I was asked to provide the client letter with client's letterhead. I was not carrying one, so the officer gave the 221g slip and asked to submit the documents The documents were submitted on 03/11. But due to covid-19 the consulates have stopped processing 221g. Hope to see some updates quickly after lockdown is lifted

My company and client submitted all the documents asked in 221g on 13th March. There is no update after that. I guess there will be no update unless Embassy reopens after this Coronvirus Pandemic slows down. Anyone else in same boat?

But we are not seeing any update until now anyone on the same boat? 03/11 - Client Verification email received. 03/26 - Client responded back.
