H1B stamping Hyderabad - No slip given But Visa Application status shows Administrative Processing


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


   I have attended H1 B visa interview @ Hyderabad on Nov 4th 2014.  I am a full time employee in a US based Company. 


On the day of the interview, VO said my visa is approved and he took my passport. 


I have not received my passport yet :(


Till yesterday i.e., Nov 19th  on the passport tracker tool I was getting the status that 'Your passport is still with the US Embassy/Consulate'


However today (Nov 20th) the status is  - 'There is no status update available for the passport number submitted'


The  US Travel docs call center escalated my case on Nov 17th and till now I have not received any email from US Consulate. 


Any one have the same issue?  Is this alarming?

Hi All,


   After sending tons of emails and calls to us travel docs call center regarding my passport tracking status, I received an email from HYDCEAC@state.gov like this - 


Dear Applicant:

What does this Processing mean? Apart from this I have not received any other email from US Consulate for additional documentation or anything?  This status update is so vague.  Any inputs plz?
