@Srini_221G@Aug26 - Congrats...Just a quick question..Did you get an email as well as a courier from the consulate or just the courier with all the documents? When i called up VFS, they say that i will get a call/email from the consulate when they are done processing my case.

@pranavi2008 - When you say you contacted the chennai consulate, did you call them up? When can we start calling them/DOS? I submitted my docs on Sep 29, 2011. So far, it has been only 9 working days at the consulate.

@jay12344 - Sorry to hear about your case buddy but i am sure u will get your visa soon. Well client letter should be good for point 5, in point since it also mentions copy of contract between petitioner and client company. So you need to get this as well. Good luck and hope for the best. Please post any updates u may have and keep this posting alive


Actually in point 6, they have asked for "Letter from the client company sponsoring the project " along with contract..

so i was just wondering if they require any other doc, other than Client manager letter?

@chn_221g_green - Did u try calling DOS or consulate? try calling DOS to see if they have any updates on your case. Well the typical time frame once all the documents are submitted in Chennai is 4-6 weeks if we r lucky enough. So u have 1 more week to go to see if this is the case with u as well. Also you can see the previous posts here that guys are getting positive responses (Srini_221G@Aug26, pranavi..) from consulate, so be optimistic

Following are my details

Interview Date : Sep 12, 2011

Visa denied with 221g green form, was asked to submit most of employer related documents, paystubs for 2011 and bank statement.

Docs Submitted : Sep 29, 2011

Email received : None

Engagement Model : EVVC

I called up the consulate today and was told that they have sent me another 221g form through VFS already. I called up VFS to check if they have couriered it to me. But it looks like they have no info about it and told that i will get a mail directly from consulate. VFS and DOS say that my case is under mandatory administrative processing. I dont seem to understand what is really going on. Is anyone else in the same state as i am in now?

@srini_221G@Aug26 - When you said you received the courier the day when the consulate posted it, did you actually see the letter dated the same day? I am in Tamilnadu though not in chennai. Not sure how long i need to wait to get the letter

Hi Folks,

I got another 221g green form asking to submit the below doc

A copy of the petition with all the supporting documents as filed to USCIS.

The officer had specifically written "Letter as sent to USCIS". I thought that i had submitted the letter, I797, I129 and LCA. What exactly is the letter that the consulate is looking for? I am confused now. Can someone help me understand what should we submit for the above?

@h1visaseeker - They r looking for the petition which is I129 and all the supporting documents that ur employer sent to USCIS while applying for H1. He would have also sent a letter addressed to USCIS justifying why they r hiring u r sponsoring u and things. So consulate is looking for this as well. You said consulate gave u 221g with most of the options checked then how come u didn't submit these before?

@221g_SEP9_2011 - did u try calling the consulate and DOS? they may have some updates. Since u r already into 6th week after submitting documents i think u should be expecting to hear something as the typical wait time in Chennai after docs r submitted is 4-6 weeks. Be optimistic and all will be good. We are all in the same boat buddy, there's nothing much we can do rather than hope for the best. Good luck

@h1visaseeker - they are looking for the petition I129 along with all the supporting documents that ur employer sent to uscis while applying for H1. Apart from this he would have also addressed USCIS with a letter justifying why they r in need of you or why they r sponsoring u and so u need to sent this letter as well to consulate and that's what they are they are looking for
