Sharing Ankur’s comments.
My name is Ankur.
I had my visa interview on 16 th july at new delhi consulate.
I am applying for master in information technology at University of North Carolina Charlotte.
This is my second attempt for the visa.
After my visa they gave me 221(g) yellow slip and asked me to submit the sevis transfer notification.
I submitted that along with my passport and I-20 on 30 of july.
Today I get the passport without my visa with a 214(b) letter.
I am feeling completely dejected now. I don’t know what to do. My orientation will be on 18 of Aug.
About 221(g) – Administrative Processing
Will you still issue my visa?
We end up issuing almost all cases that we refuse under Section 221(g). As soon as we determine that you are qualified, we will “overcome” the refusal under Section 221(g) and issue the visa.
If you will issue anyway, why do you refuse in the first place?
The law requires us to adjudicate (issue or refuse) every case on the day of the application. Since we usually are not yet prepared to issue, we must first refuse.
We will not overcome every single person’s 221(g) refusal. For example, if we ask you to provide a birth certificate or additional proof of your relationship, and you do not give it to us within one year, your case will remain in refused status. Finally, if we discover that you are not eligible for the visa for some other reason, we will also refuse you under the new, appropriate section of the law.
