  • H1B Visa renewal at Vancouver, BC

    I did my PhD in computer Networks and work for a networking company. I joined as a software engineer and
    moved into product management and work as a product management engineer in Jan 2017 after my I-140 has
    been approved. The legal firm said it shouldn't create any problem.

    I had my appt at Vancouver, BC on Jan 8, 2018 at 9:15 am for 3 year H1B extension. I was given a yellow
    slip that said my visa was rejected due to 221(g). The VO told me that my application is placed under
    administrative processing and will take from a week to a month to complete the process. She didn't check
    any documents that need to be submitted on the form. I am not sure if the state dept is already implementing
    the current administration proposal of not extending H1B renewal after 6 years.

    I was given a choice of getting my passport back while they process my visa application. I left my passport with
    them hoping it will save some time when they approve.

    So, I am not sure what would happen next. Anyone in the same boat?
