I need your experience and guidance to understand the situation I am currently in. Appreciate your time and help in this regard.
Below is the timeline and additional information.
I have been with the same company for the last 6+ years. This is the 3rd time with same company, same visa. It’s a FTE and no client work and is a Product based company. I haven’t got any 221g for the last 2 times and this time also until now.
Dec 24: Dropped documents
Dec 27: case created
Jan 2: Administrative Processing
Jan 3 - 4PM: Application Received (why this status changed back to received?)
Jan 3 - 4:30PM: Administrative Processing
No further update after that.
I was told that these days, some cases are randomly selected for additional background check and/or technology clearance by department of state, which can take ~2wks and for some cases it can take more than 2 weeks. Mine is already 2 weeks passed, still haven’t received any status update.
- Are there cases with being in Dropbox for more than 2 weeks in AP?
- How do I know if I have missed any email update or phone call to submit any additional documents without interview?
- How do I know if they call for interview: only through email that passport ready for pickup and ceac website status still shows Administrative Processing.
I have also seen there are cases waiting for more than 2 months.
Thanks a lot for any insight on these items from your experiences.
I have return flight tonight from Hyderabad. Not sure even if visa is issued today, whether I can pick passport and leave tonight.
