H1B Visa approved but didnt receive the passport from Hyderabad consulate.

Recommended Posts

My PA was on Aug 22nd -2011 at Hyderabad and it was approved. VO , told me , that I will get my passport in 3 to 5 business days but till now, I didnt receive it. Called couple of times the VFS helpline and dropped e-mail but they replied saying it is still with the consulate and is under processing.

Did anyone face this issue in Aug-2011? and if, how to proceed now?

Any direct consulate contact number , will be of great help?

I know of one person who went to New Delhi embassy for her interview in April of this year. They told her that her visa is approved and kept the passport. However, she got her passport with visa stamped only in the last week of August. So hope for the best - in your case you will definitely get visa but the question is when.

I work FullTime.. The status says "Your Passport is under process at U.S Embassy/Consulate."

Is this what is shown for 221G as well?

I called VFS 4 times today and the last time i called that guy said He has seen cases that take 6 months even if the candidate works fulltime with a a US employer..!!!

If you dont receive your passport after 1 week of the expected day of its receipt, then all the VFS & write an email to the consulate about it. There have been cases, where at the time of interview the visa was approved & applicant was told that you will rcv ppt within xyz days but on inquiry they got a 221g.

I attended for H1B renewal from Hyderabad consulate on Oct 7th. My Visa interview was straight forward. VO asked my studies, work history, my salary and current job responsiblities. He took my passport and said my Visa is approved and I should get my passport in 4 days. Its been almost 4 weeks and I am still waiting for my passport.

Tried calling and sending an email to VFS. I got a response got from the Hyd consulate that all non immigrant visas have to undergo processing and it will take time. They didn't give me any estimate on how soon this processing will be done. I don't have any case number and I don't think it is a case of admin processing.

I am a FTE working in the manufacturing sector. I was always a full time direct employee and this is my 3rd time H1B visa stamping.

Any advice from the members and others facing the same would help me.

Thanks
