H-1B visa interview
Former Visa Officer Insights

After getting picked in the lottery, you want to make sure you prepare as much as possible to secure your visa.

Pass your H-1B visa interview

The H-1B visa is a non-immigrant work visa for individuals with specialized skills. It's a common path for F-1 students to work after they graduate or for individuals living abroad to bring their work experience to the United States.

221(g) administrative processing is a way of a Visa Officer saying "maybe" to your visa application. This can cause major delays in your case.

Get to know our Officers

"Good news! My H1b visa was approved alongside my wife's H4 visa. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to you, Argo Visa and most especially, the Officer who guided us so well. After our consultation, our plan changed and the new plan worked like magic. We were more confident and my wife was also calm. We couldn't have done this without your help. Thank you very much for changing our story!”

Common Issues H-1B
Visa Applicants have:

Our team has interviewed thousands of H-1B visa applicants during our time as Visa Officers, so we know what kind of issues you may run into at your interview.

Explaining your experience

You need to be able to show why you deserve this type of visa.

Previous refusals

Visa Officers can see all of your visa history.

Your “story” doesn’t make sense

The Visa Officer needs to feel confident that you will use the visa properly.

Not showing enough ties to home country

This is a non-immigrant visa, so it's critical that you show your ties to your home country.

OPT Fraud or other issues

There have been a rising number of cases where an individual's OPT experience impacts the result of their H-1B interview.

Know all the details of your DS-160 and travel plans

Make sure all the details are accurate and that you can tell them to the Officer at your interview.

Don’t use single word answers

Visa Officers hate one-word answers. You need to give answers that are thorough, yet concise.

Be confident when talking about your situation

Confidence is key! Being overly nervous will make it very difficult to showcase the strengths of your case.

Be proactive

It's your responsibility to give the Visa Officer the information they need to approve your visa.
