  1. @san56 I said Yes since it was true and its also fact that they already were aware of. When I appeared for the stamping initially, I was working with Employer Company X and client was Company Y. This stamping went into admin processing. I reappeared for stamping with Company Y (same company that was my client earlier). After I answered the question, the officer just nodded and said that visa was approved.

    Transfer of visa while struck in 221g

    I was in similar situation until just last month 1. Yes, you can transfer the H1b to different employer while 221g is in progress 2. You can send email to usTraveldocs helpdesk asking how to proceed. In my case they asked me to send them email confirming that I would like to close the current visa stamping application that is pending 221g and I understand that it can not be reopened once it's close. Make sure you mention that you are asking for closing of vista stamping application and not talking about withdrawing h1b petition. These are two different things. In this case, closing the current pending visa stamping process is sufficient.
  3. Sure thing. Here are the questions asked during interview - Where you would be working - replied with new employer name and location What are your job duties What's your salary going to be In the end the interviewer said: I see you appeared for stamping in last Fall for employer X and now you are here with petition for employer Y who was your end client when you were with employer X. Is that true? This was the last question.
  4. @ashukla Thank you so much for your assistance. I applied for visa stamping with new employer/end client, and the consulate approved the same. The interview went very smoothly, not many questions were asked. I filled in new DS-160, paid visa stamping fees once again, scheduled the appointment for fingerprinting and consulate visit. Before consulate visit, I emailed the US Travel helpdesk support alias asking to close the previous application that was pending in administrative processing/221g.
  5. Dear Ashukla, I too got 221g/Admin pending recently on my H-1B visa stamping, it's been 90 days and no updates. My end client filed for transfer and it's approved. I am trying to understand the process to get this visa stamped. My detailed post here, can you please help with answers? Regards,
  6. Looking for assistance on how to go about visa stamping given the situation I am in. I came to India on vacation in October, 2017 and did drop-box, personal interview at Mumbai consulate for H-1B stamping, EVC model. I got 221g/Administrative processing, and the visa stamping is still stuck in Administrative Processing. Meanwhile my end client filed for H-1B change of employer, the petition was approved by USCIS last week on February 5, 2018. My question is how do I proceed from here? Do I fill in new DS-160 and pay visa stamp fees once more? If go to USATravelDocs website to schedule appointment, it is going to send me for dropbox option again. I believe I need to rather show up for in person interview at the Consulate. So how do I schedule appointment? Also I believe my current employer will have to withdraw the H-1B stamping/petition that is currently in Admin Processing. When should this happen? Before I visit the consulate or can I carry the withdrawal letter when I visit the consulate? While filling in DS-160, if the previous application is still in pending status, is it still considered as 221g refusal? Regards,
