221g Administrative Processing


Recommended Posts

I was traveling for business from US to Italy and applied for H1B stamping at the US consulate in Italy with an approved I-797. 3rd time H1B renewal, working with the same company, same job, not in IT. Got 221g at the interview asking for 2 sets of documents. Submitted all requested documents and its been more than 2 weeks (more than 3 weeks since the day of interview) but still waiting on AP, no change in status. 

Is it okay to travel to home country, India, while AP is still in process, and come back to the consulate in Italy when they approve? I have valid Indian passport plus valid Schengen visa till September next year.
