2nd time 221g for my H1b and 3rd time 221g for my wife H4 stamping in last 4 years

Backgroud

  • Lived 9+ years in US from 2003 to 2012
  • Did my MS in US
  • Been in h1b for last 6+ years
  • Have a 2 years old daughter who was born in US
  • Worked in AT&T, Microsoft, NetApp...
  • Went for 4 stampings so far
  • My wife's first h4 stamping in 2007 took 6 months to get cleared and went to interview twice
  • my 3rd stamping took 48 days

we need to be very patient during this torrid time. keep praying. Its a pity if they are unable to process even after a year. if we look at the pdf file posted on the chennai consulate website, we can see that around a year mark there is a drastic decrease in pending cases. So there is hope.....

sometimes I feel like throwing my laptop away when i check my status, i guess that is not the solution, they are really playing with us .....so show them ur attitude if they are not going to give visa give them a middle finger and go to gulf countries we have better opportunities there as well ....

I totally agree with Nahid here. If we are good in one country then we must be good in any other place as well. I am taking training in the field of my liking and trying to become a better resource to the companies. There is no point in just waiting for it to happen. This might actually make us more strong and more skilled....
