Recommended Posts

@vishal2011: This is a response most of us have been getting from VFS and is most likely a standard one. The processing time is totally unknown.

Hi All,

I'm another victim of the 221(g) . Here's my case :

EC Model

Visa Interview Date : 01/11/2012

221g Green Slip (no Passport)

Docs Requested : Petition related (i797/I129/LCA) and Employer related

Docs Submitted via VFS dropbox : 01/17/2012

Do we get any acknowledgement via email from the VFS/Consulate if the docs have been received @ the consulate or would calling up the VFS help?

@221g@jan11 - There is no such thing as acknowledgement. just that if you contact vfs they will tell u the satus of ur case and in most of the cases its a standard reply 'administrative processing'

Hi All,

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.

Finally today my wife got a call from VFS to attend interview again. Its scheduled for friday this week. They asked her to get all the document required for Visa Interview.

Does anyone had a similar experience? I never heard any case where there were 2 interviews. Any information in this regard will help.

Please reply ASAP with your suggestions/comments. Thanks in advance.

Hopefully my wife get visa this time. praying god.

vijaisekar - Thanks for your reply and advise. Is there a possibility of getting another 221g? Is there a post where I can read about ppl who had 2 interviews?

If giving another 221g was their intention then they wouldn't even need to call for int again

Earlier I used to get a reply from VFS saying that my visa is in "administrative processing" but now I'm getting below email. why is that? did the consulate stop replying to VFS?

Hi Vijai,

This is Madhavi.

Interview Date: Nov 21 2011

Response: No slips and took Documents and Passport(VO said they need to verify)

Passport returned with 221(g )on Jan 31 2012

Help me in understanding what are the documents that I need to send. Do I need to send only the tick marks or all the documents listed in the slip that I got. They dint tick anything for me. I am confused. Please help me in understanding.

Thanks in Advance for your help.

@vijaisekar: What are the chance to get the refusal as a statement "your employer is unable to provide you employment" if your company is E-verified by USICS and BBB accredited which is used for the accredited in US (http://www.bbb.org/us/bbb-faqs/)

It does't matter. As long as the company is in good standing and that they will be able to pay you, all shd b good normally. Having said that nowadays its turning out to be pure luck
