I am in New Delhi for visa renewal (I have been on H1 for 10 years now - that's a different story - you can read that in my other thread). I submitted my passport on May 18 and still haven't got it back. The consulate called today for additional fingerprinting. I fear it may be a security check (based on name) like I have had in the past in Vancouver Consulate (2 years ago - it took 2 weeks then). I don't understand how many fingerprints are required - this is my 5th finger printing (2 for H1Bs and 3 for I-485). The systems are certainly not synced up and this is quite frustrating.Has anyone had this experience? How long will it take to get the visa stamped - 2 weeks or 2 days???

Apparently, the fingerprinting was not for security background check but for an earlier computer error. I got my visa on the same day of fingerprinting when I requested the consular.
