Additional Info / Notes 5th feb dropbox initially, submitted on got passport with blue form 3 weeks later. 3rd Feb visa interview was asked designation , salary and client . I am FTE so i said no client, but VO kept pressing abt the client. Also asked why the company needs someone from India for this work. I explained best i could, but he didnt want to listen. bad experience. After being FTE with the same (big 4) company for 7 years ..Phew! At the end, he said he will put my case on "admin processing" and he will hold on to passport. Feb 26th Got email from Chennai admin asking for documents. Replied to the email saying will get back after discussing with employer. Got an automated response. Feb 27th Sent the documents but didnt get any acknowledgement email. March 6th Was worried abt not receiving an acknowledgement so sent the docs again . No response again March 17th Sent an email to chennai admin asking if the received my documents March 18th Received a response(surprise) from chennai admin saying documents received and processing going on stopped checking status everyday, decided to check only on mondays, March 26th got an email on that the documents are collected (by vfs). checked the CEAC status and it said "Issued" March 28th picked up passport on 28th from VFS location. Note: The case number on the 221g form didnt work for me on the CEAC website, but the DS 160 application id worked.
