H1B refusal and gave me 221g

Recommended Posts

I got arrested on 05/17/19 for Domestic Battery and court date on 07/15/19. But unfortunately for emergency I traveled to India so that my attorney attended the court and told me that no charges. I went to visa first time on Aug 2nd without any documents related my case except Bail bond sheet which has a court date on it 07/15/19, attorney didn’t provide any documents. I took email conversation print out between me and attorney that has no charges information. But VO didn’t accept it and refused my visa and told me that get Police report and court documents. Second time I went on 08/13/19 with Police report, court slip and attorney draft copy but still they didn’t satisfy and gave me 221g blue slip has AP only ticked on it. How long will take for AP? Any suggestions, thank you.

No particular time line. I wished you could have taken all the necessary documents. Emals are easily forged in this technology age and to be frank the documents which you submitted are not so sound proof US govt cannot give you visa based on those documents. So now they decided to do background check on their own. Beside waiting and reply to their questions you cannot do anything.

Why did you go for visa stamping without proper documents. You could have traveled as it is an emergency and waited for the official docs before going for stamping. All you can do is wait.

No CO with more than ten minutes of experience should ever accept any letter, fax, email, etc from some attorney...such documents have absolutely zero legal authority...none... your case has now been placed under a microscope and can take weeks or months to resolve...and no one can change that process...no letter from some congressman can force the AP process to accelerate .... no phone calls from your attorney will have any effect....

@KGC I am on the same boat as you are. I attended the interview on June 18th and they gave me 221g and kept the passport with them. After a month they returned my passport and issued another 221g requesting psychological evaluation. I submitted the medical report in couple of days and still waiting for my application to be processed. I wish they asked for the report on d day of d interview itself. So, I am not sure if you can submit d report before they request for it. Just my 2 cents.
