you need to, though. It's a requirement of the Philippine government.
They don't require medical exam before the consular interview, but we are required to submit medical cert. to our employer and this is renewable every year. As for my experience during my interview, I wasn't ask anything about my job, I just presented my approved h1b, and my visa screen, however, they do ask me if my family will be joining me here. I think, questions varies with each applicant.. You will make it.. Good luck and God Bless!
Thanks, i'm good.. i'm enjoying the opportunity of having an h1b visa, currently working as an acute hemodialysis nurse here in Washington State.. i am very satisfied for the training that was given to me by my employer.. although i knew that my visa is just a temporary one, i really appreciate this kind of experience working here in the US and for another great opportunity for my children (also learning experiences for them, being able to study in different countries like Saudi Arabia, Philippines, New Zealand and now US..). Just try your very best, Pray, and you will also get the blessings... Good Luck and God Bless!!
Hi silverdragon.. yup you are right. it's not easy but i do pray that my relationship with the employer is good. It just so happened that the employer who is the administrator of the hospital is our close relative. Lets put all our trust in our God's name.
@ghillbert: cool... there's no absolute answer to all of this.. got an approved visa petition without vsc. however, i will secure one to easily change my status from h1b to green card.
@ro67sif: you are right.. it's just a matter of luck. my friend who went with a h1b visa valid for 3yrs got no specialty but she's in texas now. she thought the consul will ask her for a vsc, pay stub or whatsoever during visa stamping but luckily only the original notice of action (noa), i797 were asked.
just be ready for anything and everything before its too late. mahirap ng ma "put on hold" yong status jz because of one simple requirement.
@ retropinoy: yup im into it already. I'm communicating with the CGFNS-ICHP for the issuing of my VSC. Besides im still waiting for the important docs to arrive. Thank you.
tnx silverdragon.. yup im preparing myself now to get my VSC. Im kinda nervous if they'll ask it during the interview and got nothing to present..better ready for anything and everything. Thank you so much.
Hi everyone..i checked in the USCIS website and i got an approved I-129 petition or H1B visa petition. I am currently waiting for other docs to arrive from my employer from there i'll be scheduling myself for visa stamping interview. I really thought i won't get approved because i got an RFE. God is so good! He answered my prayer and hoping that the visa stamping interview will run so smoothly. No hard questions: Working visa for nurses doesn't need to have a Visa Screen Cert only those who are applying for I-140 or immigrant visa petition. However, you still need it when you like to change your status from H1B to green card.
Guys i got an RFE. The lawyer are responding to it before March26. We're also asking from an expert opinion to defend the argument that USCIS laid on us. Every immigration attorneys do it so i have no question on that. I hope everything went well on my status.
the only requirements i submitted to my employer are my school credentials, passport, birth cert, nclex report, credential evaluation services (ces) from cgfns, ad-interim permit from nevada, employment certificates and training cert. i already took ielts but was expired already. that's why i was advised to take toiec instead. next week i will enroll at hopkins int'l for toiec. i can have the result of the exam after 3-4days and this is cheaper compared to ielts. i will also send the "request for validation of registration/licenses for visa screen" form to my board of nursing. others didn't do it, they we're given vsc without their bon sending cgfns-ichp the required form. do you think they will isuse me vsc (once i passed) without cgfns-ichp verifying my status with the bon? huh!! gotta lot of things to do before i can have the decision whether approved or rfe. i have known one person that she don't have vsc submitted on her application but during the consul interview she was requested to bring it. at least in that case, she don't have to wait 60days.
yes ur right.. i dont have my VSC yet that's why i have to get ready with it in case USCIS will ask for RFE. I dont know why lawyers submitted my paperworks when in fact it was lacking.. but anyway, i have to secure my VSC before time is running out. Thank you guys..
to tssalgad: Congratulations to you! i heard your story from this thread from the start. I read the whole 33 pages and in some point it enlightens me. I have my H1B petitioned last October 1, 2009 in the state of NY. The representative (agency) told me that it will took 4-6mos of approval. I guess the USCIS will soon ask me for RFE because i didn't have my VSC yet..gosh... i will ask for it then from the issuing body. In case, what are other documents considered for RFE? just getting ready, in case, hope not... God pls help.
