My interview was on 30th Sept and Officer returned passport because it was damaged and gave 221g blue slip. I applied for new passport and dropped it VAC Chennai on 4th Oct. The Status was Admin Processing till 17th October and it changed to "Application Received". After 15 mins, it changed back to Admin Processing. I am not sure how to understand this. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Date Change - Oct-16 (AP)

Date Change- Oct-18 (AP)

Still waiting for further processing. Has anyone experienced anything like this. Any help appreciated.

I attended visa interview on 4th Sep at Mumbai Consulate. Consular officer took my passport and issued 221(g) green slip stating " requires administrative processing if any documents required we ll email you". After my interview i started tracking my visa status and passport status. Visa status shows " Administrative Processing" till date. Passport status showed " your passport is still with Embassy/Consulate" till 15 days. After that when it try to track passport status it displays " no update available for the passport number submitted" till date.

On 10th Oct i received email stating " we are ready for final processing and requested to submit my passport, copy of i-797 and 221(g) at 11 document drop off locations". I went to Hyderabad document drop off location to submit i-797 and 221(g) copies since my passport still exits with Mumbai Consulate. So, representatives advised to send copies to same email i received.

Again on 15th Oct i received email stating " we are pleased to inform your administrative processing is complete please submit passport, copy of i-797 at 11 document drop off locations". I went to Hyderabad location to find out why keep sending to submit my passport even it still exists with Mumbai Consulate. Representatives called up Mumbai consulate and confirmed my passport exists with them. Later in the evening again i received email stating" you visa is still under administrative processing this can take several weeks for processing"

I m confused whether my visa status completed admin processing or not? I don't understand why did they send email to submit my passport even it exits with them.

Has anyone has faced this similar kind of issue?

Thanks for everyone.

VO asked me a lot of questions and finally said:
“There is one more step. Your visa will be ready in 5 or 6 days.”
No slips were given to me.
It is currently in Administrative Processing status.
Does that mean my visa is approved?

Hello all,

Could someone please share the available H1B dropbox appointments availability at Hyderabad consulate for the month of December? Also, is there any chance of Visa approvals without Client letter?

Thank you,
