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 email@example.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.
