    221G GREEN CHENNAI CONSULATE --- AUGUST TRACKER

    1. Little confusion on why you were given both green and pink forms. May be you can let us know on what were tick marked on both the forms 2. Think you can track the pink forms at chennai consulate . Arent you? If so what status is it showing Since they returned all your documents and retained your passport, you should be all fine but (i guess) they might be doing/waiting for some security clearance

    221G GREEN CHENNAI CONSULATE --- AUGUST TRACKER

    These are the timelines: (on observation) Cases where Passport is asked to submit along with 221g- anytime between 4 days to 2 weeks . In our case its 3 weeks because of ramzan, ganesh chathurdi and following US long weekend holidays Cases where Passport is NOT asked to submit along with 221g - anytime between 4-6 weeks Atleast I did not see any rejections in june,july and august till date ( as seen from the posts)

    There are many people who were asked to submit their passports later for Green 221g and got their visas.check Jun/Jul tracker. W.r.t H1 transfer - the only step required is to e-mail the consulate that you are withdrawing your old application. You can appear for the interview again with new petition.

    current H1 B stamping issues

    If you are a fulltime employee and your company is in good standing reg. taxes filing and other things then you need not worry much. Just make sure you've all documentation with you- your project deatils,team,reporting manager..etc Mostly the contractors are facing such AP/AAP issues

    Thank you everyone for all your wishes. @ravi_ki I don't know whether my vendor/client was contacted. I can let you know after I get to US and check with them @aaru221g The latest updated status can always be known by calling DOS even though the consulate may not update you with latest information.Call them once a week or 2 weeks @221gchennai Gr8..Congrats.Very Good to see positive responses. @pranavi2008 There is no way we can check the status online for Green 221g @ chennai consulate. All we can do is either call/mail consulate for every 2 weeks to know the update. I would suggest to mail them and not call them, generally they'll respond with in 2 days for the mail.

    Got the reply from the consulate saying that - 'You may check with VFS today as your passport wil be there at 3 Pm'. Not mentioned whether it is approved or not. Called consulate and they responded that wait till you get the passport and check. Didn't understand why they are so rude. Got very anxious...and called DOS during starting hours of their day ie 8:30AM(EST) itself and got the update that it is still pending. Got very nervous..just got a feeling that the database might not have been updated and called them again at 11:30 AM and this time got the good news that my Visa was issued and the passport was sent. Hope n pray that everybody else also will get their visas soon..as I know how difficult it is to go thru all this. All D Best to all. PS:Mine is a very long story and will soon post it in a separate thread

    You can consider H4 option if you have that because it's been already long time since you submitted your docs.

    Oh man! This is very weird. This is the first instance I'm hearing about such a case. Not exactly sure why the VO asked to revoke ur previous petition - May be another ploy to delay the things because everybody is finding this way to get back into US and they want to tighten the screws this way also? But this is very unfortunate because we've a client waiting for us and have a proper employment based on new petition approval. Some experts should step in to explain this case. My suggestion is to consult an attorney to find a way out of this..

    Business Executive Program

    Major MNCs/Companies send their canditates through this process, irrespective of location and type of visa.My company did the same for me in 2007. As far as my exp that time was considered, 1. BEP canditates will be given that colored folder by the company itself well before ( normal visa applicants in india would get it at the consulate) 2. All BEP canditates were allowed to sit at a different location though the process is the same I dont think atleast these days BEP process is helping much in terms of getting the visa. Even if the VO has a small doubt, he can give us a slip anytime. Its just the time and the documentation we carry

    @221gchennai - No update from my side as well.Since there are many holidays in the last week and this monday happens to be long weekend in US, probabaly we'll have to wait till next week. @Muhammedh - Sorry to hear your case. Since it is green 221g, may be you should give a chance before considering h1b transfer. The success rate of green 221g is high (based on the posts in this forum). I would suggest you to wait for 1-2 months. Again it depends on your urgency. Since your family is there, you can consider the transfer now itself which may also take a month.
