    221 g Refusal Email After Initial In Person Approval

    Had my interview yesterday for the B2 - Tourist Visa. Had done Biometrics and everything prior to this interview.

    Interview went well, 15 Jan 2018, and the Interviewing Officer said that my Visa was approved and to collect my passport within 3-5 days. They didn't even ask to see any of my paperwork, which I had everything they would need.

    Then 2 hours after my interview, I get a call from the Consulate saying they need me to fill out the 221g. Then received the email saying that my Visa is refused until I send the questions back.

    I'm working on the questions, no, have nothing at all that would have them question anything other than having a Muslim middle name and surname.

    Any advice?

    8-jan-2018 (mon): got email saying collect passport from chandigarh
    11-jan-2018 (thu): collected passport, found 221g & asking to come to Delhi for 10-finger-printing before 10 AM, no appt needed
    12-jan-2018 (fri): went to delhi for finger-printing. Everyone in the line was issued 221g to appear either for finger-printing and/or interview. There were a few ppl who had gone for bio-metrics a week back and then were again called for finger-printing. Somebody didn't do their job properly!!

    Visa status (AP):
    Case created : 02-Jan-2018
    Case Last Updated: 12-Jan-2018

    Passport status:
    After 11th, status changed to 'Your passport has been picked up' &
    after 12th (after submitting my passport again to Delhi embassy), status is still 'Your passport has been picked up'. Have sent an email to '[email protected]' asking for correct status.


    Have rescheduled flight once.

      Yes. I would suggest you to wait a few more days. It took me almost 3 weeks to get my passport back.

      Mine was around 10. I think you are good. Don’t worry. I believe the process involves updates from one than person looking at the application.
