No need to be sarcastic. Who created all these visa problems in first place ?. Mostly Desi consulting companies and people who work for them (of late, some `students' who enroll in fake universities also have joined to abuse the immigration system). The more fraudsters are in play, the more authorities tend to be vigilant and that causes problems to genuine applicants too.

I went for VI on the same day and have a similar case..could you give tell me details..

What kind of 221g you were given, the color?

Were you asked for some additional docs ?

Is this your first H1B or renewal ?

Are you direct employee or thru contractor ?

What is your field ?

I was given 221g, pink color after my interview from another window and asked for additonal docs which I sent the same day...

Knowing each others status would help on time lines..

Let's share info via this forum..
