221g blue slip H1B success story


Recommended Posts


Just wanted to share with you all the timeline to get H1B visa approval

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 - updated case to 14th Mar but still shows administration processing.

15th Mar: CEAC website shows ISSUED

Passport tracking showed  Passport has been received from the consular section, and is currently being processed for delivery

Totally it took 20 days to change from 'ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESSING'   to   'ISSUED' 

It came on right time for me. PRAISE THE LORD!
