B1/B2 Renewal Dropbox - Status "Refused"

Hi All - My first post here and on a discussion forum in general in probably a decade! Good to be back. :slight_smile:

I applied for a B1/B2 visa renewal in May and scheduled an appointment for 29 Dec, 2022. The visa is set to expire in June 2023.

The processing was delayed expectedly due to the new year and the last updated date as of morning of 10 January IST was the 4th of January. Status was set as “Application Received”.

On the evening of the 10th of Jan, the status on CEAC was updated to “Refused”, most likely because of 221g processing.

Posting this here to get a sense based on other guys’ experience as to how long do typically B1 dropbox renewal cases take to move to administrative processing and hopefully issued?

My situation at the moment based on searches on Google, YouTube looks super unique.

Thanks once again you all! :slight_smile:
