    guys finally got my Visa today... got an email this morning from the VFS help line saying that they have received the passport and that I can collect my passport over the counter this evening else it will be mailed out to me...

    Visa interview date: Nov the 23rd, 2010 (day 326)
    Location: Chennai
    No questions asked by the VO
    Documents asked: W2s and Tax Returns
    The lady at the other counter asked about my previous employment and intl travels
    Got 221g admin processing (pink slip)
    visa issued: April the 5th, 2011 (day 95)

    Things that I did while waiting for the visa:
    1. Kept calling DOS every few weeks
    2. Sent emails to chennai SAO every few weeks
    3. Had a friend in US write to the congressman
    4. Had a lawyer friend in US send an email to legalnet

    though all of the above got me the same std reply "STILL UNDER PROCESS", it was just an exercise to keep up the motivation

    All the best to all of you who are still waiting! It shall come through soon!

      Is it safe

      Congrats Idris! I'm very happy for you...Frustrating waitime is over for you!
      Is it ok to send an email to LegalNet by myself? When i contacted my company immi team they said it may create issues if we approach US consulate etc. Please advise what needs to be done?

        nly immigration attorneys can write to legalnet email id. If you not an attorney, you wont get any response from them.

        This is an excerpt from the "acknowledgement of receipt" that you get when you write to legalnet;

        LegalNet is an email channel limited to immigration attorneys to inquire
        about the status of visa applications or request an advisory opinion on
        the denial of a visa. If you are not an immigration attorney inquiring
        about a case, we will not be able to reply further to your email, and
        this response will be the only reply you'll receive

        Your company's attorney can write on your behalf. I dont think writing to legalnet will impact your case.
