Upon filing of petition by my son (US Citizen) & completion of fomalities for immigration visa (Immediate relative), I appeared before the US Embassy Dhaka on 18.11.07 for an interview. Although the Officer was satisfied with my papers, issued a blue Sheet (221g) mentioning "Additional processing. we will contact you as soon as we receive the result"
The Embassy contacted me over phone on 23.01.08. & asked me to submit my passport with the blue sheet, which I did.They again phoned me on 06.02.08. to collect my passport & IV. I have collected IV today.
The Embassy officials were co-operative.
221(g) is therefore not always a refusal.
Hope this information will help members of this forum.
