H1B Administration processing


Recommended Posts


23rd Feb: I attended Visa interview at US consulate, Chennai. Consular officer asked about employer and about my research.

                 He just asked for my CV and issued 221g blue slip. Only one item was ticked "you application needs additional

                 processing before a final decision can be made". 

                At US travels website, passport tracking showed "the passport is with US consulate. CEAC showed case created on 23rd Feb (day of interview).

10th Mar: Passport tracking showed " There is no status update available for the passport number submitted

14th Mar: CEAC website has updated case to 14th Mar and still shows administration processing.


What's going on? please help

This is just normal administrative processing happening to many people these days. From date of interview, it should take about a month to get your approval. So you should expect some news around 23rd February.

My wife on h4 visa also has same issue. Her case went into administrative processing and still pending. She dropped her documents on 24th feb in hyderabad consulate.
