    Visa approval after 221G - Time duration?

    I am currently waiting on my 221g blue from chennai consulate. My 221g blue had just Admin Processing checked. Had visa interview on Oct 12th and still no updates. My employer, vendor and client were not contacted yet.
  3. Sharing my recent experience from Chennai US consulate. Received 221g (blue) for Admin Processing. Had H1B and H4 interview in Chennai. Been in US for 10 yrs and this is my 3 rd H1B stamping. Visa Officer asked few basic questions and took all my documents and asked me to wait in the lobby. After 3 hrs, they called me back to the counter and gave my passport and all docs back and gave the 221g blue slip and said they need to do additional administrative processing which could take few weeks. Not sure what to interpret from this. I am on E-V-C model. I had all employer docs and client and vendor letters. VO seemed to happy with all docs I provided but still gave me this 221g. Please let me know if anyone else had a similar experience. Thanks.

    221g Blue @ Chennai Consulate

    In my case, the VO gave my passport back and gave 221g blue with Admin Processing checked. Not sure how holding the passport and returning passport mean. My client or Vendor or Employer was not contacted yet.

    221g Blue @ Chennai Consulate

    Thank you so much for the reply. It gives me confidence now. Will update the forum as soon as I receive any update.
  6. Hi, I am going for visa stamping next month and from all check lists I came across in forums, there is a mention of "Employment Agreement letter". Is it the same as Offer letter or Employment verification letter describing the role and job duties? Can someone please clarify. Thanks
  7. I received 140 approval last week and today my attorney contacted me to say that the Petitioner name in the approval notice was my name instead of the company name. They have contacted USCIS to make the correction. Has anyone had a similar issue? how long would USCIS take to respond to such change ? I have my H1B extn waiting for this. Thanks

    h1 -->h4 --->h1

    My wife was on H1 last year and got her status revoked on january 2012 and moved to H4. Its been 3 months now and we want to reapply for H1 with the same employer. My questions is 1. Can we start working with the receipt notice or should we wait for the approval? Thanks
  9. Hi All...i recently went to chennai consulate for H1B stamping and was issued a 221G Blue form for admin processing. The admin processing was related to the Client contract. Even after providing the client and vendor letters the VO was not satisfied and gave a blue 221g for admin processing. Its been a week since my visa interview and i checked with my client and the US consulate had made an inquiry about my contract and my client has also replied for the query. Now i am waiting for an email or phone from consulate to submit my passport. Does anyone know how long is the wait time after the inquiry with the client and to submit the passport for stamping. Or is there anymore processing left apart from checking with the client? Please help..
  10. Hi All...my wife went for her H1 stamping last month and got rejected and applied for H4 and reached US. My question is, is there any time period i need to wait before i apply for a new H1B (using her old quota) ? Thanks

    H4 To H1 - How long should i wait

    Thanks for your reply. I have another question. The same employer will be applying for the H1 again for my wife. It will not be an amendment but a new H1B petition using the old H1b petition quota. Will that cause any problem? I mean, will they give RFE on why a new petition is being applied by same employer when the old petition was valid but the visa was denied?

    221G GREEN CHENNAI - SEPTEMBER / OCT TRACKER

    I got the below email today. "As per the US Consulate, based on the documents you submitted to them and the information elicited in your interview with an American Consular officer, they were not able to issue you an H1B work visa as the Post believes that the petitioner is unable or unwilling to provide qualifying employment and will not be able to maintain the employer-employee relationship. Therefore, your application will be soon returned to the Kentucky Consular Center (KCC). Once KCC receives a petition, it returns to the approving office of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) for review and possible revocation. Please direct all future inquiries regarding this case to the approving USCIS office." Can anyone suggest what i can do for the next steps? Does this mean the visa is rejected ?
  14. finally got the below rejection email this afternoon after 45 days of waiting... "As per the US Consulate, based on the documents you submitted to them and the information elicited in your interview with an American Consular officer, they were not able to issue you an H1B work visa as the Post believes that the petitioner is unable or unwilling to provide qualifying employment and will not be able to maintain the employer-employee relationship.

  18. I went for interview on oct 18th and was issued a 221g blue for admin processing. when i call up VFS helpdesk they say i cant track my case online. i have to wait for the email/SMS from the consulate. I was given a case number and i see that batch number before me are getting ISSUED in chennai consulate. They might be of different case or even different color form. Does this movement of batch number mean that i will get an email/SMS when i see my batch number getting ISSUED? Please advice..

    221G GREEN CHENNAI - SEPTEMBER / OCT TRACKER

    I am not sure if they contact the client/employer in all the case. It depends on why u were given 221g. in my case the 221g was blue for admin processing regarding client verification. even after providing the client letter the VO wanted to check with client directly. They did contact the client and a standard questioner was sent.

    221G GREEN CHENNAI - SEPTEMBER / OCT TRACKER

    Had interview @chennai on oct 18th and got 221g blue form but dd not ask for any additional documents but said needs additional administrative processing. its been 3 weeks and still no emails from consulate to submit the passport. The client was contacted and the response was sent back to consulate. When contacted the DOS they say its still PENDING. For 221g blue, are u guys able to track the case number on the website? i see the batch numbers closer to my batch numbers getting updated to ISSUED.
