Thank i guys.  He has rejected 3 times before.  But this time the consular told him everything with paper is ok . But the weird thing is when I double check the status online . it says Refused and the last updated time is May 5th . We are at may 28th . Is that weird?

Looks like a refusal

While retaining the passport is generally a positive, there have been instances of passports being returned without a visa and accompanying an explanation.

Hello guys , 

 

The pervious case number was the old one . I just double check my visa status online by putting the new case number . It says " Application Recieved " . Interview was very good and consular said everything sounds ok and he kept my passport. Screenshot_20190528-112103_Chrome.thumb.jpg.ca4ec04025e811d5d22edb31b1629616.jpg

Thanks for all of you.

What paper? 

B1 usually doesn't require any papers, only the ds160 and interview.

What sort of business is he in? Tend to think of IT but that may be a stereotype. I would imagine the standing of the Employer makes a difference.

Right so far we have a case that could be either you or your brother, and could be either a B1 or H1.  Any more possibilities coming?

B1 in lieu of H1b?
