@VisaBlues, I have just gone through your case. all I can say is to wait..

Here are some more details of my case, hope it helps

Class H1 Extension - New Employer (My intial extension petition with my employer got denied eventhough I was working and my i-94 also got expired in the process. My old employer reapplied and then I got an RFE on that. It was 3 weeks past my I-94 expiration, and I had to requrn back. Filed a new petion with a new employer and then got the H1 approved, went for visa and had an admin processing on it. Now you know my status, just submited my passport along with other documents.

It was quite an ordeal, but the only good thing was my client did allow me to work remotely during this process. I am hoping to have the visa isssued now without any new problems..

As mentioned in my other posts, My interview was not a smooth ride(unlike my first F1 and F1 to H1 interviews, lasted few seconds literally) The first Visa officer, took all the details and asked me if I had a vendor in between, and if the vendor was mentioned in the letter to USCIS. My employer did mention it in the petition. He made me sit and said he is going to call me. But later another indian lady called me to a different counter and took all my details like, how long I was working in the US, at the client location, no if ppl working from my company at the client location and so on. Later she called up another VO and he started grilling me by asking the same questions (Right to control of work and no of ppl working at the client location) for about 10 times. other questions included, what tools u used, what is your work? How do your report to your employer, How are the processes at the client location, does your manager from the employer work at the client site?

I tired including all the details I could recollect off. Let me know if you need any additional information.

all the best!!
