@stuck22Nov

Are you on the discussion group on chehra kitaab (translate into english)?

A bit worried about your wait being so long. Would like to get in touch with you if possible.

It should come next week. They are clearing pending cases with a vengeance. Hang in there.

I received green letter on 11 Jan. Submitted documents on 12 Jan.

I have a question. Have you guys received any confirmation email confirming the receipt of documents or just following auto response that I received? I just want to double check.

----------------------------------
This is an automated response
Thank you for contacting the Nonimmigrant Visa Unit of the American Consulate General, Mumbai.

OK I think its time for me to be off that chart....lol. I really appreciate the chart and updating the dates and # of days on it. GREAT JOB !

OK here's my details :
Interview - 12th Nov
They asked me to submit the most recent employment letter/contract. Make sure you have it and not the old one when you joined the firm

Docs submitted -20th Nov (Saturday so count it as 22nd Nov ie when I got their confirmation email)

Checked by email and calling DOS but no use. Not really sure if that helps but I did it anyways.

Jan-31st Finally got that email at 2.30 pm. Going to submit passport tomorrow morning.

It was for H1-b and I work for a research institute in Nanotechnology area. I have Ph.D in Chemistry.

I will keep you guys posted as to when I get back my passport with Visa stamped in it.

Phew !

Hi Guys,

I have the same 221(g) green form...Was asked to submit passport on 9th Nov and havent heard back since then. All enquiries say its under admin processing. Also i have seen cases where passports have been returned without visa stamped and a denial letter.... this is for Delhi though ... just got curious and wanted to see whats happening in Mumbai ... Dont want to dishearten anyone...but as far as Delhi emmbassy goes....mail for submission of passport does not necessarily mean visa approval ... although the embassy should not ask for it unless they want to approve our visas .... no one knows their way of working and if at all they follow a standard procedure ...

all the guys who got eamils to submit their passports recently ... have you got your visas or any communication thereafter?

Best of Luck to All

I submitted my passport on 28th Jan (Friday), and VFS is still not showing any status change on their website.

Anyone who submitted around that time got their passport back? Or did anyone try smsing 57333?

Thanks

@akd_80:

Green slip for Mumbai means TAL processing (i.e. study or work usually involving research in a sensitive technology area). This may not be the case in Delhi.
