Hi, Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

My friend applied for H1 at the Chennai Cosulate and was refused. On the refusal
letter there is no reason but says under 221G. Does anybody know what it means?

Thanks in Advance Srini

It's a section of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

To see section 221, try looking at:

http://www.ins.usdoj.gov/cgi-bin/fol...oks.nfo/query=[jump!3A!27act221!2-
7]/doc/{@2944}/hits_only?

It's not very specific, I'm afraid!

Hi,

THIS SHOULD NOT BE CONSTRUED TO BE LEGAL ADVICE. I AM NOT A LAWYER. I DON'T EVEN PLAY
ONE ON TV!

I don't think you will make much of this, but below is what section
221(g) of the Immigration and Nationalities Act says:

"g) No visa or other documentation shall be issued to an alien if (1) it appears to
the consular officer, from statements in the application, or in the papers submitted
therewith, that such alien is ineligible to receive a visa or such other
documentation under section 212, or any other provision of law, (2) the application
fails to comply with the provisions of this Act, or the regulations issued
thereunder, or (3) the consular officer knows or has reason to believe that such
alien is ineligible to receive a visa or such other documentation under section 212,
or any other provision of law: Provided, That a visa or other documentation may be
issued to an alien who is within the purview of section 212(a)(4) , if such alien is
otherwise entitled to receive a visa or other documentation, upon receipt of notice
by the consular officer from the Attorney General of the giving of a bond or
undertaking providing indemnity as in the case of aliens admitted under section 213:
Provided further, That a visa may be issued to an alien defined in section
221(g)(1) (A) or (F) , if such alien is otherwise entitled to receive a visa, upon
receipt of a notice by the consular officer from the Attorney General
of the giving of a bond with sufficient surety in such sum and
containing such conditions as the consular officer shall prescribe, to
insure that at the expiration of the time for which such alien has been
admitted by the Attorney General, as provided in section 214(a) , or
upon failure to maintain the status under which he was admitted, or to
maintain any status subsequently acquired under section 248 of the Act,
such alien will depart from the United States."
