H1 visa approved but passport not yet received


I have attended my H1 visa interview at Hyderabad US consulate and got approved on 22 July 2014 but my passports are not yet received, what could be the reason or what I need to do to get additional information on my case, if any one had the same experience please share with me.


You mean, you went for PA and it got approved ? Provide more details like which consulate you applied, whether attended alone or with family etc.


i have edit my question an added some more details that i have attended my H1 interview on 22nd at Hyderabad US consulate but not yet received my passport.


If the Visa officer specified as Approved. Please wait they will courier the passport with visa stamped in a weeks time. Even it delays by a week dont worry. you will get it.


Hi shiny,
Thanks for the quick response, your comments gave me hopes on my visa.

Anyhow I am planning to go on Monday to check with the US consulate people, may be I will get some response from them or if any mistake happen on the delay they can move my passport to visa stamping.

What do you say? Is my approach help full to me?


I’m not sure you can walk through to US consulate to get to know the status.

Pls chk your DS160 status in below site.


Pls wait for a weeks time, call up to get to know the status after a week.


I have checked my status and now my case status is “Administrative Processing” and complete status message is below

Your visa case is currently undergoing necessary administrative processing. This processing can take several weeks. Please follow any instructions provided by the Consular Officer at the time of your interview. If further information is needed, you will be contacted. If your visa application is approved, it will be processed and mailed/available within two business days.

For more information, please visit U.S. Consulate General Hyderabad.
