Consular Interview Completed, Visa Approved, But Visa Status Shows Administrative Processing

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi

I had my CR1 interview 2 days back at the consulate and the officer advised that he is going ahead and approving the visa.

On checking the status of my visa it now shows Administrative Processing. Is this something I should be worried about? I wasn't given any slip or advised of any refusal.

Others who went through the same route advised they got their passports with the visa back in 2-3 days time.

@BNepal86, why would you want to choose the delivery location again? You would have already done that when you scheduled for getting your fingerprints done, right?

@Morganalmonshid94, is that applicable to Immigrant visas too? I thought the system issues were affecting only non-immigrant visas. How sure are you that the systems issues is causing this delay?

The issue is affecting all visas, immigrant or non-immigrant...

These are the stories I have found at this stage :(

THIS IS POSTED ON ALL FOREIGN EMBASSY WEBSITES.......MY FIANCE AND I ARE STUCK IN ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESSING BECAUSE OF THIS::

IMPORTANT: The Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs is currently experiencing technical problems with our overseas passport and visa systems. This issue is not specific to any particular country, citizenship document, or visa category. We apologize for the inconvenience and are working urgently to correct the problem and restore full operability.

Passport applications accepted overseas or after May 26, 2015 are affected by this delay.

June 14th

There was a problem with the biometric system... Hardware issue. So, the biometrics are sent after your interview. They can't authorize a printing of a visa until you are entered into the database, unfortunately. ?

Q: How long before you restore full system functionality?

JUNE 19, 2015
Technological Systems Issue
Visa Systems Issues

  • The Bureau of Consular Affairs is in the process of resolving technical problems with our visa systems. Biometric data is not yet processing properly to allow embassies and consulates to perform security checks required to issue visas.

  • More than 100 experts across the country are working on this problem 24/7. We are pursuing a variety of solutions. This week, nearly 750 temporary or seasonal workers who had been issued visas in the past were issued new visas in Mexico, and we have issued another 1,500 visas globally for urgent and humanitarian travel. We continue to look for ways to facilitate travel as we work to restore the systems to full functionality.

  • We deeply regret the inconvenience to travelers and recognize the hardship to those waiting for visas, and in some cases, their family members or employers in the United States.

June 20th

Update this morning - saying once up will take weeks to issue the Visa...

Nonimmigrant visa applicants who submitted their DS-160 online application prior to June 9, 2015, should plan to attend their scheduled appointment. You should note, however that your application will take two to three weeks to process. If you will require your passport for travel to a country other than the United States during this time, you must notify the consular officer at your interview.

Hi Brendan,

Where did you get the June 20th update from?

Sorry I got this from a post from someone else on here. Was posting links with articles so as the stories had more credibility. This one here I am not sure about. Maybe try placing it in google and seeing if it comes up on a news or embassy site on that day . Sorry
