Recommended Posts

Hi Got email today around 10 am to submit the passport.

I think it takes 14-19 business days to process 221G. 

 

Congratulations you got through. What is exact text in email? Can we submit and pick passport at consulate?

@OttawaH-1B there are still no update on CEAC website. its still showing Admin Processing.

@tomarmk It says we finished admin processing on your case and ready to process your visa. Please submit the passport.

Yes you can submit the passport irectly at consulate but pick up I am not sure. Ask in consulate office when you go for passport submission.

Call consulate. I should not take more than 2-3days. 

14th business day still counting... for email to submit passport. 

I hope Tillerson firing does not delay process.

@tomarmk Per the trend, you should hopefully get an email to submit passport either tomorrow or on Friday. 

I hope so. I will keep it posted.

This is very frustrating. No transparency in the process. No service level agreement among departments. I hope some day somebody will think about it. Why all these checks at visa time? why not at petition time?

@tomarmk Yes, it is very frustrating to not know the actual status behind the so called "Admin Processing". Did you try contacting embassy?

I just sent an email couple of times with same response that "your case is under review blah blah blah". What number did you call for NIV section?

@tomarmkPhone (for nonimmigrant visa inquiries only):  
(603) 334-0888. Customer Service Representatives can speak with you Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 midnight EST, excluding holidays. Not very useful though!
