2011 September & October 221g blue hyderabad Updates

Recommended Posts

My case is visible on site again with the below message

"Your case is currently undergoing processing. Please continue to check this website for updates on the status of your case. Any new information received will be posted to the website."

Hi rasheed1011,

you might get the passport in 1 or 2 days. For me happen same thing, was showing "Please submit your passport thru VFS" after submitting the passport up 10-12 days, suddenly the status changed to "Your case is currently undergoing processing. Please continue to check this website for updates on the status of your case. Any new information received will be posted to the website" and i got the visa next day.

@221GMAY18

sorry to hear abour your case. Mine is something similar to your case.But I didn't receive any 221g on interview date but VO acknowledged my visa is approved and VO retained my I-797,I-129,LCA,Client letters,paystubs and told me expected to receive our PP's within 2-3 days. But we haven't received our passports since 09/30/2011. But on 10/18/2011 I received an email from US consulate that case went into admin processing with case# upon enquiring about my passport status with VFS

Today i got my passport back without visa. :( :(

This was my 2nd Visa Interview after first one was refused with 221g Yellow

1st Visa Interview:

Interview Date : May 18th 2011

Hyderabad Consulate

221 G Yellow

EVC Model

Standard Refusal Letter: June 15 2011

2st Visa Interview:

Interview Date : Sept 29th 2011

Hyderabad Consulate

EVC Model

221 G Blue - Administrative Processing . Passport , Client Letter and Letter to USCIS kept with Visa Officer. He mentioned that he has to verify whether my employer has informed USCIS about the Vendor in between

Passport Received Without Visa: Dec 1 2011

I think my case will be refused as before. Not sure what to do now.......

I have been working from India for the same client for last 6 months and not sure how long the client will wait

I went to pick up my passport today and saw lot of people coming to pick up the passport and most of them got the visa but i think its all about luck :( :( :(

Was your refusal because you could not prove:

1. Employer-Employee relationship ? [many fake stories still couldn't prove it]

2. Client Letter just saying possible extensions ?

@nbendi- sent email with my cell#

@dream16 - Not sure why was it rejected. I showed VO all the documents to prove E-E relationship like status reports, my employer visiting client office receipts and email conversations etc. He was kind of satisfied but the only question he had was about the Letter to USCIS didnt mention the vendors name....he asked my did my employer inform USCIS that i have a vendor in between which he did because i applied my H1 only with Vendor docs as i got my client letter very late.

Client letter clearly mentioned the start date and end date which for another 2 yrs so i think client letter might not be the reason for refusal.

Not sure what to do next .. :( :(

My employer doesnt want to file for H1 again as VO might again give 221g so kind of confused what to do

hmm that's a very sad situation.

So you do mention an interesting thing here about showing receipts of your employer visiting client site..i wonder how you were able to do that [if it's the other way round: when in evc world, emp basically sleeps and makes money on u & hardly even knows the client name].

Strange, your letter to USCIS did not mention vendor name? Then how did you get your h1b approved ?

Or are you saying that VO now is asking that they want your company to send a letter saying: that these are the list of vendors we work with ?

Please clarify so that i can help you and get you back in US asap.

@dream16:

they were actually my employers visitor passes kind of issued every week wen he visited my client place.... my employer kinda comes under the category who takes care of his employees a bit more than others :)

Its not mandatory to mention Vendors name in Letter To USCIS so not having vendor name in Letter To USCIS doesnt make your H1 B petition invalid or a reason to reject ... VO just wanted to know whether my employer has informed USCIS that i have a vendor in between my employer and client....

@ Dream16 - In your post dated Dec 13th under this same topic as a response to 221gmay18 - You said " 2. Client Letter just saying possible extensions ? "

Please can you explain the problem you see with the client letter. I understand the Employer-employee challenges you refer to in your first point there. But don't follow the 2nd point too well.

Thanks ahead.

@diwakard

Were you given any questionnaire to answer after your interview? or this is the first time they asked to submit documents. Check your EAC# on USCIS website and verify if your petition is under "post decision" if your petition is send back to USCIS for review the status would show "post Decision".

@nycwork I was not given any questionnaire after my interview. This is the first time in 4.5 months that they have contacted me. I checked the USCIS website for the EAC#, its at the Post Decision Activity. But its been at that since the day my petition got approved in July last year.

I had also called DOS 2 weeks back, and they had replied to me saying that my case is still pending with the Hyderabad Consulate. Not sure about whats going on. Planning to submit the documents as soon as I can.

Any ideas on how long it might take after submission of docs?
