asked May 10, 2016 in H1B: Visa Stamping by rsival (150 points)
I attended H1B Visa Interview in US Consulate, Chennai on 01/29/2016 along with family (they applied for H4) and was given with blue slip with the option selected in it is basically "case should undergo administrative processing and will take few weeks to complete". VO asked following questions only and the interview ended in less than 5 mins. a) how long I have been with current employer ? b) whom I am going to work for in US ? c) who is my client ? d) do i have the client letter ? ....VO kept the client letter and returned our passports e) also one basic question each to my family as well.

I called US Consulate Chennai Help Desk after 3 weeks but was given the same standard message. Again called after 7 weeks, I was told mail was sent to end client and case will move forward when end client responds back. But end client confirms he or his team did not receive any mail...Again called US Consulate Chennai Help Desk and they advised the client to call KCC with my case details and speak for. End client called KCC on 03/031 but looks no forum available in public to track these cases it seems and no help was provided by KCC as well.

Again called US consulate Chennai help desk who directed me to VFS team in New Delhi. They advised end client to send a detailed mail to support-india@ustraveldocs.com since my case is more than 60 days old. Client did sent across the same on 04/22 reg me which includes all justifications and also request to approve my Visa asap and send me to US asap. VFS team escalated the same to US Embassy. Finally got a response from US Embassy on 04/28 stating "they are still investigating my case and need some more time and cannot be expedited unfortunately".

My question is I have completed 102 days post attending Visa Interview and I would appreciate if you can throw some light on what kind of validation is going on at this stage and tentatively how much more time i have to wait. Pls note I have never been to overseas before.

US Consulate is performing checks with the Employer and Client and may have requested the Employer for additional documentation and/or information. This delay is pretty standard and you should get an answer soon, please wait and good luck!

KCC may have tried to contact your Employer/Client - Any news on that?
commented May 12, 2016 by rsival (150 points)
Dan,

Thanks for your response. But US Consulate never approached my employer for sure. But they reached my end client after 7 weeks (post 01/29) but I dont know where the mail was sent across as my end client who wants to see me in US asap did not get one nor his team as well. Hence he send a detailed mail to US Consulate on 04/22 with all justifications reg me and also requested for speedy closure of this case. But he received a response on 04/28 stating "they need more time to validate my case".

What else they are validating in this case Dan ? Pls throw me more light if possible.

Dan,

KCC sent a mail to end client and I came to know after 7 weeks only. But end client or his team did not receive one. Hence end client called KCC on 03/31 but no facility or forum available to provide us more clarity within KCC. Hence end client send a detailed mail on 04/22 to US Consulate but received a response on 04/28 stating "need more time to validate my case".

I just responded back to your initial response few mins back as well. Pls check that as well and throw me more light on what else they are validating in my case.

Old days of the administration have passed away for the lives of the people. The judgment of the things and best paper writing service has been ensured for the users of the administration for their personal and vested interests in lives.
