Dropbox - Refused

Hi all,

I applied for an H1b visa (first-time) and I am eligible under the new interview waiver dropbox option (VWP) so used it. The case was updated yesterday to “Application received” but today it is showing “Refused”.

I have mailed all the requested documents with my application:

  1. Passport
  2. Photo x1
  3. DS 160 confirmation
  4. Appointment/Dropbox confirmation
  5. I-797 approval
  6. Employer verification letter

What is the case status while they are actually processing “Administrative processing”?
What exactly is a “Refused” status, is it like an RFE or more like a denial?
How will they communicate to me about the refusal letter via email or mail all the documents back?

Please suggest.

Thank you,

Thank you Kalpesh.

So what does administrative processing mean? Does it refer to a regular visa processing or special scrutiny leading to 221g?

Thank you
