I would really appreciate if somebody could help me out by sharing your experiences if your visa stamping process has gone through administrative processing. How long did you have to wait if you were issued a 221 (g). I would really appreciate responses.

Hi Nabina,

I had exact same story when I went to Nepal to get my H1b stamped last year. The interview went very well and I was hoping to get the visa the same day but unfortunately the visa officer handed me a letter saying my application needs some kinda admin processing....that turned out to be 221g. I was very frustrated.

I talked to my employer (manager) and described him what happened and requested him to send an email to the visa section, US embassy Nepal. He was so nice to me and he did accordingly. The consulate office called me few days after that to come pick the visa. My case was on hold for about 3 weeks. The only difference in your case compared to mine is you're working on an IT consultancy which I dont think is making any difference in this case. Good luck and I am pretty sure you will get through this in a week or two. But don't forget to talk to your employer in US.

I was in the same boat as you were now. They took 2 and half months to issue my Visa. I had a great time staying in Nepal though I had a lil panic time everyday. So, I tell you to enjoy your stay there rather than panicking.

All the best to you.

Thank you so much all. While I am enjoying my stay with my family and relatives, I am equally worried about my job. My employer may not wait for me for 2-3 months. I don't know what will happen if I lose job in the course of this administrative processing.

How long were you there for ? Do/Did you have/had the return ticket with you ? You might wanna extend your vacation I would say. In my story I had to cancel my return ticket which was non-refundable and booked another one which was very very expensive as I booked the ticket at the last hour. But I have not heard of anybody not getting it though. Be positive.

Thank you so much everyone. Yes, I had a return ticket also but I've rescheduled it now. I hope I won't have to reschedule it again!

Nabina, It's unfortunate to receive U-221g  letter. When you have a clean employment record, you don't have to panic  at all. Some one is lucky to get clearance in couple  of days while others are not.
My wife had been through the similar situation and her visa was held for 3 months. I did lot of research and called USCIS  officer. Once you get U-221g, your case will be forwarded to dept.of labor. Per new immigration law, your updated status & employment has to be forwarded to labor dept. by USCIS. It's not an automated process. Due to back log and process being manual, some are unfortunate to have their system not logged in Labor's system. Labor dept, in turn, ask USCIS for your  updated information. After your background check is completed by labor, they'll issue clearance to consulate and only consulate can issue your visa. It's just a coincidence that some of guys got clearance before they sent email to consulate regarding their visa status. Otherwise you'll get same common answer "your case is still in admin processing..."  whether you call or email. Keep patience. You can see more information from lawyers in Murthy or immigrationvoice . good luck

I also got 221g at the time of interview last week. It took them 2 days to get the PIMS verified and another 24 hours for processing.

You know why you got 221g? PIMS? Security check?

If it is a security check, then the wait will be for a while.

it's good to hear your case was resolved so quickly.  I am not sure why i got 212g but the counselor had said the process generally takes 2 days. So I hope its PIMS.  Anyways thanks for the info.

It seems that you got 221g for the same reason that I got: PIMS verification. The consular officer had also told me that it will take them 2-3 days to get it verified. I had mentioned to him though that I had my flight five days later, and he had said that that shouldn't be a problem. I hope though that you have more than a week before you come back

Just keep mailing the consular office (email add should be up there in this thread) to check the status. They notified me when they received the PIMS number but they wouldn't tell me anything about my PP and Visa. After getting too generic answers I went to the embassy myself (since I was to fly a day later) to check the status. They have a free counseling session to everyone from 1:00-3:00pm everyday. They canceled the session the day I went there but I made my case to the guards there, who fortunately understood my situation and let me enter the facility. I had my passport back a few minutes later!

If you are not short on time, just relax and enjoy and keep mailing the embassy from time to time. Otherwise, you gotta do what you gotta do!

Finally got my H-1B stamped after 4 and half months of wait. It was indeed a very frustrating and depressing wait but finally it got over. Although most of the people are lucky to go through a positive experience in terms of H-1B stamping, it's always better to think of the worst case scenarios while deciding to go home for stamping. Screw you 221 (g)!:-) Thanks for all the support!

 how about holds for security (background check) reasons? my case is a bit different. i passed the interview for F1 visa. but since i was arrested jan 13 2006 (but not convicted ... the case was not even registered in the court hence dismissed), the consular is further looking into the matter.... what makes my case worse is that my arrest was for controlled substance. now i just want my passport back since i am scheduled to travel to UK from work later this week. any idea what i should do?
