221g @ Ottawa Canada

Recommended Posts

@INRUSD, Luckily I have friend who lives near by, I am staying temporarily with him. However, I am thinking to fly down to India by the end of next week if nothing comes up. This is insane.

How can the Embassy not update applicants who are stuck here for almost 2-4 weeks, this is unfair. Time taken for interview - 20 seconds, waiting time to hear back - 2 to 4 weeks. Not done.

Frustrated man.

Congrats Praveen.

Did your client/employer receive any call from consulate office? Or did you send them any emails after you got your 221g? Mine is the same case EC model with 221g white. I have been waiting since Nov 14th.

@navving Did you get any update? Did your client or manager contacted?

withdrawing a case and AVR rule you need to check with your attorney, these are sensitive and need to have experts involvement.

AVR cannot be used if you went to stamping.

Good luck to all.
