  1. Sharing my recent experience from Chennai US consulate.
    Received 221g (blue) for Admin Processing.

    Had H1B and H4 interview in Chennai. Been in US for 10 yrs and this is my 3 rd H1B stamping.
    Visa Officer asked few basic questions and took all my documents and asked me to wait in the lobby.
    After 3 hrs, they called me back to the counter and gave my passport and all docs back and gave the 221g blue slip and said they need to do additional administrative processing which could take few weeks.
    Not sure what to interpret from this.
    I am on E-V-C model. I had all employer docs and client and vendor letters. VO seemed to happy with all docs I provided but still gave me this 221g.

    Please let me know if anyone else had a similar experience.

    Thanks.


  2. My wife was on H1 last year and got her status revoked on january 2012 and moved to H4.

    Its been 3 months now and we want to reapply for H1 with the same employer.

    My questions is

    1. Can we start working with the receipt notice or should we wait for the approval?

    Thanks


  3. Thanks for your reply.

    I have another question. The same employer will be applying for the H1 again for my wife. It will not be an amendment but a new H1B petition using the old H1b petition quota. Will that cause any problem? I mean, will they give RFE on why a new petition is being applied by same employer when the old petition was valid but the visa was denied?


  4. I got the below email today.

    "As per the US Consulate, based on the documents you submitted to them and the information elicited in your interview with an American Consular officer, they were not able to issue you an H1B work visa as the Post believes that the petitioner is unable or unwilling to provide qualifying employment and will not be able to maintain the employer-employee relationship. Therefore, your application will be soon returned to the Kentucky Consular Center (KCC). Once KCC receives a petition, it returns to the approving office of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) for review and possible revocation. Please direct all future inquiries regarding this case to the approving USCIS office."

    Can anyone suggest what i can do for the next steps? Does this mean the visa is rejected ?


  5. finally got the below rejection email this afternoon after 45 days of waiting...

  6. #254 l1toh1us: my employer and client both have not been contacted yet ..

    Do they contact in every case?

    I am not sure if they contact the client/employer in all the case. It depends on why u were given 221g.

    in my case the 221g was blue for admin processing regarding client verification. even after providing the client letter the VO wanted to check with client directly.

    They did contact the client and a standard questioner was sent.


  7. I went for interview on oct 18th and was issued a 221g blue for admin processing. when i call up VFS helpdesk they say i cant track my case online. i have to wait for the email/SMS from the consulate.

    I was given a case number and i see that batch number before me are getting ISSUED in chennai consulate. They might be of different case or even different color form. Does this movement of batch number mean that i will get an email/SMS when i see my batch number getting ISSUED?

    Please advice..


  8. Had interview @chennai on oct 18th and got 221g blue form but dd not ask for any additional documents but said needs additional administrative processing. its been 3 weeks and still no emails from consulate to submit the passport.

    The client was contacted and the response was sent back to consulate. When contacted the DOS they say its still PENDING.

    For 221g blue, are u guys able to track the case number on the website?

    i see the batch numbers closer to my batch numbers getting updated to ISSUED.
