I had L1B blanket visa interview and issued pink slip at end of interview asking for additional document submission such as invitation letter, resume, position details, international travel last 10 years, trip funding, research and publications. Submitted additional documents on 04th Feb2020. status 24/02 is admin processing. As per received information, the Consulate typically needs 1-3 weeks to complete their review after submission, however Consulate in Chennai has the slowest turnaround time and no status inquiries are accepted within 60 days. Status - Refused on 04/03/20, no denial msg or passports returned.. Surprisingly Case Last update date shows 27Jan20. Status - Back to "Administrative Processing" back 05/03/20, Case Last updated date 05/03/20 Status - Issued on 06/03/20 on CEAC site, so far no email received for notification. Status - Received passport in hand by 9th March20.

Timeline is as below- Jan 13th- Passport submitted for dropbox Jan 16th Case created with 'Admin Processing' status Jan 23rd- Received an email to collect passport.

Feb 12th (still in Admin processing with last update made back on Jan 28th.)

Nick Name: F1 visa in AP for 7+ months
Interview Date:

Embassy/Consulate:
Sri Lanka : Colombo
Visa Center:

Document Submission Date:
08/20/2019
Passport Collected:
Yes
Notes:
I'm a PhD student and I held an F1 visa for the past 4 years. I travelled to Europe last summer and I wasn't allowed to return. Upon contacting the consulate, I was told that my visa had been cancelled (even though it was supposed to be valid until this year). No reason was provided and I was told to reapply for a new visa. I applied for a new F1 visa and it has been in AP for the past 7 months. No updates on my case, inquiry emails by me and senator/congressperson all come back with generic response. I've missed two semesters because of this and has had a serious impact on finishing my degree. I have no clue why they cancelled my visa in the first place, ahead of its expiry. I asked VO during my interview and he said "I have no idea". I have not committed any visa violations to my knowledge. Would appreciate any advice on how to make progress in my case.

Interview date - 1/22 Asked me about my job. If our company had a website (we do not). How many people work at my office. Pay stubs. Tax returns. Issued blue slip and returned my passport back to me. Immigration officer said processing shouldn't take too long. Still waiting. 1/22 - interview. AP. 2/21 - Received email to submit passport. Submitted on same day. 2/24 - Your passport is still at the consulate/embassy 3/03 - Changed from Admin Processing to refused when tracked through CEAC tracker. I believe this is due to a change in terminology as it happened to many people 03/04 - Changed from refused back to Admin Processing, and case last updated date is now 03/04 03/05 - Status on CEAC changed to Issued
