H1B Stamping Vancouver 24June2016 - Administrative Processing

Recommended Posts

I had H1B visa extension interview in Vancouver on 24 June 2016, still in Administrative processing. Straight forward case with no issues- all documents are clear (3 years ago I had my interview at this same place and got the passport back in 2 days without any issues. I was with the same employer last time as well - EVC)
 
This time the interviewer gave me a letter - "DS-160 is incomplete; make necessary changes & submit". He did not check any of my documents after asking me if I am with same employer (checked  the basic documents) and told me to wait for their e-mail.
This is the letter he gave me, can someone please let me know if this is 221g as his does not have a case number?

He took my passport, I797 and asked how many days it took last time to get the passport back. I told two and he told it will take more time now as they will have to do Administrative processing.
He did not allow me to ask any more questions and kept on repeating to "wait for their e-mail".
 
There is another guy working for my employer with exactly same case as mine, he was asked for client letter and was put in administrative processing by the same guy who interviewed me.
 
Please let me know your views.

I went to Vancouver in Sep 2015 for H1 Extension Stamping, Officer told me " I am unable to pull your application on my system" gave me both green and yellow slips".

 

I got my visa after 5 weeks. Please be patient and send an email to consulate after 2 days.

Did you check your DS 160 form? As per this letter it says some information is missing in your form.

You can also retrieve your DS 160 form from your previous stamping. Just compare them side by side to check what is missing.

Thank you pradeep and JP. I compared my DS 160 form and I did not find anything missing. Plus I did not receive any reply for the emails I sent to consulate.

 

Is it possible to go to US when my application is in Admin Processing  by taking my passport from them? and come back after the status changes ?

It is in administrative processing from right after the interview. Just the "status updated date" changed from 24th June to 28th June. The Consulate replied to my email saying application is under review and no need to send any documents. Did anyone get a 221g yellow form similar to this one ?  https://s31.postimg.org/smv17k9kr/letter.jpg
