H1B Visa Stamping - 221g - Clearence Time? Amsterdam Consulate

asked Jul 30, 2018 in H1B: Processing Times by nacs_1510 (150 points)

I'm in Petrochemical industry and has an approved I-797 with my employer, I applied from Netherlands Consulate because my family has moved to Netherlands from India  in 2016. After my interview, the VO asked for my CV and gave a yellow slip. I submitted the CV on the same day. Its been torturing 2 weeks since then and still there is no update. I'm not sure what's going on. My wife is back in US and its a horrible time for us. 

Any advise would be greatly appreciated

I'm in a similar boat. I went to Amsterdam Consulate on Dec 17 2018 to get my H1B stamped. I got a slip that was yellowish in colour and I was asked to submit CV. They returned my passport as well. Its been almost a month and I still haven't heard back. Could you tell me how long it took for you to clear the admin processing and get the visa?

It took 4 weeks for my case to get clear and then additional 1 week after the submission of the passport to get the stamp. Did you had a I-797 A or I-797B?

Also, I had to travel to India since my Schengen visa only allowed me to stay for limited period of time

Good luck and stay patient!

Hi Saurabh,

Thank you for the kind words. I have a I-797 A. I'm getting a bit nervous because mine is a bit over 4 weeks. The VO did not say anything also.

 Can you tell me whether it took exactly  4 eels or more.In my case I have just completed 4 weeks.Also my return to the US if delayed will affect my job. Also does the christmas vacation affect the processing? Also when was the status change as mine still is showing the date of interview? What is SLA? Can I hope to get my processing over like yours as my situation is pretty same and I am also a petrochemical engineer like you.

There is no SLA for 221G, it generally takes about 2 months and sometimes more than that. Consulate will get in touch with you if they need any docs from your end.
