However, today (3rd business day, 5th day since interview), the lady at VFS told her something new that has essentially got us both very confused and down.
She said that her system says that they are "performing a background check on her paperwork" and told her to come back next week. My fiance asked her if this meant it was under AP, and what they were missing. The VFS lady told her she is not sure if it is AP, and they will email her when they find out.
The VFS Passport tracker still says "Under Process at the US Consulate." We know we have nothing to worry about since our application is 100% true and accurate and we are not hiding anything - however, after a wait of 8 months, we are anxious to be with each other and every single day is painful to go through. And, with VFS's record for emailing us, we know we are probably never going to hear back from them either.
CAN ANYONE HELP US FIGURE OUT WHAT IT GOING ON? Can DOS help here? Who do we call to find out what is going on. What do we do?
I wouldn't be freaking out if it was just a delay of processing to send the passport to her, but now, with this new "background checking," I'm worried that our application has gone into AP, and we don't even know why. Our wedding is 45 days away, and I have spent over $15,000 in deposits and payments to book all the vendors, venue, band, DJ, caterer, flowers etc. - ALL of which is non-refundable.
