Calling all Toronto 221Gs

Recommended Posts

 update: my client was contacted today.

Guys, After my interview on Oct 9th there are no emails or documents requested. I am looking into this forum and noticed all of them received some information usually in 3 or 4 days asking for documents. Is my case normal, should i just wait or need to send an email to consulate. Please advice.

Visa Interview - 25th September 2013.

Current Visa Status: F1/OPT.

221G Yellow - Necessary administrative processing. Passport was returned after a stamp saying cancelled without prejudice on the original visa.

Status updated on CEAC site on 16th October, but no change in language. Still waiting for news on my case.

Received a phone call from consulate this morning and also an email instructions to collect the passport between 3:00 pm -4:00pm. I got my passport back with stamping. Hope all your cases will be resolved soon.

Actually, I am still on OPT. Just graduated. Was going to join job in Sept, got delayed to October. Now the 90 unemployment days that one has per year on OPT are getting used up...that's why I'm a little tensed about the whole administrative processing thing.

It's a chicken and egg problem - I have an offer and am willing to join and my company is willing to employ me. But the consulate wont give me a visa and then if the 90 days expire they'll say but you were unemployed for 90 days...

Now, whose fault is that ?? :)

It was my bad luck on Oct 15th that I was interviewed by the famous Afro-American VO @Toronto, who I saw  was giving the most 221g s'.

 

I also got 221g Green, asking me to submit more documents by email regarding my exact nature of study, my CV etc.

 

I did my MS in CS from US university and after my graduation was working for a US based employer on OPT.

 

Anybody stuck in the same boat or were in this position and had an update? Please respond.

 

Thanks.

I had chosen the Non-thesis plan for my Master's and I think the VO assumed that every Master's student in CS must have Thesis as a mandatory part of the degree so handed me the 221g in order to verify my exact course structure, also told me to submit my CV/Resume & despite of me telling him that I didn't have to do thesis, it was mentioned on the 221g to submit  "research & list of publications & source of funding" :o

 

None the less I saw him interviewing a guy just 2 interviews prior to mine and he is in the same boat as me (Non-thesis plan.. MS in CS from US University.. 221g.. etc) Unfortunately, I couldn't catch hold him later.

 

It was not a PIMS update issue as I saw "PIMS OK" written on my DS 160
