My friend applied for H1B Dropbox Stamping at Chennai location. Unfortunately he received 221g letter to attend h1b visa interview. My friend was asked for only interview. Depending on cases, they might called for biometrics too. Below are the sequence of events that he shared with us.
Documents submission: January 6, 2021
These are the documents he submitted for dropbox :
- Passport with valid pages
- DS-160 Confirmation page
- Copy of I-797 Approval.
- Passport photos(two copies)
Case changed to administrative processing: January 8 2021
Documents pickup: January 09, 2021
- They will only return passport along with the 221g form. The 221(g) form will have instruction for your next step. The letter will have your passport number and your case number as well.
H1b Visa interview: January 13, 2021
What Happens And What is the Process at the US Consulate for Visa Interview with 221g letter.
My friend told me that it was very easy process at the US consulate after they called you for interview. You don’t have to book an appointment for stamping. The 221(g) form will have instruction that you can directly go for the interview on any business days. Biometric was not needed for him. So it was very quick and easy for him. In most of the cases i don’t think they will ask for biometrics. I have never heard that they have asked for biometric after dropbox.
