I had applied for H1 ext in Oct'2019 along with my spouse' H4. Meanwhile my spouse got H1, so we requested USCIS to withdraw H4 (specifically I539) application. I got my H1 approval, the next day USCIS withdrew my application (in error) along with spouse H4. As H1 cannot be withdrawn by USCIS without employer requesting for same my employer reached out to USCIS and USCIS re-opened my case and sent another H1 physical copy as approved (online status not updated). In Jan I came to India, I was eligible for drop-box, but got 221g slip to attend interview. On Feb 10th I attended visa interview and I was given 221g again, no documents asked.The consular informed that my visa in their system shows revoked :( (their systems are not in sync) We reached out to USCIS and USCIS again confirmed that my case is approved. Got new document from USCIS and submitted to consulate. No acknowledgment received.I reached out to consulate numerous times to no avail, plus consulate has been closed since March

Hi Guys, Me and my wife did attended for H1/H4 visa interview at Chennai consulate on 25th Feb. The interview was quick 2/3 minutes. Asked about Salary, Job Duties, Highest degree, Job location. Everything answered but after few seconds VO said i am not rejecting/ refusing your visa but need to few docs to further process and gave a pink slip. And did retained both of our passports. I did sent the applicable docs - Employer invitation letter, Detailed Cv, 10 years travel history. Research and Publications not applicable in my case. My field of working in Oil and Gas industry. I have my travels booked for Mid March. Does anyone in the same boat as me? and when i can expect some reply? Thanks May 12th 2020: Guys my Case status changed from Refused to Administrative Processing on May 12th. Any clue when we can expect the next status update? Thanks
