Congrats to Joseph who got H1B Visa Administrative Processing approval came after waiting for two years under Administrative processing. He attended H1B Visa interview in 2008 and got Visa stamping in 2010.
Typical Administrative processing wait times are between few days to two months. U.S. Consular tend to issue Administrative processing for visa interview attendee’s if verify more details about the application. It can be about job, student’s projects to the employer, etc. People have been waiting for multiple months to get Approval. But, this person waited for two years.
H1B Visa Administrative Processing Wait Time
Here’s something unique and exciting experience as shared by one of Happy Schools Reader. If you were wondering how long it would take to get H1B Visa stamping under Administrative processing, following experience will give n idea about the wait time.
I’m one of the active members of HSB (since 2008). I’m jubilant to inform HSB that I’ve got my H1B Visa stamped today after having waited for almost two years after attending H1B Visa interview.
My H1B Visa was approved during September 2010. I appeared for the H1B Visa interview during September 2008. I think my case was stuck on red tape and was kept pending for administrative processing. I kept sending emails to my immigration attorney almost every week. And my attorney in turn persistently followed-up my case at the State Department to clear my case out of Department of Homeland Security. At last after two years my entry visa has been approved.
So I would advise all my friends in HSB not to give-up hope. Keep following up. One day you would get clearance for sure. Good Luck to all my friends seeking H1B Clearance.
I’ve put up my resignation with the current employer. I’ve scheduled to depart to the US on September 2010.
My salutation to HSB. Thanks for all those wonderful support and the valuable information that is being provided by HSB.
If you are waiting for 221(g) approvals, now you know how long you may have to wait if you are waiting longer than a couple of months.
The key where to is to have your attorney talk to Department of State and USCIS. You will not get exact details on when or why your visa was put under administrative processing. But, by reaching out via an attorney or a congress member can get you answers.
