    H1 and H4 attended the interview. Got my h1 with visa in passport but H4 (EAD) still in admin processing. VO approved our visas in the interview
  2. I recently went for Visa stamping in Hyderabad (December 6th). The VO officer approved our visas in the interview. I got my passport next day but my wife who is on H4 EAD did not get her passport back. The online status shows that it is in Administrative processing. I called/emailed VFS and I keep getting the same response every time. Not sure what is happening. I have my return planned on December 25th and looks like I might have to postpone my return flight. Anyone in Similar situation?
  3. @ Irvine.... thats correct... Calendar days includes holidays and week ends... Please see my post at top of this page... mine is also a transfer to a direct employer full time ... its a pretty straight forward approval,but took 14 calendar days for the approval... don't worry it is the way USCIS works and you shod try getting used to live with the things they are... Don't worry i am sure yours will get approved in the next 2-3 days...
  4. Finally my visa is approved after a long wait... Application date: 07/25 Receipt date : 07/26 Upgraded to PP : 08/24 Receipt date : 08/25 ( Status changed from Initial review to Acceptance) Approval : 09/06 ( Almost 14 calendar days) Mine is a visa transfer to a direct full time employer from a desi consultancy.I think this is a common thing for USCIS to wait till the last minute to approval... There is no point in paying $1225 if we have to wait till the last minute (14 calendar days)...But i am glad it is approved...Sairam! @irvine...dont worry you will get the visa but have to wait for some more time... All the Best to everyone!
