I'm US citizen. I applied For my wife C1/R1 visa. I applied in December 23rd 2018. Waited more than year. And then on the interview they gave her a white slip 221(g). And asked for my previous marriage original divorce certificate. I send it to her by FedEx. She drooped it off at the embassy on February 22nd. On March 3rd the status changed to refused she didn't receive any calls or email. We were in panic until we found out there was a change in Ceac terminology. Still showing refused.

Notes:
This is my first H1b visa stamping. My visa Interview was on Feb 25th at the Chennai consulate. The visa officer was asked me all general questions right from my master's to the current job and it went on 15 minutes, after that the VO suggested me to wait in the lobby for about 20 minutes and he took my client letter. The VO called me to the counter after 20 minutes and asked me what are the other documents I have? I gave him my current W2 and recent paystubs. He went on typing on the computer for about 2 minutes and gave me the blue slip saying that track this case number and If we need any documents will send an email. I have been checking daily with the case number and DS-160 application number there is no update so far. Could you please help me If anyone has the same scenario? Thank you!

I am a FTE software engineer working in the avionics industry. I had a regular interview and the VO asked me the usual questions. After asking me for my job description the interview slowed down. The VO was looking into her computer for 3-5 mins and then handed me the 221g blue slip with request to email additional documents. (resume, travel history, publications, job descriptions, invitation letter etc) The invitation letter part was confusing since I am a FTE. I believe "avionics" is on the list of TAL(technology alert list), which might have triggered a case for 221g, but this is just a guess. As of 03/17 I haven't heard back from them yet.

We are living in US from the past 13 years. My Husband came to India for family emergency and he went to stamping on feb 13 in Chennai India. Interview went very well and they ask my husband project description and he gave it to them and they handed over 221g blue form and they said they need to look into and it will take time. In the form they check marked as "Your application is refused for administrative processing. The application will be reconsidered when application process is completed". Till today we didn't receive any update. They didn't ask me any documents either. I am so confused and worried. Is anyone had same problem.

H1B 221g Passport not collected, refused to admin processing I had my interview, Chennai consulate, and my passport was returned to me with a 221g with only a box checked by the officer that says my application was refused for admin processing. Not sure if this happens with the most or retaining the passport with me is a good/bad sign as compared to with the officer that happens in most cases. 03/10/20: Had an email inquiry about my employment and project details from KCCFPU(Kentucky Consular centre and Fraud Protection Unit) to my client manager. Had asked a bunch of questions (10) My manager was prompt to see and reply The inquiry requested answers to be submitted within 2 weeks to avoid any further processing delays Passport requested on 03.13
