Me: S***

VO: Do you have client letter?

Me: Yes sir.I do. Here you go..Checked it, very quick glance at it and asked?

VO: who is this XXX company?

Me: Prime vendor, usually clients will take candidates from outside only through the preferred vendors

VO: Have you ever been arrested?

Me: No

VO: Are you sure about it? Back in 2008?

Me: Yes sir.I accepted the truth. It was cleared and closed in 2008.

VO: You should mention that in DS160. From the next time you should mention in DS160 and specify details

Me: Sure sir. Actually, the case was cleared, so I didnt mention it. Explained what happened and details what I have told to judge

I also told that Judge asked me to attend a class, I went to the class and it was closed.

VO: So you attended the class? which class?

Me: XXX class

VO: okay and gave all my documents back

VO: Your petition was not updated in PIMS.. typed something for a minute and a long pause

Me: Is my Visa approved?

VO: We need to verify couple of things, we will reach out to you either by phone or email if we need any information from you and gave a paper on how to track my passport

Me: Thank you sir. Have a good day.

What I observed was when visa officer taking my documents, he wrote

221g

PIMs

on the DS160 confirmation page printout and placed passport, i797, DS160 confirmation page together to a rubber band

I am confused now, whether my visa is approved or not. I dont know. Till today (July13th)its showing "administrative processing" in ceac website

Did u ever send an  email to PIMS@state.gov or the embasys ur attending regarding ur H1 B notice. PIMS update is an internal process but if u send an email and take the printout it may be usefull .

 

I am not telling by our email they will update teh PIMS but that is what we can do from our side .
