Default Multiple Security Checks

Hi,

I have been in India for H1B / H4 Visa in 2006. I was stopped for some Security clearance for nearly 3 Months.

My Visa said "Security Clearance Recieved" ( a bad black stamp on your face)

I am planning to visit India again in Jan 2009. I am still waiting for Advance Parole docs. If I don't get it, I am planning to travel and get my H1B/H4 stamped to re-enter USA( I have a valid h1B till 2011) .

So my question :
Is there is a chance to get struck again on Security clearance basis ?
In other words, "How long is the security clearance certificate (oh ya, it is like a major award for you these days) valid?" ..

I am hoping I will NOT be asked for security clearance again . IF there is a risk, I will avoid going for it and wait for my Advance Parole docs.

Thanks
Ibrahim

This time there is something more too, there is something called PIMS Check, which is petition information management system check , called administratvie clearance check, google for PIMS Delay.

I would strongly advice wait for AP and then leave country.... do not take chances with pims check, security check, etc etc check.

Maaan it is becoming difficult nowadays.... dont know what other checks they are going to bring.

Oh my God.. I thought since I got my clearance last time, It should be easy this time.

Why are they so freaked out

Sundar,
May I know when did you apply for your AP extension and at which Service center.

I applied it on Oct 10th at NSC.

Would you be surprised if they go through the same security clearance again? I wouldn't!

Like others have mentioned, I would suggest that you wait for AP before traveling.
