I appeared for my H1b visa renewal intereview on Mar 21st, 2012 at New Delhi. I had an arrest record from 2006 for shoplifting. The case was dismissed and from what I understand, even if for some reason the visa officer were to count it as a conviction, it qualified for a one time petty offence exception. I got an H1B stamped in Mar 2010 at New Delhi without any issues. But during my current interview the visa officer kept my passport and the court document and issued a 221g admin processing. I was not asked to submit any documents. My questions are: 1. What exactly is the admin processing for - is the VO trying to get and verify facts about my case or are they trying to do an FBI check to see if there are some other cases or something else? 2. How much time is such processing likely to take? Thanks for your comments.
