These days ever single H1-B who left the US port and comes to India for stamping or renewal are getting Administrative Processing. On research, it appears that this is due to Donald Trump's remarks over H1-B Visa holders. People in US Embassy just hold the flag up to Administrative Processing so that they can do intense scrutiny.

This is really time taking process and would definitely frustrate the person who stuck into it. But no one can do anything except waiting patiently. 

Good part is that, most people get successful through this process after certain waiting time.

I can share this now based on my experience and studying different cases on various forums plus cases with people within my circle.

This is a pathetic example of the immigration system in the USA. An application approved by USCIS is not honored at all by DHS.

Worse, the Visa approved by DHS is not honored by officers at the port of entry. They should do all the verification first (no matter how long it takes, including site visits and all other "background" checks) and only then put the H-1b seal directly on the passport with certainty.

Unfortunately, I can only vent about it. No one in the department of state cares.
