Submitting 221(g) Documents

On this page:


The U.S. Embassy may give you a yellow 221(g) Form directing you to submit additional documents or information related to your visa application. Your application will be kept on hold at the Embassy until you submit those documents.

All documents and information requested in a 221(g) letter should be submitted at the nearest Cargo Expreso office within one year from the date you received the 221(g) letter. Failure to submit the required information within one year will result in the suspension of your visa application. You will be required to submit a new visa application and pay all associated fees in order to continue with your visa application process.

If the Embassy requested additional information or documentation from you, you must submit those documents at a Cargo Expreso office or in person at your follow-up interview.
