221g question / MNL embassy

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering if anyone knows the answer -

 

if the person you're¬†petitioning over to the US receives a 221g slip right after USEM/Manila interview and sends the¬†lacking documents¬†but is still not enough, will the Embassy issue another 221g slip and send back their passport?¬†ūü§Ē

Depends on the cause of the 221(g).

If it's missing something mandatory for the visa itself, then they will leave the visa refused under 221(g) for up to a year. Edit: This means you can submit more documents/evidence to overcome the refusal.

If it's missing something related to the underlying petition (i.e. bona fide relationship/marriage evidence), then they may or may not decide that the petition is invalid and send it back to USCIS to be recommended to be revoked. Depending on the type of petition, USCIS may or may not review it.

Without more detail it is sort of an adult diaper answer ... DEPENDS.

 

What is the document request with the 221g ?

@Hank_:  So there are 2 documents that's needed on the 221g form:

 

(1) my Mom's NBI updated with an AKA - which I know will have no issues

(2) more documents about MY¬†first name change - this is what I'm worried about.¬† ¬†My birth certificate shows a different name than what I currently have (changed my FIRST name via naturalization).¬† Was told by USCIS that usually when having name changed via Naturalization, people go thru "court ceremony" so when receiving the Naturalization certificate an additional document is attached but as for myself, I only went thru "Oath taking" therefore wasn't given that additional piece of paper (I'm guessing more like a name change certificate) -¬† I already have a rough draft of an explaining my situation¬†with all of my documents attached showing my current name being¬†updated on all government issued documents but still worried what IF¬†it isnt enough for the CO @ USEM/MNL.¬† Do you think she will just be issued another 221g if they want more evidence? (Side Note: in contact with USCIS if they can provide me with some kind of document but as you know...it might take another MONTH to get a response from them¬†ūüėę)

My wife her name change during naturalization she was required to complete the (USCIS form) N-4XX - Petition for Name Change.   She received the court notarized form back with her Naturalization Certificate.    You did not receive a copy of this form once approved and notarized by the court?     I would suggest you contact USCIS to request a copy for your records.   Or maybe check the envelope with your Naturalization certificate.

 

The form:

@Hank_ @geowrian Hi Guys!

 

When submitting the all documents to 2go with the submission letter and everything, do we have to resubmit the courier form that US embassy requested on the day of interview (the courier form/2go filled out before the interview)? or do we request 2go Agent to request USEM/MNL to send everything back to them?

 

Thanks~ I dont see instructions for that!

No on the courier form.   But you do need a copy of the email/221g included with the documents.

 

You do have your delivery address registered online?
