Any 221g Cases Toronto in 2014

Recommended Posts

DKHS,

 

I don't remember the guy's name. He was wearing a suit with a tie and a clean bald head guy.

 

No updates. My attorneys emailed all the H1B petition documentation that was submitted to USCIS to the consulate on Monday. I got a response on Tuesday saying still processing. Planning to go visit the consulate sometime next week.

 

Would you like to meet next week at the consulate with me? Please let me know. Do you have any updates?

By the way, did the consular asked for the H1B petition document? Otherwise, why did you guys emailed the petition.

DKHS,

 

Tuesday at 1PM near the consulate sounds good to me.

 

The officer didn't ask me for my petition. But, reading other forum posts, I decided to prove the confidence level of my case. There is no loss what so ever. So, I asked my attorney to email the consulate. They did. Now everyone knows who is who and there are no pending documents in my case of any sort. Rather than waiting for them to ask you documents, just go ahead and submit them. You never know how are they going to help.

 

The moderators are updating the posts slowly. But, anyways, please stay in touch with this post. I will let you know on Monday evening on how to recognize each other at the consulate when we meet on Tuesday.

Dear DKHS,

 

I will be wearing a black jeans and black jacket with brown leather shoes.

 

There is a small bus-stop kind of a thing right in front of the consulate's entrance where some sort of construction is taking place. I will be there.

 

See you tomorrow.

Stuck for 20 days as of now.

Feb 6th  Thu : Interview  - (gave back the passport and said it may take more than three weeks to process, Did not give any slip. VO was young American in 30's.He only had my I-797)

Feb 11th Tue : Got a mail from FPU requesting to submit H1 petition related documents

Feb 12th Wed: Replied to the above mail with all the documents attached in zip folder.

Feb 17th Mon: sent a mail to FPU asking for acknowledgment that they had received the documents.

Feb 18th Tue: sent a mail again for acknowledgment 

Feb  20th Thu: Got a mail that they dint receive the documents so I submitted the documents again but this time in person

CEAC status/date has never changed since the interview.

No update since then. I think when sending the documents through email, we should not zip them. Maybe zipped folders are not received due to security reasons.

 

I hope there is some news this week!

@toronto_waiter & @DKHS 

Has ur CEAC status/date change? if yes what r the dates when it changed?

 

 

I got passport with visa today. Total wait period: exact 3 weeks. FYI: I know torontowaiter also got his clearance on Feb 25th, 2014

 

Here is the timeline for me.

 

Interview date: 02/05/14. 

Asked general question, what I do? Where ? Salary? Married? how long? Told me that he is recommending for visa but there is necessary administrative processing which would take about 3 to 4 weeks. Asked me to submit resume and also description about the conference or business.

I did n't find any changes on CEAC website, went to ask for a status on 02/25/14 at consulate window. She asked me to submit a passport

 

Status update; 02/25/14

Issued: 02/27/14.,,, picked up the passport

 

MY ADVICE FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE WAITING FOR THE CONSULATE CLEARNACE EMAIL, JUST GO AND ASK FOR YOUR STATUS AT THE CONSULATE WINDOW. In my case, I didn't receive any clearance email. 

 

I hope to all of them, who are waiting for their clearance, would get soon.

 
I know TorontoWaiter also got a clearance email on 02/25/14.

Hi @harish41567, @ Toronto2014

My case is very similar to yours. Details below - 

 

March 10, Mon:Interview  - 

The VO gave back the passport and said it may take up to a month to process my case as he wanted to do some more checks on my employer. Did not give any slip. VO was young American in 30's.He only had my I-797.

 

Please let me know if you guys have any new update

Hi Everyone 

 

I am stuck in Toronto while my visa application is undergoing AP and it may take up to a month or more. I had a single entry Canadian Tourist visa. 

Now I am planning to go to India while the AP is going on in Toronto and come back to Canada when the H1B visa is issued/stamped. So I will have to get a new Canadian Tourist visa from India to come back once I get the confirmation email. 

 

- 1) How difficult is it to get a Canadian Tourist visa from India? (provided I have the visa issued confirmation email). It takes around 2 weeks to get the Canadian Tourist visa from India.

 

- 2) Within how many days of the confirmation email do I have to submit my passport at the US Consulate Toronto? (2weeks/30days/60days/90days). 

 

-3) What happens if I am not able to submit my passport in the requested time frame (2weeks/30days etc.)? Does my status change to AP again? Do I have to apply all over again?

 

Any thoughts/opinions/suggestions are welcomed.

Did they ask you for the passport picture? Or they were ok with the one on DS160? Please respond.
