  1. Hi I'm in the same boat. Can you please share your experience. Will be waiting for your kind reply. Thanks
  2. Hi Fellow H-1B's I attended my VISA on 5th NOV 2013 @ TORONTO. My VISA officer is a lady & she asked me few questions, & then asked about my research work during my masters. I told every thing related to my work and then she asked my resume, I provided the soft copy of it. Later she asked me my I-20's and she verified and then she talked with some one in the office & later issued a yellow and green slip. These are 221G forms, they asked me to send me the details concerning the exact nature of your field of study/research, CV, list of publications & source of funding. I send my Resume hard copy & publications to the email that was given to me. I did my masters in Computer Science & did my thesis in Visual cryptography (which deals with security) My question to you is - 1) Does any one came out with same scenario like this ? 2) How long is the processing time ? Please share the information, it will be helpful for me. I 'm so tensed. Thanks

    Attended interview got White slip...

    @Sai96: Yes, I do got the green slip requesting CV, publications & source of funding. Yes, I'm a Full-time. No updates as of today. I submitted my CV & two published papers on the same day of my interview through email. Everyone are getting clearance emails, but there is no specific time. Today is the 17th day for me. @Wishmaster: My valuable suggestion to you is, don't come to Toronto. If you have an option to change the consulate, do it. @All: It's not a good practice to come to third country to do your stamping, that what I learned (If you don't care, then take the chances) NOTE: Folks, please add your info into "checkee" - for easy tracking (look my post @ Posted 10 November 2013 - 12:54 PM) - http://forum.murthy....221gs/?p=258622 (look at this form, you will find more cases)

    Hi toronto111313, I can answer few questions, as per my knowledge. 1. I have read from the posts - YES, if you have multiple entry VISA to canada, you can leave and come back (Please check with attorney before you make up your mind. 2. Your case is exactly like my case, but I'm not on EVC, I'm a FT. I got a Yellow and Blue form. My research work falls under TAL, so the VO asked to submit my resume, publications & source of funding. I submitted my resume & 2 publications to the email address written on the blue form, by the VO. Now I'm in the waiting game. 3. My officer didn't tell me anything, she just told it needs to be further processed. I told my officer is anything wrong from my end. She told there is nothing, It's a normal process. 4. Usually they request docs on your blue form. As said, they requested your resume, publications and source of funding, & you submitted. If they need anything further, they will request you and you can communicate through your email. I have a question to u - What major are you in ? Please add your entry to "checkee".

    @CPS007 - I got the same request, & I submitted my CV, Publication-1 & Publication-2 on the same day. My research work falls under TAL (Technology Alert List). I did my research under Cryptography. I'm not sure how much time it takes, now I'm in the waiting list. VO took my resume soft copy and returned my PP & I797 and told me to send them all the required items once I get an email from consulate. Does any one heard anything ?

    I'm a FT employee in a reputed company. If your background falls under TAL (No matter, if you are FT or EVC - they will go through further Administrative Processing) This is what I observed so far

    @ ravi6775 - how long it's taking to get the clearence ? @ heuristix - ya, I saw that, thanks I submitted my CV and two publications to the Consulate yesterday, this morning I got an email saying that - "Thanks for the updated info... Please be assured that we will contact you as soon as your review is completed." I asked for the time line - they responded back saying that usually it takes 60 days or more based on the case :( I got Yellow & Green form Yellow has a tick mark on "Necessary Administrative Processing" Green has a tick mark on "Details concerning the exact nature of your field of study/research, CV, list of publications & source of funding" I got my passport & I797 form back, the VISA officer kept my soft copy of my resume. If you are same like me, please let me know the communication b/w you and consulate. Where are you staying ? - how long you have been waiting ?
