asked Jan 11, 2017 in H1B: Visa Stamping by anonymous
Hi, I submitted my passport using the dropbox service for H1B Stamping on Dec-30-2016 at Hyderabad. The case was opened on Jan-3-2017 but the status  still shows as Administrative Processing. It has been 7 business days since submitting. is this normal ? Has anyone else experienced the same issue ?

Hello, So how did your experience go? Is it really 221g? I am also in the same situation. Dropbox case was created on may 5th and since has been in administrative processing. On may 17th they called me for finger prints at the consulate and it still is in administrative processing. The whole process has no transparency.

US consulate might take longer time to process an H-1B as administrative processing can take up to a few weeks as the consulate may be conducting additional verification on your case.

Thanks for your response. Is administrative processing the same as 221 G ? I have not received any communication from the consulate that they require additional documentation.
