H4 Stamping Admin processing - Form 221g blue slip issued

Hi Anil / Other moderators,

My wife attended visa interview today for H4 stamping (27th Nov 2018) at Chennai US Consulate and she was given 221g sheet (blue slip) for administrative processing.

Her passport was not given back though. We are very worried on this situation.

What is the normal processing time for administrative processing? She had previously F2 stamping. Pls advice.

The official timeline that US embassy publishes is 8-10 weeks waiting time.
But, usually, the admin processing can take anywhere between 7 days to a year.

As per my opinion, in your case, you can expect a response in about a month.
