@VisaBlues:I have not checked with employer whether verifications happned or not . I am in Internal project model. This is the latest update I have from infouschennai

As per the US Consulate, your application is pending under Section 221(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) for mandatory administrative processing. Please note that there is no definite time for administrative processing. When administrative processing is required, the timing will vary depending on circumstances of each case. Be assured that the U.S. Consulate will contact you if the administrative processing is complete or if they require additional information.

I had my interveiw at chennai consulate on 04 - Sep -2012. Mine is a small desi employer from US. EC model.. I was interviewed by VO for 3 minutes. Then I was taken to another counter where I was questioned for around an hour. Right from my education qualtification, experience, job with US employer etc.. all of it were recorded. Then I was given a SWORN statement and I had to sign it with all the details I told them. Then I was given 221G green form with no additional documents requested, Since all documents were in there already. Passport was returned back.. Just hoping for the best. Did anybody gone through similar experience? My case is a genuine case where I have attended interview around Jan 2012 and my US employer selected me and rolled out the offer.

Hi All,

I had attended my H1b New on August 16th. I am working for a US based leading MNC. The VISA officer asked me two or three questions. He looked the system monitor and he went somewhere with my passport and returned after two minutes.

Then he just told me that "He need to ask few more questions. Just stay relax and you will be called in another counter for few questions". He gave me the passport along with the 221G PINK SLIP and asked me to wait for my counter in the display.

Then I went to another counter. There was an Indian Lady. She asked me few questions like

1. whether I had visited any other countries before.

2. Is your passport has been renewed?

3. Are you having any brother and where he is staying?

Then she measured my height. Finally SHE COLLECTED MY PASSPORT and INFORMED ME LIKE THE PASSPORT WILL BE ISSUED IN 8 - 12 WEEKS. She havent asked me any other docs other than passport.

Common Muslim Name : No

I just want to know is there any possiblity to get my visa stampted and if so how long it would take. Any suggestions were really appreciated!!!

My story:

Chennai

Interveiw date: sep 2nd 2011 Green form for employer related docs.

Docs submitted: sep 20th 2011.

Docs returned : 16th feb 2012 (after )19 weeks with a blue form

I got all my documents back with a blue form requesting for

"A letter from the client company sponsering the project and a copy of the contract between the us-based petitioner and the client company, stating the timing, terms and agreement for your project"

My last client letter ends on march 31st 2012 this might be the reason for a new one.

Submitted after 90 days with a new client letter( as old client is no more) .

I got all my documetns back in 2 days and asking again for cleint letter.

This time submited the original client letter on the client letter head.

After 4 months I Got a call from the consulate to attend the interview again.

Will update you with interview once done.

Mine is in house project. Employer around 200+.
