Need help -- H1B 221g White slip Administrative Processing -- HYD consulate

Hi everyone,

Attended H1B Visa interview at HYD consulate on May 17th. Went into the consulate at 10 AM slot.

VO - Can you please pass on your LCA and Client letter

Typing for almost 10 mins …

VO - Where are you working ?

me - Working for XXX comapany and XXX location

VO - How long are you working ?

me - Since last one year

VO - where did you worked previously ?

me - worked at NY in XXX client

VO- What kind of role ?

me – told my role

Typing for almost 10 mins again …

VO - What is your salary ?

me - XXX K

VO - your LCA shows that your salary is $60,000, Why is it less than what you’ve told me ?

me - $60,000 is the minimum basic wage any H1B employee would get , that’s what they have mentioned there .

VO - So, your employer isn’t paying you complete amount ?

me - No, he is paying me what I’ve told. I can show you my pay stubs now.

------- She didn’t asked me to take out though ----------

VO - Returned my passport and handed over “221g white slip” and ticked the check box, needs further “administrative processing”. No documents requested.

It’s been 2 weeks passed by today, Still the status says the same and the case updated last was the same when I’ve attended my interview ( 17th May) Currently my client permitted to work from home , how long this white slip processing is taking , I’m aware that there is no time frame for admin processing , but need the average time taken for the guys who received white slip.

----> I have one more question here ,

No documents asked till date yet. Only LCA and client letter took by the consular. Is there any chance that I can attend the interview again with different consulate by taking an other LCA copy from my employer (may be different country Mexico or Canada) ? ? please suggest !!!Thanks
