221g Was given on Oct 23rd and they kept passport.  We received a questionnaire about a week later.  Our case had updated on its own many times through January now it only updates when we inquire.

Submitted via courier, I think submission visa ceac is done only at NVC stage.

Let's all hope we hear something soon.

They can do either

return the passport as they either need more security checks or documents or expect to deny the petition

if they ask for more documents,  they may say to return the passport with documents

OR

they can may keep the passport

and how long?    till they are finished with their job (one has been kept a year but that was in Morocco)

They give me back my passport and gave me 221g to submit joint sponsor.... There was someone who got 221g, passport returned and he submitted the required documents same day and after 3days he was called to drop of passport... We r good! I'm sure soon you'd be called to drop of passport for visa issuance

When additional docs are required after your consulate interview, sometimes they keep the passport, other times they return it to you.....mine was returned to me but I was told what was needed for my approval to be granted = a new joint sponsor. 

The most important thing is that you provide the additional information that is needed for your case to move ahead so that you can get approved.

The instructions normally ask you to mail the supporting docs thru the consulate's courier service...I have never heard anyone having to upload anything online.

After you returned the joint sponsor, how soon till you were contacted to return your passport to the embassy for your visa?
