  1. Dear all, I am an applicant of an IV based on an approved spousal petition. The US embassy refused to issue the visa, refused to issue a notice of denial. Verbally advised to pursue a waiver with the USCIS. I have a history of a previous removal from the US based on an overstay of a nonimmigrant visa. The removal was a result of overstaying a VD granted by the immigration judge. As per ICE, the administrative and criminal immigrations charges were 237(a)1(B). The removal occurred more than 10 years ago, I have remained outside of the US for more than 10 consecutive years, which demonstrate that the inadmissibility bar of the removal and the overstay has ran out. Numerous emails were sent to the embassy requesting a clarification on the embassy’s findings and the statute on which my visa was refused but all the replies only reiterated the need of a waiver of inadmissibility but not what the final determination of inadmissibility was made by the consular officer. Their last reply said that my case had been refused under section 221g and that I was informed to submit the waiver to the USCIS. The I-130 was filed on 2009, I was scheduled for an interview on 2014, then rescheduled again on 2018. CEAC status hanging on READY from 2014 until now... My question is , can a consulate refuse a visa under 221g and advise to pursue a waiver and all of this done “Verbally”? no notice of denial, no indication on which law statue bars me? The initial 221g was issued on my interview day to submit additional documents. Any help is much appreciated 👍🙏
