    Hello folks: if possible, can you all please put your date of interview (when you got the 221g and color) include date, month & year also include when its approved this way we can have a table to track which one was the last approved 221g - so we can estimate the time for our 221g to be processed based on the last approved 221g can we all do it? mine: interview date: Spetember 11 2013 issue resolved: not yet

    here is my case summary Interview @Toronto. Given 221G (yellow) - admin processing VO took 797a original and resume. I suspect it TAL but I'm not sure Update#1 on Oct 16 2013 - first time in 35 days case update date changed to current date 16th October 2013 - still shows as AP Update#2 on Oct 17 2013 - the case update date changed to 17th October 2013 - still shows as AP Update#3 - got clearance email on Oct 31 2013 - asked me to submit the passport "in person" on a Tuesday or Thursday. I submitted the passport on Nov 5 2013 and got it back on Nov 7 2013. Drove back to USA the same night. interview date: September 11 2013 - got 221G yellow, VO took resume and I797 CEAC website update: Oct 16 & 17 Clearance email: Oct 31 PP submitted: Nov 5 (email said me to submit the PP in person on a Tuesday or Thursday) PP collected: Nov 7 - drove back to USA the same night I was in the same boat as you are now. My only comment will be that there is nothing we can do about it. So just wait and try to have fun :) Wish you all good luck

    @bi - yes it came from that id...saying they can conclude my application, asking me to appear in person within 90 days. also mentioned that it will take 1 work week! @justin - my guess would be, when consulate complete the paperwork for loomis to pick up then it will change to issued. reading some earlier posts it looks like by the time the status on ceac website changes to "issued" you can actually collect your passport...a guy like me might as well reach home i guess :P ...as i told u all before the ceac website is a useless update if it means nothing @cukegene - thanks mate...it was my b'day gift from the consulate :) ... i sincerely wish all of you get your clearances very soon. @mav: thanks mate...3 days ago a friend suggested me that i was thinking way too much and asked me to stay low...i felt he was correct and logged out 3 days ago and didnt post anything from then.... but when i saw i got my clearance i wanted to share with you guys as it would be a sign of relief for you guys too...he suggested me today to post it on the forum so it will bring some hopes to ppl who are still waiting... i will post the timeline once i get my passport back! thanks all - just sit tight and hope for the best.

    @justin - it is and it will be 'administrative processing' until the passport is ready to be picked up by loomis. i think printing the visa, sticking it on the passport and arranging the paperwork for shipping is also administrative processing my ceac date changed to 31 oct though ...idk when it did but it did changed

    @ justin- ya man atleast we don't dream of an email everyday. If they say it will take 45 days or any x number of days then it would have been a little better than current situation @f1studentopt - I agree with the fact that some of the work is done by DOS, and to me too it makes no sense that why would all work from DC move to Toronto ..they could move it to NYC , but we don't know what the terms are within consulates are. And it's also possible that the guy who told me this is an idiot ..as I said it's not a reliable source @cukegene- there is a guy called Senthil, he had his interview on sept 4th, another guy on 9th and mine on 11th, we all have crossed 45 days and getting close to 60 day mark! I think and is purely my suspicion that there might some some kind of counter which triggers for an update after particular number of days. It can be 30/45/60 I don't know...it might mean something or it might be my curiosity speaking or it's my thinking about what the consulates strategy is...I am not saying we might get a visa on 60th day but I think there will be an update atleast - obviously it will mean nothing if the update is just status update change on ceac website.... Well the comforting part is you can actually question the consulate once you hit the the 60day period! Atleast per the websites.

    Administrative Processing - Ottawa, CA

    were you given any form? did the VO take your passport? or he gave it you? did they mentioned anything about PIMS? if the VO has your passport and you have not heard anything yet then you should go to consulate and ask for an update... there was a similar case here in Toronto (look for content from t2v profile) the lazy people at Toronto were just sitting on the candidate's file doing nothing although it was ready to be issued...then they went to the consulate and asked for an update and the VO told it should have been already approved and surprized that the candidate did get any info yet... so if your passport was taken by VO and no form was given to you then please contact the consulate

    @Justin - i agree ...... yesterday i got a new piece of information that the consular office in Washington DC is under renovation/construction and hence all the processing that is supposed to be done at Washington is being done at Toronto consulate...i have no idea how genuine this information is ...we will have to do some google search to find any relevant info. if this is true then it explains the delay!

    @Justin - no update ... at this point i have stopped checking the ceac website as it means nothing! its just a useless update if the "status update date" is changed...mine changed twice and its been more than a week from last update...what happened?- nothing... i am not even going to check that website from now onwards.... also from this forum and various other forums it is very obvious that the ceac website shows an update everytime you call/email them ....why do i want to get my hopes high if that update means nothing! just to be more sad later on? duck it... i'm done with that website

    this is very sad to hear that you wife has been waiting for no reason.... this is a very scary sign for rest of us. no wonder why i have been waiting for 44 days and many others for even longer time ....i doubt if the guys working at Toronto consulate are even eligible to do the job they are doing

    thanks for the updated info .... yeah if the VO has kept the passport then typically i've seen that visa is issued within 3-5 days... i am also direct employee dude ... no client/consultant stuff... i am a mechanical engr..work for auto industry ....i wasnt told anything other than "we need to do some admin processing"... i didnt bother to look if the VO wrote something on my DS160 confirmation page as i was not expecting any problem ...to be frank, i got to know about 221g, PIMS, TAL etc only now! i.e., after i got 221G well...congrats to you guys!
