I was issued a 221g earlier because the passport I’d submitted was damaged. I have now got a new passport, and also a new I-797. I e-mailed the consulate (Chennai) to see what documents to submit now. They responded saying that I should submit my new passport, 221g notice and the new I-797.
I will be using the drop-box facility in Chennai. Has anyone been in a similar situation? - got 221g for damaged passport? And how long did it take for them to return the passport after you submitted it?
Any response is welcome. I only have about 20 days after my submit my passport to my travel date so I am hoping they’d be able to return the passport before my travel.
