Do you work at their office?
Since how long you are working over there?

VO took my passport and I-797, given me pick up instructions sheet and said your visa is approved and you will get an email in 2-3 days.
My amendment petition was approved in October 2015 but still PIMS has old dates. My case is under admin processing currently, so waiting for status updates. Please let me know if any one had PIMS issue recently and how long it is taking nowadays to get the passport back in these cases.
