    @nbendi,sorry for my late response.Your case looks bit different from mine as the VO kept all of the documents.In mine, I think it was only a verfication about my job nature (possibly a TAL check)as the VO took the work explanation letter from me and I work in a Pharmaceutical firm.Since you are working in IT field, I am not sure exactly what kind of verfication is going on with the given fact that you didn't receive any 221g forms.But since the VO told you that your VISA is approved, I think it is a good sign that your case can get cleared at any time.Goodluck...!!

    H1-B Denied in Hyderabad

    JoeF, I have seen lot of times that you gave very good suggestions.Really appreciate it. I have a very big question which always running in my mind.Why don't the US authorities or US consulates turn their foucs in eradicating the roots instead of trying to cut the branches.I mean to say why can't they erdaciate the shady consultancies instead of targetting the employees.These shady consultancies are in the US and why can't they be targeted? Eventhough I am noway related to any consultancies, but becoz of their mistakes,lot of legitimate cases were suffered/are suffered/will get suffered.Also,why don't the USCIS do a thorough investiagtion about the consultancy as well as the candidate before they issue the visa? It is really very unfortunate that all candidates (legitimate and fake)come under the same screening umbrella.

    Friends, Finally, today I received my passport. Interview date: Sep 06,2011 Slip : 221g Pink Slip Passport received : Oct 12,2011. But, my wife's ( for H-4) passport is stil on hold.Don't know why. I hope and pray to GOD that all of the legitimate cases should get their passport soon.Goodluck.
  7. thelastresort: I think your claim is unwanted and unnecessary at this point of time.We are together trying to minimize the present processing time for the H-1Bs and we hope somebody will hear our concern.If we keep on posting petitions for unnecessary reasons, the REAL voices may not be heared.It is not only my concern, but also other concerns too as you can from the replies for your claim.Please try to co-operate.
  8. Thank you for the info Mohan.
  9. Mohan, my case is similar to your case.I work in a Pharmaceutical firm.During the visa interview the Indian VO told me that it wil take 4 to 8 weeks to get my passport back.Did the VO say any duration for you? Also in your post you have stated that you attended visa interview on Aug 29th and got the ppt back on Sep 19 and you have specified 30 days.But when I counted the all the days (including the weekends) it looks like there were only 22 days. Please reply per your convenience.Thank you.
  10. @kuku82: thank you for briging attention about the petition.It is really appreciable to the person who initiated this petition.Probably somebody can hear our voice of concern through this petition.

    @illusion: This is my second time stamping,last time it was only PIMS verfication and this time my case has PIMS in addition to other verification. Similar to your employer, my employer gave me the same conditions - should be back within a definite period of time.But when we contact US embassy, they have the standard reply. I completely understand the importance of safety of a country as well as preventing the fraud (made by senseless people), but the system what the US consulate follows is not completely acceptable,they are pushing everybody (even the legitimate cases) under the same umbrella.This is really giving a hard time, creates issues within the family and overall it is making people mentally sick (in addition to losing hard earned money).The reasons can be continued. I am sure the US consulate can revise the system and preapre a more appropriate one. I saw a petition in this forum to white house.I would request everybody (stuck and non-stuck) to sign in and please add your voice of concern.Probabaly somebody can atleast hear (IF NOT FEEL THE PAIN) we are going through. The worst case is if our parents are in sick (at the end stage), we couldn't make a decision to fly rightaway to see them instead, we have to console our employers before we fly as if we are the reasons behind to cause the delay. Expecting an improved system in place by the consulates.

    Friends, I got a pink slip on Sep 06, the VO told that our ( mine- H1B and my wife's- H4) got apporved,but later she handed over a pink slip and told us to visit the another counter ( an Indian VO was there).He took our passports and part of my LCA letter (work explanation letter) and my resume.He also took a xerox copy of my I-797 and told me it will take 4-8 weeks to receive the passport. This is my fifth week.Still waiting. FYI, I work for a Pharmaceutical firm and don't have muslim name.Already I cancelled my return flight. The waiting time really kills.Hopefully will hear good news soon.
  13. Hemant, I am very sorry to hear your case,but I am not that experienced with visas and I won't be able to give you any suggestions. Probably seniors can guide you. Goodluck.

    PIMS and TAL (may be)

    PIMS and TAL (may be)

    Hi Friends, On Sep6,2011 myself(H-1B) and my wife(h4) had been to the visa renewal at the chennai US consulate.The VO verified all the docs and told that my visa has been issued,but along with that she told me to appear before the Indian VO at counter 31 and he asked for resume and a part of the letter of LCA and he told that it will take 4-8 wks in general to issue the passport.But my case is also under PIMS verification as the VO wrote PIMS on my sheet.Wondering whether the case will be cleared only for PIMS or other verification process too.If anybody came across similar situation,please share your experience. Thank you.
