221G GREEN CHENNAI - SEPTEMBER / OCT TRACKER

Recommended Posts

@221g_SEP9_2011- did u try calling the consulate and DOS? They should have some kind of update for u since u r already in 6th week after submitting the documents listed in 221g as the typical wait time to get some kind of response from the Chennai consulate once all the documents are submitted is 4-6 weeks. Try calling DOS and keep us updated and be optimistic

Hi guys,

I attended visa interview on Oct 4th at Chennai consulate and got 221g requesting for all petitioner documents. I submitted the docs on Oct 18th at VFS Hyderabad. I was wondering how long does it take for my case number to show up on case status report of Chennai consulate.

I don't know if it matters a lot but what I observed from this list is that most of the case statuses are issued prior to day 266(sep 24th). Lets hope for the best and wish good luck for all of us.

@h1sticky - After calling the 202 number i guess u should press 1 and 0 to talk to someone. Listen to the menu options carefully and press the number accordingly. Since u r already in 7th week u shd be receiving somekind of response soon. Hope for the best

@ssis - after 2-3 weeks start calling the consulate and DOS. Dont go by the case status number and all because normally it wont show up or is not updated on a regular basis. Good luck to u and lets all hope for the best and i am sure we all will get the visa stamping soon. Keep us updated

@h1sticky - Me too in the same boat... this is my 7th week of waiting.

admin. processing cases will be resolved within 60 business days

Technically speaking in your case you would have crossed only 20+ days. So dont fret. Let's be positive and hope for the best

@221G Green,

How is the admin processing different from others? I suppose the usual wait time is 4-6 weeks right? So why should it take 60 business days?

Hi chn_221g_green

I have a question for you. If you are a direct full time employee then how can they ask you for client letter. Does client letter have any meaning in case of direct full time employees.

Please let me know, are you working in a direct model or EC model.

Thanks,

My case details:

Interview date: May 15, 2011

Docs submitted: May 26

Second request for additional docs: June 5

Submitted: June 29

Rejected: OCtober 15, 2011 - even though rejection letter was dated July 29, 2011

They have made a decision in July and not informed the applicant of the decision until after 3 months. Cheap tricks by the Consulate..

My personal opinion is only 10% of EVC model are getting approved after 221g. Even then, they are making an early decision and not letting the applicant know.

Good luck to the rest of you..
