    E model ! Direct employer. I have the same story as you. Came here for landing and got stuck. My passport was kept by the lady. I was told the same 'it will take a week or may be upto a month'. Did you know you could have entered back into US with approved petition and expired visa within 30 days of visiting Mexico and Canada?

    221g Yellow slip in Toronto July'14

    I am in the same boat as you were/are. Stuck in Toronto for over 4 weeks now. As some of you have mentioned:- 1. Make a US senetor talk to consulate -done that, no positive response 2. Go to the consulate counter (window) to get the status - done that, no positive response. 3. Send email- done that, no positive response. The information posted here was helpful but in my case there was no positive response. Consulates standard response "We have no control over the pace or scope of this review and unfortunately it remains unfinished." Wanted to check if there are others as well and any other way of getting more information from the consulate.

    Hey stuckinTO!! Did you get clearance? My last name is R1n1 (1=a). I know matter of fact there are lot of R1n1's in Pakistan(no offense) and Brazil (it is used as first name). Cannot blame people in Pakistan and Brazil. Consulate people need to be smart. I did masters in US and same thing was asked 'thesis topic'. It is not fare based on the topic they raise TAL. It took me several months to complete my thesis and CO understood in few seconds? In fact they kept my passport and I was assuming that the fact they kept my passport administrative processing would be faster. I was expecting it back in a week or two. It has been over 7 weeks now. What about your case ?

    My interview was on May 27. It's has been over 6 week now. VO asked me about my thesis in my Masters and asked for details about my thesis or publication on my CV. I could only show her publication details and she was like "this is your resume I need your academic CV " Why would I carry an academic CV after 8 yrs of graduations? She asked to send electronic copy along with transcripts. Sent the very next day since then no update. Visited twice at the consulate window, no new word. Standard response - still under Administrative process, we dont know how long it will take.

    Any 221g Cases Toronto in 2014

    Still no update. With today it has been over 6 weeks. I think now consulates should give rough estimate by which Administrative Processing will be finished. So that the individual (and family if applicable) can make appropriate plans to stay in a country if it is not their home country. They have been doing this for years now (221g business). They should have an estimate if this is case type 1 then 4 weeks, case type 2 then 2 weeks. I believe they send out similar kind of an information out of their consulate (based on the feed back provided by other members) for administrative processing and I am sure it is going to similar destinations every time.
