@sai1685, Thank for posting your experience. Hope you get your PP back soon. I have one doubt.

Can you let me know if the Job Title you have mentioned to her, job title mentioned on your H1B petition, and job title on your Client/Employer letter are the same?

Dont worry, I am sure your case will be clear in 3-4 weeks depends on the Q, The consulate won't do any thing after this kind of Admin Review.

They used to send to DOS, which will turn to Third Party verification. Your client will get call & email to your client for your contract verification.

Issuing 221g/ not Issuing both fall into Admin Review which to make sure the Fraud Prevention process of  the client letter signatures & contract versification by third parties under DOS. They are collecting the contract information by phone call & email confirmations from client HR/Immigration/Legal Departments.

Last week two ours of the similar cases cleared & visas issued in Vancouver. You can read my posts as well.

Thank you,

@ Kishan - Did consulate contact your client with questions? If so, Did they call him or email him ? What did they ask?

Do you think it will be of any help to email to consulate asking for my status?
