As your application has been refused under section 221(G)

Recommended Posts


My cousin went to India for stamping and received 221(g) on dec 9th. On dec 21, he received a call to send the scanned documents for further processing. Today he received an email from embassy with below information.


"Dear Applicant,

This is in regards to your visa application. Please submit your passport at VAC or VFS office at the earliest for further processing of your case.

As your application has been refused under 221(g) of the immigration and nationality act (INA) and you are requested to submit your passport, please log in to UStraveldocs, download the 221(g) courier submission letter and submit it along with the 221(g) refusal sheet and a copy of this email at any one of the 5 VAC or 6 VFS offices."


What does this mean?

does this mean the visa has been refused now? or when went to visa for the first time, he was given a 221(g) and they are referring to that in the second para? does any one had same scenario?

Please help,

He needs to submit passport so that they can stamp the visa. His 221G is cleared. That is why they are asking for his passport. Your cousin needs to submit passport, 221G courier submission letter along with 221G refusal sheet and also the email communication print out.
