Hi all,

I gave my interview, and with the passport was given the denial that Visa cannot be granted as there is no proof of ongoing relation. Immediately the case was filed in for revoke and we protested at the DOS, and in response were told that embassy has put our case under 221g, pending submission of documents and oath. everything happened withing a period of 1 month, the denial, protest and the sec 221 g.

Could anyone please help as in what this means, what should i be doing, and what documents should proof the ongoing relation and what shall be the time frame in this scenario.

Thank You

They're providing you an opportunity to overcome the 221(g) with additional evidence. If I were you I'd send them a truckload of evidence - everything you've got. This is probably your last chance to stop the petition from being returned to USCIS.

The timeframe should have been outlined in the notice you got. If it wasn't then presume that you have very little time, and try to get the evidence to them within the next few weeks.


12/15/2009 - K1 Visa Interview - APPROVED!

12/29/2009 - Married in Oakland, CA!

08/18/2010 - AOS Interview - APPROVED!

05/01/2013 - Removal of Conditions - APPROVED!

Thank u for your reply, actually i was told earlier that the petition has been sent to DOS, but then we filed the protest and finally were told, its under sec 221g. I would be going with everything i have by this thursday. and there was no time frame mentioned, just appear at the embassy with all the paperwork in person on any working day at 8:30. this is very much confusing

It would be best if your fiance can submit the ongoing proof of relationship IN PERSON with you at the embassy to show them another visit.

Bring sworn affidavits... letters from both families and friends attesting to your genuine relationship and of course every email, phone record and chat you have.

I was asked to explain hw me met, and that was when we were working together in USA, and same shift so came closer. Met family, decided to get married, I was on J1, got the waiver, and started the petition for K1. thay did not ask for any documents then, as had submited them at VFS nearly 2 weeks prior to interview. I had the phone records, letters, g-mail chats, facebook posts, her travel itenary to India, our engagement pics that happened in India last december and other pics from Agra, Shimla etc. I was denied the visa. then i protested at DHS, and suddenly got the reply after embassy telling me that my file has gone to USA, that now my case is under sec 221g, that is submission of documents and oath.

please help what other documents can i show and what is this case all about

from what you said you case has no red flags....but they might have told you why they denied visa ...i mean reason with detail....any mismatch in information you said in interview and evidence you submitted to them on paper....please work on why they felt that this is not genuine relationship....once you rule out solid and precise reason of your refusal....anybody can give you advice

Immigration race- the reason i was given was that there is no proof of ongoing relation, where-in i presented the telephone records, gmail chats, engagement pics which happened just 3 months before the interview. The CO asked me where is my fiancee now, that she came to india, and i told her she flew back to resume her job. rest no other reason was given for the denial. This is why i am bit confused.
