Notes:
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

This is my fresh H1b application. VO asked questions related to client and end client. I gave the client letter and VO scanned the same. I am in EC model. VO gave back all our passports (myself and my dependents) and issued blue slip with only AP option. None of the documents were requested and my client received verification email on 28th May which was answered the very next day. Till now CEAC site shows no update. Anyone in the same boat? Thanks! Update 1: 07/08/2019 : Got a white slip today requesting end client letter, Project description, company roster of employees who are in a similar role. I am in EC model. I work for my client (XXX) and my end client is YYY who is our end user and hence they will not provide client letter. In this case can my client (XXX) justify the same and provide the requested client letter? Please let me know your experiences. Thanks! Update 2: Submitted the end client letter on Feb 20, 2020 as requested by the Embassy. Finally got email to submit pps.
