What is this 221g nonsense? What administrative processing are they doing? Does the US consulate usually stamp the Visa or give NOID/NOIR?

Went through hoops and waited so long for h1b approval and now if I go back home to visit parents, I may have to deal with this 221g bs. This is fucking insane

      Rest should .... ... wait a second. You are definately not from CMU SCS. Quite a few name sake CMUs from software engineering institute SEI, cylabs , ini etc. NEVER EVER bring up your CMU credentials asshole. CMU is a abode for humble folks - not for pricks like you.

      I’m not from software engineering, MIS or one of those wannabe CS programs and I don’t wish to reveal mine for privacy reasons. You guys can keep living in your own bubble. Racism and bigotry is ruining this great country. Heck even once a mighty Roman Empire went down in ashes.

      If you're not from CMU-CS, then it's not top 10.

      Sorry, but only CMU CS is top tier.

    • Cisco mcJagger
      CMU-CS ties for the top spot not the top 10. Unfortunate, satyanadea is bringing such shame to CMU by his all mouth replies, no wonder he is getting a 221g etc, the visa officers are not dumb.

      “You have been found ineligible to receive a visa under section 221(g) of Immigration and Nationality act” .. this is a refusal clearly stated on the 221(g) slip. You can abuse and jump up and down as much as you wish, it’s not going to help your case ......... and ugly you are welcome, I read it to you

    ^^ absolutely bullshit.

    221g has nothing to do with degree or salary. Check if your work/resume lists any item mentioned in “TAL” ie technology alert list [1] and/or you have a Muslim name.

    My wife is an Oncologist and she gets it every time she goes for visa processing. Simply follow the process and submit asked docs online ASAP and sit back and relax. Cancel or be ready to reschedule return flight.

    Don’t bother contacting them for at least 4 weeks after document submission because it takes time as work happens in DC. If you contact before then you will get a standard template response. Verification goes to FBI and/or other agencies which do simple name check verification ie see if your name pops up in any ongoing criminal lists or investigations. Nothing complicated but it takes time.

    You will be okay, don’t worry. J1 scholars have to undergo this every single time for many many years.

    All of you guys, please don't confuse OP if you don't have context. Almost everyone gets 221g in the last two years. The more credentialed you are, the longer the process takes. No ETA.

    221(g) is unofficially part of standard US visa application process now. People who are getting visas without it are exception.

    I got 221(g) during simple B1 visa renewal. This after being to US more than 15 times on previous visa, working for Google, having 0 criminal record in 7 generations up and down -not even parking ticket.

    I am nobody special, but if their filter catches a profile like nobody me, then it has to be standard process.

    Exactly — it’s not denial. VO/USCIS needs more info to make final decision. And as said many times before. It’s very common and simple process.

      Lol. MS comp is not decent. In Bay Area you'll be homeless with Microsoft pay.
      Dec 30, 2018
    • Well given they only look at base for visa approvals and not stocks and considering TCS/Infosys paying way less than 100k , I would say MS comp is decent

      Well then I guess half of Bay Area will be full of homeless people....
      Dec 30, 2018
  • If you have a CS degree n decent comp I don't think they are issuing 221g. I got it stamped a couple of months back and no issues
    Dec 30, 20184
    • Microsoft SatyaNadea
      Wrong. Have CS degree working in Microsoft Bay Area with level 4 wage. Got 221g for which I had to wait for a month

      Yeah that's not the case... Even folks from Google and FB are getting 221g and some of them had to wait for months to get their visas stamped.

      Lol dude you fail to see the issue in the post "low compensation" where is the racism here. Do you even know what race is ?, you have reading comprehension issues how did you clear the GRE, did someone else filled in for you on the test.
      Dec 30, 2018
    • Salesforce bunnyoff
      1. H1B petition wouldn’t have been approved in the first place if compensation was an issue.
      2. You are making denigrating remarks about India. Also assuming I’m from there. LOL. That’s so lame, racist and idiotic.
      3. Making assumptions about H1Bs looking at H1B talent around you. You work at Cisco — eew!
      4. FWIW - The latest spelling bee champ is an India. In fact almost all finalists were Indians.
      5. I’m sure you have not appeared for GRE coz avg Americans have high school degrees and still boasting about being the first one in the family to graduate. Really!

      And so on.

      In sum, take your racism, frustration and anger to your home — it has no place here!
      Dec 30, 2018
    • Cisco / MktgChulla
      Lol Fack you. I didn't refer to India anywhere in my post. H1b is for world wide talent - why are you assuming India. Btw all off the bullet points are just your opinion man, so just shove it up that hairy hole of yours. Btw you realize you are at Salesforce, it's all sales there no engineering.

      Chulla guy is probably getting rejected from tier 2, tier 1 and tier 3 companies. He can’t get in to decent company and this is his way of taking out the frustration. Leave him alone. Go on ....

      @Chulla seems to be a self hating hypocrite from India/Pakistan.

      I bet he’s not an ABCD because his English sucks so bad. He seems to be fresh off the boat, started showing the finger to his fellow immigrants as soon as he got his GC.

      Go get a real job @Chulla, blaming immigrants for your incompetence to get a decent job won’t help.

    Lola you just restated what I said and you called my post bullshit. Let me spell it out for you. Sometime if you have a Muslim name, sometimes if you are from India (h1b), sometime if you are on tal you get 221g. Which means you are not welcome

    Oh right, you don’t know the spelling of India. You spelled it as “endiya”

    Speaking of H1Bs - looks like your CEO is a huge fan of them including many other top valley CEOs. They surely prefer skilled talent over idiots like you.
