221(g) green slip issued at Mumbai US Consulate

Asked 12 months ago - Chicago, IL

I applied for visitor visa on 3rd June to attend the conference at US , this conference was been sponsored by my organization (Pharmaceutical). My parents are legal US citizen and my immigration file under F3 category (april 2006) has been kept by my parents. After interview the consulate officer gave me this Green slip and asked me to e-mail documents which i all ready sent. I do not know why I been asked for this Admin Processing where 15 of my company personals got the visa easily. How long will it take and after this what are the chances of getting visa or denial of visa. Pl help me as Its been more then 90 days.

Additional information

I have clearly stated during my interview that I am going to attend the conference and going alone leaving my Twin daughters and my wife in India. The consulate officer was also convinced and she told me that she wanted to issue the visa but as duel intent on this case she needed to have more documents so when my petition for F3 case comes, there would not be any problem. But then after she gave me this Green slip with 221 (g) slip. I had my interview on 4th June.

    Answered . The issue is likely the pending immigration petition. The consulate may deny your B-1 application completely or they may grant it for a limited period of time. Argument for you to make is that your F3 case has 2006 date and visa bulletin shows current case date in 2003.

    Answered . Sadly even we cannot know for sure what will happen. But they are clearly worried that you will not want to return to India. 221g can take a long time. Good luck!
