Question aboit processing time for H1B in 221g Administrative processing :
I had my H1-B Stamping interview on 19th in Chennai. Interviewer told me that everything seems to be in order but he needs some admin processing and issued me a pink slip. He directed me to another counter where a lady asked abt my education qualification and kept my passport.
She wrote a case no. and asked me to check status regularly on US consulate site.
For 3 days my status was being shown as “Pending Process” in status PDF but when I checked yesterday , I couldn’t find my case no. at all.
Can anyone please guide me what does it mean?
H1B Administrative Processing
There is no time limit for administrative processing. Wait can be from few weeks to several months. I know few who had to wait for 3 months due Administrative processing of H1B Visa at Chennai Consulate.
All you can do is keep checking the status daily. Each H1B Visa stamping case is unique and there is nothing much you can gain by comparing with others.
You can see here – H1B approved after 2 years in 221g Administrative processing
