HI EVERYONE,

I HAD MY INTERVIEW AT ISLAMABAD AMERICAN EMBASSY 4TH SEPTEMBER 2009 AND AND CO TOLD ME THAT EVERYTHING LOOKS FINE WITH UR CASE BUT WE NEED SOME ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESSING AND SHE GAVE ME A BLUE PAPER SAYING THAT YOUR CASE HAS BEEN TERMPORARLY REFUSED FOR FURTHER ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESSINGAND THE MINIMUM TIME IS SIX WEEKS AND THERE IS NO TIME LIMIT THEY DID NOT GAVE ME ANY LIST OF MISSING DOCUMENTS I DONT KNOW WHY THEY PUT ME ON AP WHILE EVERYTHING WAS COMPLETE AND I WAS HAVING EVERY LITTLE PAPER PICTURES OF MARRIAGE TOO, AND SHE KEPT MY PASSPORT AND ALSO GAVE ME ANOTHER PAPER THAT HAS AMEX ADDRESS OF MY CITY AND THIS PAPER HAVE A STICKER ON IT WITH A SERIAL NUMBER AND SHE TOLD ME THAT WE WILL ISSUE U VISA IN 2 WEEKS TO 6 WEEKS, BUT WHEN I HEAR THREADS HERE I GETS WORRIED THAT OTHR PEOPLE AP GETS LONGER AND LONGER AND DONT STOP. I HOPE I WILL HAVE AP OVER LIKE CO TOLD ME. CAN ANYONE TELL ME HOW I CAN CHECK THE STATUS OF MY AP AND HOW I CAN EMAIL ISL FOR MY CSAE I ONLY KNOW THAT WHEN EMAILING ISL I WILL HAVE TO PUT MY ISL CASE NUMBER IN THE SUBJECT LINE WHAT I DONT KNOW WHAT TO TYPE IN THE EMAIL AND WHAT INFORMATIONS I GIVE THEM IN THAT EMAIL ABOUT MYSELF AND MY WIFE SO THEY WILL SEND ME A REPLY.
PLUS THAT BLUE FORUM SHE GAVE ME IT ONLY SAYS THAT I AM IN ADMINISTRATIVE BUT IT DOES NOT SAY 221g. AND ON THE BLUE FORUM IT ALSO SAYS THAT I WILL HAVE TO SUBMIT MY PASSPORT TO ISL ONCE AP IS OVER BUT THEY ALREADY HAVE MY PASSPORT THIS IS ANOTHER THING MAKES CONFUSION. ITS NOT EVEN A WEEK YET AM IN AP SHOULD I CONTACT THEM BY EMAIL YET OR NOT OR I WAIT UNTILL 6 WEEKS PASS. headbonk.gif
PLEASE EVERYONE PRAY FOR ME THAT MY AP OVER AND I GET VISA . insha Allah
Please helpsmilie.gif

My husband was in AP for about 4 weeks after his K3 interview we then had his CR1 interview and he received his CR1 visa two weeks after that. So at this point I would say there is nothing to be concerned about smile.gif

Its been 2 weeks now since my interview and no responce from ISL Embassy or DOS. Tensions Increasing day by day. when my case was at NVC i was not much worried because i knew that they were processing faster with papers and they took just maximum 2 weeks for the next steps and then we provide all the papers and send to NVC and then after a month they again ask us for more papers i mean they takes Next step after a month this is fast.
