Application Refused Under Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) 221(g).

On this page:


Refusal under section 221(g) means that essential information is missing from an application or that an application requires additional administrative processing. The consular officer who interviews you will tell you at the end of your interview if your case is being refused under 221(g). The consular officer will either tell you that the case has to undergo administrative processing, or will ask you to submit additional information.

If further information is required from you, the consular officer will tell you how to submit that information. When your visa application is refused under section 221(g), you will be given a written letter notifying you of the visa refusal and will have 12 months from that date to submit the requested documents without having to pay a new visa application fee.If you do not submit the requested documents within one year, your application may be terminated per section 203(eg) of the Immigrant and National Act.

If the Embassy or Consulate requested additional information or documentation from you, you must submit those documents at any authorized DHL document drop-off location.

Administrative Processing

Some refused visa applications may be refused under section 221(g) because further administrative processing is required. The consular officer who interviews you will tell you at the end of your interview if your case is being refused under 221(g) due to required administrative processing. The duration of the administrative processing will vary based on the individual circumstances of each case. Except in cases of emergency travel (i.e. serious illnesses, injuries, or deaths in your immediate family),before making inquiries about status of administrative processing, applicants should wait at least 180 days from the date of the interview or submission of supplemental documents, whichever is later. 

Applicants whose cases are refused for administrative processing may reach out to the Embassy/Consulate to check the status of their cases by clicking the link below corresponding to the Embassy/Consulate where they were interviewed
