Toronto consulate's yellow sheet 221 g processing times are more or less 48-56 days! If you in TAL list then wish you a good luck...! Only one place could expedite your case is Washington DC!. Any senator's office could not do anything for you..! They could sympathize about your case. One thing everyone could do, to call FBI office to take initiative. First step starts there. I called every other office yesterday and learned those things .... You could google the numbers and start calling them.

I have not read about this before. Could you explain who you called, and what you asked them for everyone's benefit?

If someone is from Science background then call or emails to VISAS@nas.edu and 202-334-2807. They are really good. It could help you.

 

The contact information of the FBI and the DOS: FBI: Tel: 1-202-324-3625

 

State Department directly by phone: +1-202-485-7600 (although this is an useless number people are rude and useless)

I really don't know if that number is accurate across all cases.

It will be 56 days for me tomorrow and I have't heard from them.

Congratulations to you though!!

Exiled-by-221G was there any change in ceac update? 

 

 

The only update on CEAC was on Oct 17th. This was also the case with others on the thread.... I remember kalyan_chakri31 who had his interview the same day as me has his CEAC status updated on Oct 17.

No, I submitted my passport on 19th and they told me that you can collect from loomies. I requested if they could end my pain. The lady was kind (as I was waiting for 50 days) enough and let me allow to collect it from consulate on Friday from 3-4 pm (22 November). You can not get it on same day, for sure. 2-3 days at least. Good luck...
