221(g) White sheet - Passport retained

Recommended Posts


I attended the VISA interview in Hyderabad on 8th. VO said everything looks fine but he has to do some Administrative check and retained my petition and passport.

Can someone tell me if I am some kind of trouble?

He has just striked the option of "your application needs additional administrative processing before the final decision can be made"

please help. I am confused as VO did not ask any documents or anything.

Usually on the white sheet of paper that's given to you, there are a bunch of questions and you need to e-mail them the answers. The questions are mostly routine ones seeking additional info.

Once you answer them, they'll process your case which involves them validating all your information. Once that's done, they will get in touch once the visa is approved.

Them holding onto your passport is a good thing. That means they think you're case won't take too long to approve. But in case you need your passport for anything, you can always call them to get it. However, that will delay the procedure by a few days.
