221g White form recieved Hyderabad with passport returned.No docs were asked

Hello ,

          I have attended interview at hyd consulate.VO didn't ask me for single doc and asked general questions

like who is ur petitioner,sal,location,project .After explained about the project he looked into system for some time then returned white 221g with option checked for admin processing and also returned the passport.

But I have all required supporting documents with me.

So Could you pls let me know what are the chances in getting the visa.

I heard that 221G : A WHITE form is a complex category 221G - They return the Case to USCIS for further Verification.

Is your employer genuine? If so, they can file MTR on NOID.

Hi ,
Yes my employer is genuine. already for some members visa was approved in last 10-15 days

@krishna05, can you please post your updates here if any?
I got the same white slip, and I was told by the consular officer that if I did not hear back from them within 14 days, I should contact them.
Did they tell anything like this for you?

@ragsun, No Vo just said that if tey require any further docs/info then they will contact me.But 2 days back sent a mail to support@ustraveldocs.com stll got the same answer.

did you contact them?If so ,what did they replied?

@balu7315 did they retain your passport? If yes, then you should get some response within 2 weeks. My interview was on last Wednesday and my visa was approved the following Monday.

Hi they haven’t retain my passport. That’s why it is delaying I guess. But not sure how to proceed in my case.

Please let me know your suggestion
