Calling all Toronto 221Gs

Recommended Posts

@Cukegene I know you ,,muppala, me ,bi2013 are the only guys waiting from october, all of us in first and second week of october not sure whats happening? yuu think shut down effected our cases? Hope this ends soon 70+ days and this does not end not sure what options we have!

 

Yes; it sucks man. I know guys with yellow slip are getting cases solved in 50-60 days window. But our cases are already beyond 70+ days. I do not know what to say ...just wait and watch I guess..

You should be close. Green slip cases are first to get resolved. Since you already have 3 updates; you should be getting clearance sooner than later.

Returned me with Yellow slip (admin processing) and passport back.

This is my 2nd H1 Stamping though.

Any idea about this case? And approx time?

Thanks in advance
