Hello All,

I had my interview on Jan-11-2012 and got a 221(g) stating that my case was being sent back for further review. I thought by this time the USCIS or atleast the KCC would have received my petition. But from my inquiries with the VFS I got to know that my petition is still lying at the chennai consulate even after 2 months of my interview. Really, I cannot understand why the consulate hold the petition with them for these many days instead of sending it to the KCC ?? I guess this is why 'cases being sent back to USCIS for further review' takes such a long time to get reaffirmed. Any thoughts on this ??

Updates on my case :

Just saw on USCIS web site:

What will be the next step and how much time it will take from now onwards?

Here is I can see :

Post Decision Activity

On March 2, 2012, a USCIS office received this case from the State Department with a request that we review it. We will notify you when we complete our review, or if we need something from you. If you move while this case is pending, please use our Change of Address online tool to update your case with your new address or call our customer service center at 1-800-375-5283.

Hi Friends,

Its been 2.5 months now but i havent received any refusal letter, so the reason for refusal is unknown to me yet.

Neither my attorney nor my company received the refusal letter too.

Now I am trying to file a new h1 with my vendor, so do i need to know the reason for refusal now?
