  • Stamping Of H1B Visa On Passport

    In order to get the H1B Visa stamped on a passport the foreign professional will need to show that the petition filed for the visa was approved. Once the petition is approved a H1B visa interview will need to be scheduled. The interview may be scheduled at the closest US embassy or consulate. The process of stamping the H1B visa on a passport is implemented in the following order:

    Photograph

    The H1B Visa photograph will need to meet the following requirements:

    • The digital photograph should be square.
    • Dimensions – Minimum 600 pixels by 600 pixels, Maximum 1200 pixels by 1200 pixels.
    • The photograph must be in colour.
    • The photograph should be in JPEG format.
    • The size of the file should not exceed 240 kilobytes.

    Form DS160

    • Form DS160 will need to be completed online on the website of the US Department of State.
    • A confirmation form with a 10-digit barcode will appear once Form DS160 has been successfully filled. The applicant should print the confirmation form for future reference, this form will also be required during the visa interview.

    Scheduling an appointment and payment for application

    After completing the payment of the fees associated with the H1B visa, the applicant will need to schedule two interviews. The first will be with the Offsite Facilitation Centre and the other will be with the consulate or embassy. The Visa Application Centre required the applicant to schedule an appointment a minimum of two days before the interview with the consulate. The Visa Application Centre will collect the biometric information of the applicant. The fees associated with the H1B visa can be cleared electronically. The payment, once made, is only valid for a year, therefore, the applicant should schedule an appointment for an interview within that time.

    Interview

    The applicant will need to go to the indicated office for the visa interview. He/she will need to present the following documents:

    • Expired and current passports.
    • Digital photograph of the applicant
    • Form DS160 visa application conformation page with Visa Application Centre stamp
    • Receipt of visa application
    • All documents related to the petition
    • The appointment letter
    • Supplementary documentation

    • Indian Visas to Cost 50% More for Foreign Nationals

      The Indian government has decided to raise visa fees for foreign nationals across the board in an effort to modify and rationalise the charges levied for acquiring an Indian Visa. The government has decided to up the visa fee by 50% across different categories.

      This government move is being seen as a tit-for-tat measure as the hike in visa for short-term employment visa comes as a reciprocal measure, with countries such as the US, Australia, and New Zealand planning or already placing curbs on work visa for Indians. In spite the fact that foreign nationals working in India are quite few, government officials justified this move saying visa fee structure has always been dependent on periodicity and reciprocity.

      As per government notification, a tourist visa for will now cost as follows:

      • For visas up to 1 year: $153 instead of the earlier $100.
      • For visas over 1 year and up to 5 years: $306 instead of the earlier $120.
      • Visa up to 1 year for UK nationals: $248 compared to the earlier $162.
      • Visa for over a year and up to 5 years for UK nationals: $741 instead of the earlier $484.

      For employment visas, France, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and Thailand nationals will now have to pay $459 for visas spanning over 1 year and up to 5 years, instead of the $300 charged earlier.

      For short-term working visas, Israeli nationals pay up the highest with the new fee being $1,714, increased from the previous fee of $1,120. Pakistani citizens across all categories have to pay Rs.100 now, instead of Rs.15.
