221g Green Slip Toronto - No document asked

Recommended Posts

I went for H1B- VISA interview at Toronto, Canada. Visa Officer didn't asked for any documents from me like client letter or company letter except approved i797 after giving all the answer he took my petition and returned the passport with green color slip by selecting an option where it says that your VISA application need additional admin processing and their is no action required from your side.

Now I am in confusion what will happen next and how long will it take?

Looks like the officer wanted to verify the petition. May be it is not showing up in their database. May be something else. Nobody here knows for sure.

How long will it take ? No body knows as it depends on the case and what is it that they need to verify. Usually most admin processings are cleared in a month on average.

Actually they asked me questions on my Green card i140 approvals and I said yes, Visa officer asked questions on my salary how long I am with my current employer and at last took my i797 and gave me the Green color paper with no documents required asked about me and my wife's qualifications about my Salary so I told them current salary what I was getting in close to what i had in Ds-160

I also faced 221G scenario in Vancouver Canada with wife and kid. Your interview looks pretty much straight forward and they want to check background. If feel you will get but little wait game. My profile has my email id. Please mail me with your number. I will call you with Whatsapp. I would like to speak with you.

@Vik_singhAs your petition was approved on Jan 2 and high chances would be updated info to consulates haven't received. I know everyone's case is unique and all is what we can assume. Hope you will get clear this hurdle soon! Good Luck!

Hello, 

I was given 221g green in Toronto. No documents asked from me or Company. VO said that I have come prepared and mentioned that admin processing is needed and will take couple of weeks and will let me know so that I can drop my passport for the stamping. 

He kept my resume and returned 797 and passport. 

Questions were straightforward and nothing complicated or any explanations asked.   Company is one among Big 4. 

Questions as below

1.which company,

2.Client(said multiple clients but I work from the company office which is a delivery center)

3.spouse company

4.MS in what and where 

Had multiple H1B stampings done in India before in Delhi,Chennai,Hyderabad. Was on F1 and on H1B for 12 years.  No 221g history until now. 

My H1b was approved on Jan 15 2019 through consular processing(Toronto) and I attended interview on Feb 13. 

Anyone stuck in Toronto on 221g, please let me know so that we can chat.

regards
