221g slip color

16 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

i have a question to those that replied to the OP:

you all kept mentioning the color of the 221g slip - is there any real credence to the color?

is blue better than other colors - green etc?

what do the colors mean? how many are there?

does the meaning vary from country to country - or all the same?

TIA:)

The 221g letters in Ecuador were printed out on white bond paper directly from a printer at the CO's fingertips.

Yes, but the colors are country specific. Knowing whether the slip was blue or white, for China, let's us know whether it's a request for documents or a hard denial with case being sent back to USCIS. 221g itself is just a catch-all section referred to in pretty much all denials whether the Consulate is only waiting for something missing, something new they want to evaluate or their decision is, in their minds, final.

ok, the question remains - do we know the meaning of the colors in different countries?

it seems that this Admin Processing is the one time that can be without a definite ending - and appears to cause us the most pain because we dont know

I guess im asking the larger VJ community....wouldnt it be worth while to understand the differences - so atleast if one of us in that position, we would atleast have some level of comfort knowing "why" based on the color...

we? no

I only pay attention to the ones in CHINA

as 221G has different usage there, compared to other IV units across the world.

You could compile a list, though, if you'd like, by studying posts in the http://www.visajourney.com/forums/forum/113-waivers-i-601-and-i-212-and-administrative-processes-221g/ forum, putting pen to paper in compiling that list.

darnell

suire - give me the china info - and i'll start the list

i'll take info from whomever wants to give it.

but it will need to come from those in the know - and will provide info to those who may have to lean on it.

but i do believe that "we" on Vj dont know the meaning of the colors - or perhaps we havnt found out the meanings.

if you want to share the knowledge - i will gladly take it from you.

Here is a link to this very same topic about Islamabad....

http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/201300-interview-colors/

I've also seen different colors issued to members from pakistan and it seemed to only matter What was said on the form not the color itself.

But other countries do use specific colors for different things as previously mentioned.

First 221g notice colors have NOTHING to do with AP.

Second, most members don't care about any notice colors except for the country in which they or their loved one will (or have) interview for a visa.

We usually ask WHAT the notice actually says, instead of the color. It's far more important. The color tells only a very small part of any story behind a notice.

Further, even from China, I've seen somebody get a blue 221g notice accompanied by both a yellow and a pink notice requesting various things. If you want to compile a list, have at it. IMO, it will be of little use.

@Eabbas and @pushbrk

thanks to you both for your input

i will review what you have given also; just trying to provide some method to the madness - in the same way we want to analyse why it takes the USCIS so long to get around to doing a 15 min review of our cases.

I will see if there is any need to go on with this once i read what has already been said...if its fruitless - it was still worth asking the question in my opinion.

as they say - if you dont ask - you dont get - and it applies here too

dont get me wrong - but i thought you were offering help.

thanks

No, not really.

I was trying to point you in the right direction, though, to get some idea of what's what, with that url.

AP is not usually a piece of a 'soft denial' with the 221G, back in China - I've no idea how it works, AP, at all.

I do know that a Chinese Communist Party FORMER MEMBER or CURRENT Member will go through a mandatory administrative processing time, after the interview..

I do remember reading that AP occurs after an interview, successful one or not.

For MENA countries, males usually go through a period of AP..

IMO, 221G and AP are not related.

in China, the 221G is in 2 categories - 'unable to issue visa, sending back to DoS/USCIS' and 'hey - give us more info'.

Usually, the request for more info is on a blue slip, and the 'send back' notice is on a white slip.

But, that's all I know, man.. Dig Deep in that forum, you should be able to compile a list rather quickly, simply from READING the topics there (easier from a PC, btw).

Good Luck with yer compilation !!
