    221g green slip for j2 visa
    Hi I appeared for a J2 visa interview on 27th July 2012 at the US embassy in Seoul,South korea.My husband is already in the US with a J1 visa since April 2012. As my PhD defense was due on May 2012, I did not move with him and applied separately and am planning to move in Aug. However, the VO retained my passport, gave me a green 221g form and asked a couple of documents by email. To note that my husband also went through 221g AP during his application time. I wonder if I am applying as his dependents with no intention to work in the US during my stay why am I being subjected to 221g? They have asked for sponsor letter from US... isn't the DS-2019 form issued by the university confirming sponsorship? I am very worried, please can u tell me how long this process will take?My student visa in south korea will expire in Aug and hence very very worried.Thanks in advance.

    Hey, same case with me. I completed my Ph.D. from Germany and wanted to move to US on a dependent Visa(H4). My husband is already there on H1B. I really do not understand why they had given a 221g green slip to me and asked for additional documents.
    Could you please be so kind to update me about your case. In how many days after document submission you got clearance and received your stamped passport.

    Help is highly appriciated.

    Thanks a lot
