H1B visa drop box asked to come for fingerprints


I recently submitted documents drop box at Hyderabad VAC on 25 July for H1 , H4 I received email from consulate after 3 days , to come for finger prints.

I went to consulate the given finger prints Yesterday. No update so far.

I have new passport and change of employer. Any idea, when i will get my passports? I need to travel to USA urgent.



You will either be called for an interview or receive passport with stamped visa in mail. I think you will receive the visa. Please allow at least 2-3 weeks because the fingerprint check goes into a global database these days.

to update the status of my visa, I have issued visa 2 days after finger prints.

Hi Vijay,

How long it took for you to get the passport to hand.
I have same situation . Submitted documents drop box at Hyderabad VAC on 18 December for H1. Got a call on Dec 22nd to come for finger prints.
Apart from finger prints, any other other documents they asked? Is there any interview happened?


Hi, I called only for figurine prints, no documents asked, but safe side I took all documents. Next day I received update to collect the passports.

Thank you for the reply. Will wait till Jan 3rd for the Finger prints date.
