    221G Status Message from VFS

    Hello, I have appeared for my h1b visa interview in Jan 2012 at chennai consulate and handed over 221G green form. When i emailed vfs for my status update. Received following reply. As per the US Consulate, Your application is pending under Section 221(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) for administrative processing. Section 221(g) prohibits the issuance of a visa to an individual whose application is incomplete or inconclusive, or whose eligibility has not been firmly established. In this instance, post is attempting to independently verify certain information presented by you at the time of your interview. In the above reply "In this instance, post is attempting to independently verify certain information presented by you at the time of your interview" these lines looks new from my last status update replies from VFS. Does this mean the consulate is trying to contact my client/ vendor? Mine is an EVVC model. Did anyone received such status message from VFS? Thanks for your help.

    H4 Visa Interview without Cap-Gap I-20

    @pontevecchio I'm currently filling my H1 extension, which will be effective from 1st oct, 2012. Can my wife attend with h4 with extension petition and travel in aug with the existing petition? Or she should travel 10 days before my extention petition? Please help us out. Thanks for your Help!
  4. Hello, I received a mail from Chennai consulate on Apr 30th with a blue form asking to send in passport for visa. I have submitted my passport on may 1st. But still haven't received it yet. Vfs passport status says "your passport is in process at US consulate" Does it take this long? its been more than 18 days. Do i need to worry? Any one faced same situation waited such long? Thanks for your help!
  5. Hello, My current H1b petition will be expired on 30th Sep, 2012. I'm planning to file my extension in 10 days. Is it advisable for my wife to go h4 visa stamping with old(expires on 30 sept 2012) or extended petition? If she goes visa with extended petition, Can she travel with my old petition before oct, 2012, may be in july 2012 while visa is with extended petition? Can someone please help us out? Thanks for your help.
  6. Thanks for your help guys. Atlast i received my passport with VISA today. I think, my email with subject "120+ days pending" did the trick. For my previous 2 emails VFS didn't even care to send it to Consulate. But this time with that status message, VFS forward my email to consulate and got my VISA. I would suggest to include the days pending in subject and send an email. All the best. My petition end is sep 30th, 2012 and got visa with same expiration date. Hoping no trouble at POE. Thanks Again for your valuable inputs. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
  7. No news from my side. Still waiting for passport. Its been a month now.

I have submitted my passport on may 1st. its been 26 days. no news from consulate. Getting paniced again. Will this be another loop. :(

    PIMS update time for Reaffirmed Petitions?

    @appyfizz, Congrats for your visa. Have a safe flight to US. Even mine is at chennai consulate. They have asked me to submit passport for visa. Its been a while waiting. 23 days. whether this could be a PIMS delay? or back to admin processing? Million questions are popping up.
  11. @Visablues, Your are absolutely true. VFS is not helping, if we email them, they are replying with same standard message, without contacting Consulate. I have email twice, i got same reply. I even tried to call consulate. after dailing number and 2120. My call was hangup not connecting to anyone. Still waiting, no updates as of now.

    221g Additional Administrative Processing

    @Rajan12345, I think we are the only one's waiting this long after submitting the passport for visa. Don't know whats going on with my application.
  13. In the blue form they have email me, "Please Send in passport for visa" was hand written. Along with my passport i have submitted a copy of i797, DS160, i129 and LCA. Hyderabad vfs guy told that they just need copies, originals are not required, he also said photo is not required. Still waiting haven't heard anything 21 days now. :(
  14. I did call consulate, i have heard a recorded message to call VFS or emil VFS. I don't heard any option which will take us to a Visa specialist or some one. @Visablues, Sathys01, Did your call went to any visa specialist?

    221g Additional Administrative Processing

    @Rajan12345, Did you get your passport with visa? I'm in the same situation. Interview date: 13th Jan, 2012. I received a mail from Chennai consulate on Apr 30th with a blue form asking to submit passport for visa. I have submitted my passport on may 1st. But still now haven't received it yet. Vfs passport status says "your passport is in process at US consulate" Its been 20 days. Does it take such long time? Any one faced same situation waiting for their passport?
  17. Thanks guys for your good words. I'll try to call consulate Monday morning. Sathys01, They sent via blue dart. i think thats the service all the US consulates use.
  18. When i sent an email yesterday to VFS for my case. Today got reply with same old status message. I'm confused, Did my case again went back to square 1 :(. I haven't contacts Consulate yet (with the number you guys provided). will do on monday. "This is to inform you that if your application is pending under Section 221(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) for mandatory administrative processing. Please note that there is no definite time for administrative processing. When administrative processing is required, the timing will vary depending on circumstances of each case. Be assured that the U.S. Consulate will contact you if the administrative processing is complete or if they require additional information."
  19. Sathys01, Jan 13th is my interview date. Visablues, My client was contacted by phone. Before that message, i used to get regular admin processing status from VFS. Is calling Chennai consulate directly to the number you provided helpful? Did you get the status message anything different than VFS?
  20. @VisaBlues I got similar reply in the last week of April and my client has been contacted in the same week. They have asked about who assigns work, about my project and the duration of my project. Then on 30th of April i received a mail with blue form in it, asking to submit my passport. I have submitted on May 1st, but still waiting to receive my passport. Its been 15 days. still waiting.
  21. "In this instance, post is attempting to independently verify certain information presented by you at the time of your interview" means that the consulate is trying to contact your client, vendor and may be your employer too. I have received such reply and my client and vendor has been contacted. They have been asked about E-E and the duration of project. Try give an heads up to your client and vendor. Hope this helps!
  22. Hello, I received a mail from Chennai consulate on Apr 30th with a blue form asking to submit passport. I have submitted my passport on may 1st. But still now haven't received it yet. Vfs passport status says "your passport is in process at US consulate" Does it take more than 7 working days? Do i need to worry? Any one faced same situation?
