A friend of mine recently appeared for his H1B visa extension interview and the interviewer kept his I797 along with the passport. Now his status when checked online shows up as administrative processing. Did anyone face similar situation? If so, how long did it take to get the passport?

    But typically if they keep passport and I797 it’s a good sign.

    This is pretty normal.

    It may take anywhere from 2 days to an year. One year if your friend’s name is Mohammad Khan.
