Chances of getting 221g 2nd time

Recommended Posts

Hello guys

I am planning for my first H1 Stamping (F1 to H1).

In India when I went for F1 visa I got 221g which took around 2 months to get clear. Now I am planning to visit Ottawa to get my H1 stamping, very scared because had very bad experience last time.

So I want to know what are the chances of getting 221g again? Do they document somewhere that the guy already had 221g before so need for any admin processing.??

BTW I am a full time employee and have a common Muslim name.

Please suggest .....

I have pretty solid good history with US visas and went for h1b stamping and got admin processing for background check for common Muslim name and Arab country. It was cleared in 3 weeks. Don't count on slim chances of getting 221g. You have high possibility of getting it even if its your second time. They have to do it Everytime you apply for a new visa.
