issued 221g white slip for H1B application - administrative processing but passport is with consulate


I attended my H1 interview in September.

I was issued 221g white slip and my case is in administrative processing but passport is with consulate. VO said they need to do additional processing.

What are the chances of getting visa as my passport was not returned? How long will they keep the passport? Can it be rejected even if passport is still with them?

The 221g white slip does not have any details, it was a plain paper and nothing was written or marked on it by VO.I have not been asked to submit anykind of documents.

Anyone with similar case?

Suggestions will be helpful.

If they kept the passport and didn’t ask for any documents, then that’s a positive sign. However, nothing can be said for sure until you receive the final outcome.

Hi siddartha,
What is the latest update on this case? I had similar experience yesterday at Hyderabad. They gave me white slip and nothing was marked on it. Did you get your visa ? If so how long did it take?

I am under similar scenario. Did you guys hear back?

Similar case happened to me on 23rd of august do you guys any update?
