  1. 221g is not refusal...it clearly states in that form that the case is pending.

    221(g) is refusal and additional processing is required before final decision.. refer the links below


    Administrative Processing: 221(g)

    If your visa application was refused with a "221 (g)" notation for further administrative processing, please read these instructions before checking your case status below.

    Please visit the Department of State Travel Site for information on administrative processing wait times.

  2. Hi All,

    Case status on DOS is refused, is this same as 221(g) or does it means something else?

    Case Creation Date: 24-Feb-2012 Response Date: 20-Jul-2012

    Your application was refused. Please see the letter or other instructions you received at the interview. What will be the next steps? will my employer get NOIR or will it get completly rejected, can my employer file another visa with CAP exempted?

    Thanks in advance,


  3. I am working in India and getting paid in US for more than year now.

    As long as your employer is getting paid from your client, it should not be an issue. However, if your petition got rejected after being sent back to USCIS you may not be able to work for your employer any more.

    I would suggest you to file a new petition from new or same employer if you know your case is genuine. I re-filed application from same employer and still waiting for approval after getting a 221g again with the new petition!!


    How are you managing your Taxes? and is it ok to work from India for long time?



  4. your case has been sent back to the USCIS for further review and possible revocation, the current I797 is of no use untill USCIS will reaffirm the petition. Certainly there is no 221g needs to be issued in this particular instance.

    Either you can file a new petition with new employer or wait for the reaffirmation notice from the USCIS (it may take upto a month or year).

    Thanks for the info, I have two questions

    1. Can the new employer use the same petition and go with cap exemption?

    2. If my current employer allows me to work from India, can I work and how long I can work? can they run US Payroll? ( my employer does not have any complany in India, is US based company)

  5. I joined new H1 B employer in the month of Jan and traveled to India in the month of Feb, I attended interview at hyd on 28th Feb,Visa Officer was very particular on the company address and the internal project, I am working on (internal project is real and is in good shape), he was asking on my they are not advertising on internet etc, at the end of the interview he said that my cases will be send back to US and did not handover any 221g slip, when I asked how to track the progress, he said, I can mail them or if everything is ok in US I will get a mail or courier,

    What does this mean?

    What all options I have now, my I797 is valid till 2014

    Thanks in Advance

  6. Hi,

    I'm here on F1, now approved H1, have i-797 and belongs to AP.

    I'm going for stamping, and wondering whether to go Chennai consulate or Hyderabad.

    can someone please share their experiences for better rate of Visa success?


    Hi, Can you please share your exprience with visa interview and location you attended?

  7. Anybody please..

    If it is only University Transcripts, you will get approved visa once you submit your original transcripts, I am not sure about the specific process of your university but, I am from Andhra University, I got my color xerox of my degree and marlkists and went to Registarar office and paid the required fee for my Graduation and PG. they will verify and attest your copies and put them in the cover provided by and then seal them and stamp it outside. you can take help of someone who is India to help you get this done soon. I could get all these things done in 10 days and got my approval in another 10 days (Premium Processing)

    All the best

  8. @shashineela

    Try your luck by applying with another employer. Your old petition takes year or more for reaffirmation.

    My case was pending since Sep 9th 2010 (17 Months). They neighter approved, nor rejected.

    whenever i contact them for status, they reply that my case is under process. Same response since 17 months ( More than 100 times).

    So better luck next time. By the way, who suggest you to go Hyderabad consulate?

    @arjunmca : Do you have any suggestion on which consulate is better? Chennai or Hyderabad?

  9. Hi,

    I travelled to US on 21-Mar-2011, on L1B with Company A and my visa got expried on 24th April 2011, my I94 was valid till 12-Dec-2011, my company A filed my extention in the month of July and got RFE and responed on 30th Nov 2011.

    In the meantime, company B applied for H1 with status change on 22nd Nov 2011 and got approval on 27th Dec 2011.


    1. I have resigned from company A, and join Company B on my new H1,what will be the stauts if the L1 extension of company A is approved?

    2. My Son and wife are in India, when can I apply their H4 visa?

    Thanks in Advance
