Additional Info / Notes I had most of these documents except a copy of the i-129 petition. The VO first asked me for the i797, then the client letter, letter from employer, -- then when he asked me for the i129, I told him I was not in possession of it at that moment. The interview paused abruptly there and I was handed a blue slip. What a lot of people do not understand (like myself at the time of the interview) is that the DHS officials at the consulate treat the application as a fresh one although the USCIS has already been through the same set of documents and issued a visa based on beneficiary's eligibility. On March 30 2018, I got an email asking me to submit the passport. I Submitted it the following monday and got the passport back a couple of weeks later. I landed in the US on April 27th, 2018.
