    I got the clearance email today at 12:30 est and submitted the passport. relieved. :) @tntapr2014 I hope you got it too. CEAC status still shows 'admin processing'. My loomis location is burlington. I asked if I can pick up the passport. They said 'you will get an email that your passport is ready, reply to that email that you want to pick it up from toronto. But, there will be an extra charge for that'. I'll wait for that email or the waybill number update... I was preparing myself to write to the senator if I didnt get an update today. Total time to clearance email = 31 days Definitely never wish to see toronto consulate or even canada for the next visa stamp!

    I took up a neural networks course in my masters. And my current job involves some work on cryptography. In software/computer engineering, these are pretty much standard technologies. I dont know why its taking more than 1 month to review this, when it takes less than 1 month to renew the H-1. the ceac status website for me shows the Status updated date as April 28. What about you? Clearance email or not, I'm planning on visiting the consulate window tomorrow at 1pm and hopefully get an update. I'll be in a brown/ red shirt and blue jeans, if you want to catch up.

    Any 221g Cases Toronto in 2014

    Hi folks, I am stuck since a few weeks now for my H-1B extension stamping. I'm on H-1 since 2009. My first stamping in India was without any hassles. Working full time for one of the Big 5 software companies in the bay area since 2011. MS in Electrical/ Computer Engineering. 4/28: Interview. Asked about my courses in MS. Smiled, kept my I-797 and handed a 221g yellow saying you should get your visa in about 1 month. Emailed my resume, job description and port of entry details the same day. 4/29: Received acknowledgement saying documents received. 5/14: Sent a copy of H-1B LCA and a copy of the same I-797. Though it wouldn't hurt. No acknowledgement till date. 5/20: It was a tuesday and 3 weeks had gone without a reply so, went to the consulate window with some hope. Was told it's still in Admin Processing. I guess I'll just have to wait out another week. Anybody in a similar situation recently?
