    I am on my 4th working day right now, so I am sure I have many more days to wait. I am currently roaming around within Canada (might as well make a partial vacation out of the wait time !) , so I will let you know when I am back in Ottawa.

    Yes, I will post my updates in this forum, and will keep monitoring for others' progress as well. Hopefully, everyone else involved in this thread will post their updates so everyone gets an idea of wait times.

    221G OTTAWA SEP 2016

    Hi sureshbabu, In Ottawa, the VO took my resume and handed my passport back to me. If I remember right, it took about 15 to 18 working days to complete the clearance check in Chennai (the VO retained my passport then). Even in Chennai, I was asked to submit only my resume. The visa was given for 2 years instead of the usual duration (3 yrs OR till the I797 expires).

    221G OTTAWA SEP 2016

    Hello all, The VO gave me a blue 221g form and asked for my resume in Ottawa on Oct 13th. Her questions were What company do you work for and what does the company do? What at is your role? Did you do research during your masters? Can I see your previous visa? ( I had a 221g with 'Clearance received' stamped on the visa from 2013 in Chennai) Once she saw my previous visa, she mentioned "We have to do the same check we did in 2013" and handed my passport back. She said the check can take 3 weeks or 3 months. I will post updates to this forum.
