Administrative processing ...even after H1 approval

Recommended Posts

Hi All 

 

I had my interview for my H1B stamping in Ottawa  on Dec 3 .

VO did not ask much questions , in the end he said he is approving my H1B stamping.

He also said I would be receiving my passport in 3 business days .

 

on Dec 6 , I checked my status on https://ceac.state.gov/ceac/

it shows as Administrative processing . 

 

I have couple of my friends here whose visa has been approved at the same time , their status shows as Issued .

 

Is anybody facing the same problem ?

VO did not tell me any problem with the PIMS 

 

Regards

Under Admin Processing, if US Consulate needs more documents, they will contact you. If it's PIMS related, they would wait to get your case reflected in PIMS. Either way, you would know what's happening soon.

My H1B extension is approved Jan 2013 - will i have PIMS Issue?

 

My friends H1B Extension is approved Aug 2013 - Will he have PIMS Issue?

 

Correct me if am wrong ,i was reading in forums that PIMS issue will happen only if our H1B is recently approved? is it true

My wife has the same issue her H1B visa was approved by VO on 29th Nov. No passport yet. CEAS site just shows ready and last update is still 29th. But when we called DOS visa specialist she says its Admin Processing.

 

How can we tell its PIMS or not?

Is there a way to talk to VO or someone from Visa office?

Hi All

  I am in the same boat, Dec 3 8:30 am interview. I was told 3-5 days. Couldn't find any place where it says that the first Friday of every month is a holiday, so hopefully Mon or Tue should bring good news

That information is wrong .Canada consulate is not closed on the first Friday of the month...There are some US consulates in Africa which are closed on the first Friday of the month but not the ones in Canada.

 

Anyone from Toronto still waiting for their passports ?

i even went to the loomis to check if there was an error, or if my passport had been delivered just in case.

Sanjay did he send mails or any kind of follow up ? Did he go  to the consulate to complain about this or just played the waiting game ?
