Hi all,

I had my interview on Sept 11th. The VO asked me very basic things, answered all the questions promptly but VO handed me over a 221g white slip and retained my passport. Below are the questions the VO asked

1. Petitioner name
2. Client name
3. Expiry date on your most recent i797
4. How long have you been working for this client?
5. Highest level of education


Last updated day: Sep 11th
Status: Adminstrative processing

Lady updated day : Sep 13th
Status: Administrative processing

This is my first H1B stamping, is handing over 221g very common in recent days? I have my return flight on Sept 21st, could somebody please suggest if I should move my ticket?

Same case me after drop box they called me
for interview.

Same questions asked and interview fine went well
 on sep9th 2019. But he asked me w2 forms and my payslips
 so at that time I didn't had much time to submit those docs ,so VO asked to be submit via email
And handed over 221g blue slip again with passport returned.

He advised I will get email to drop off my passport back.

Still no updates case showing administrative processing
