hi phani. My wife went to toronto for F1 visa processing recently and was given yellow 221G. But she had a valid H4 visa so we asked the consular if they would give us our passport back and they gave it back. So she came back to USA and waited while admin processing was being done. So if you have a valid visa then email the consulate. Even otherwise email them and let them know that your UK visa is expiring on 16th, so ask them to hurry up. Admin processing time varies from case to case, also the color of your form indicates the severity .... not sure about white. I have seen some cases take 2-4 weeks for us it took 6 weeks. Hope this helps.

Hi,

 

I attended my H1B visa renewal interview (full-time employee since last 5 years) on August 28th 2014, and was given 221g , with no specific reason (but i guess its TAL) and was asked to respond to email. I received email on the same day , asking for filling out questionnaire , full cvs, research publications, itinerary, degree certificates and transcripts. Since then i was weekly sending email to consulate (at 

'support@ustraveldocs.com') and was getting standard reply saying that "..your case is under administrative processing" . As of today, this is my 6th week in waiting in frustration. Also, this week , I stopped receiving any response from the consulate , i usually get response back within 24 hours, but it has been 4 days since i sent an email asking for the status, but no response.

 

 

Does anyone think, it is a bad sign or indication that consulate gave up on my case ? Please share your insights as it is really frustrating to wait without any indication of progress status .

 

Thanks

Sai
