Immigrant Visa Case Number: ISL2009XXXXXXX Case Creation Date: XXXXX 2009 Status Updated Date: 03-May-2013

Administrative Processing

Hello everyone I let you know guys I am still around and praying for everyone please

After 17 Months of Adminsistrative process ... I don't know when this Ap is over May Allah help everyone please on this Horrible process Ammen

I got email from embassy on May 2 Friday ... After sending so many email to them and they never ever replay any one of our emails on right time :(

I don't know how long this process will take but all we have to pray and wait inshallah Allah is great and he know the best for everyone

Here is Embassy email

Dear Sir/Madam,

Our record indicates that the subject immigrant visa case is still pending under administrative processing. Unfortunately, it is not possibel for us to predict as to how long it still may take. However as soon as this process has completed, we will contact the applicant using the contact information he has provided on his form DS-230. If he has not heard from our office after six months, please have him contact our office using the web based email form available on the website of the American Embassy.

Yours truly,

Consular Section, American Embassy

Islamabad, Pakistan

Thank you all please praying for everyone and for me Inshallah we will all hear good news very soon Inshallah

I filed a Writ of Mandamus after 16 months in AP. The Dept of State has 90 days to answer the Writ. I can't tell you if it is a good idea in your case. It's a huge undertaking to sue the government. I can tell you that they finished our case soon after I filed and we were denied our visa based on them saying my husband only married me for immigration purposes.

We got our Notice of Intent to Revoke(NOIR) in record time due to the Writ and we filed our appeal and won. When our case was sent back to the embassy they put us back in AP and we have now spent 10 months there.

AP is what happens most of the time when you deal with the embassy in Islamabad. I know a married couple that spent 4 years in AP. They were finally asked for proof of ongoing relationship, new medical and other documents and he is here now in the United States.

So my husband and I have spent over 2 years in AP. I really don't think I will file another Writ of Mandamus. I think the embassy will only issue the visa when back ground checks are done and they are ready.
