What is the name of your state? Kansas


I am planning to apply for an H-1B visa in Burkina Faso (my home country) sometime in July or August. I am currently on OPT ending at the end of June and awaiting an approval letter from BCIS for H-1B application filed in April.

I am trying to establish a checklist of documents that I would need to provide when I go to the embassy in Burkina Faso. So far, I know that I will need the approval letter from BCIS and the offer letter from my employer. What else do I need to have or be aware of?
