Status after interview went from AP to READY?

59 posts in this topic Register to Ask a Question

Hi, you guys my husband just had his interview on the 22nd of this month, so like last Thursday

and he got a green slip that said AP (Administrative Processing)

so I've been checking the status on this website http://ceac.state.gov

and its been saying AP and then a paragraph about what AP is and how long it will take.

However, when I checked the status today it changed to this just recently:

U.S. Department of State
IMMIGRANT VISA APPLICATION
Ready

Immigrant Visa Case Number: ISL------------- 01 ISL

Case Creation Date: 21-Mar-2013

Status Updated Date: 26-Aug-2013

Your case is ready for your interview when scheduled at the U.S. Consular section. If you have already scheduled an appointment for an interview, please prepare your documents as directed in your appointment letter and appear at the consulate on the appointed date and time. Otherwise, please wait until you have been notified of your interview appointment. Additional information about how Immigrant Visa interview appointments are scheduled can be found at:http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/info/info_3731.html

For more information, please visit TRAVEL.STATE.GOV

Can someone please tell me what this means? It changed from AP to this READY message. He already had his interview so why is it saying he needs to take it again? I'm confused.
I thought I would ask here since you guys are always so super helpful
Please reply back soon. Thank you so much!

Do you guys know the number for DOS?

1-202-663-1225 call them and wait and hear the machine then press 1 and then press 0 to talk to someone.

Let them know first it said AP now it changed to ready.

They didnt ask you guys for any additional documents right? just gave you the green slip and did they keep your passport?

I had the same after interview. I got AP for two weeks, then READY ( for appointment )

then the next day I got READY ( Case open, wait for two business days ) then the next day I got AP ( this differs from the first AP - this one means you will get ISSUED status soon ) , then the next day I got ISSUED.

Usman did you ever call Dos? Did they give you any information?

Lol I call them almost everyday. Most of the times they Don't tell me anything except for her case is in AP and when its done they will contact her and there is no time limit.

And I asked one time why isn't there a time limit and the DOS guy said that if they did put a time limit on it and they weren't finished with the case within that time limit then they would have to deny the visa.

So that's why for "our" own benefit there is no time limit.

Idk inshAllah we get our visas.
