Additional Info / Notes The first set of documents requested(as written in the white slip) were the resume and the questionnaire doc with the responses. I sent the documents the very next day. I received an email on Dec 11th asking me to resubmit the same documents but with more details. I did so the next day(Dec 12th). I got a call from the consulate on Dec 14th that they require an invitation letter from my employer. My immigration attorney mentioned that since I work in US, I don't need any invitation letter instead they will provide me an updated copy of the H1B support letter. My manager also wrote a letter with the description of the project and my role and responsibilities outlined and also why I was critical for the project. I emailed these two letters along with an employment verification document from my employer to the consulate as a response for the invitation letter on Dec 16th. On Jan 10th, 2018 I was asked to submit my passport at the VAC. I submitted the same day. It was still in administrative processing. On Jan 12th, the status changed to Issued. Waiting for my passport to get stamped and be ready for pickup.
