If an 0-1 visa has been sent back to USCIS for possible revocation by a consular officer after the initial approval, is the person allowed to travel to the states while they are processing it? It's been 6 months now.Also, is refiling a valid possibility if visa has been pending for seemingly way too long and how does refiling seem to consular officers? And can a consular officer, in this case in finland, try to revoke the same visa twice?
It can take up to 2 years for the process to go through CIS from the time the Embassy tells you they are sending it back.
Your employer can withdraw that petition and file a new one.
Did the consul give you any idea why they doubted the validity of the petition?
