221G GREEN CHENNAI - SEPTEMBER / OCT TRACKER

Recommended Posts

Its been more than 2 months now and I have no update.

VI Date: 19th Oct 2011

Received 221g green with No Documents asked for submission, No Passport

Hence, I did not submit any documents to the consolate.

Now its been 10 weeks, they havent asked for anything and there is no movement at all. No status update.

What can be done? Can we mail anyone for case status?

Atleast if they would have requested documents and I had submitted, there would be some action leading to peace of mind. Now, I feel like they have forgotten the case itself...

I got the following response from VFS yesterday. I am working on EVC model.

As per the US Consulate, your case has been returned to the Kentucky Consular Center in the United States. You may contact the USCIS office for further information. Please consider this case closed at Chennai Consulate office

My employer's attorney told the chances for reaffirmation are very low. As some of other posted it will take at least 6 months to get either refusal or reaffirmation.

Guys I have question, if my current employer has an in house project and if he applies for a new petition with FT position. What are the chances of getting Visa as my previous petition has been rejected with same employer working on EVC model ?

I received the mail. They returned all papers I submitted and a green 221g asking payslips for current employer, ds160, visa docs, passport. Going to submit them tomorrow. Any idea how long will the reply take ? I am concerned as they asked for payslips ANC it may longer to process ..

Also - my petition I'd approved in march, I joined my current employerr in may. Can I submit the payslips of previous employer as well though they didn't ask ? Any help is much appreciated.

Hi,

Me and my wife went for H1B stamping on 23/11/2011. I got my visa (Full time employee- Extension) without any hassle, but my wife(EVC- F1 to H1B) got 221g-Green requesting additional documents. We submitted all the required documents on the same day and waiting to hear from US consulate thereafter. We contacted both vfs Chennai and DOS, but dint help much. After going through this post looks like the only option is to wait. Please let me know if otherwise.

Thanks in advance.

I too received 221g green which asked for passport...it was checked in the back. I submitted my 221g with all the docs to VFS bangalore on 27th december. I still havent received any response yet.

I have few questions:-

1> For people who submitted 221g with their passport, is there a way to track it online?

2> Does submitting passport mean faster processing times for 221g?

Hey vishal, I havent received any response yet. Contacted VFS helpline...but they give a generic answer that your passport is with the consulate. I called again today and guy on the phone told me to email VFS. But I am expecting a generic answer again as other people have received.

At this point, there is nothing we can do. All we can do is cross our fingers and hope for the best. The duration might be 3-6 weeks from what I have been reading here. Mine has been close to 2 weeks now. Hoping atleast I get some response by mid-jan. Will update you if I receive any response. My email id is deepu3@gmail.com if you want to contact me.

guys any more updates here?....all the recent updates by people here havent been good. Crossing my fingers. From next time onwards I am planning to go to canada or mexico where its much quicker. Even people with 221g are getting stamping within a week in canada/mexico. Dont want to get stuck in india again for months again.
