Also, I forgot to mention I was asked to submit an I864a and proof of current sustained income from the petitioner. What are the documents to prove current sustained income? Petitioner is unemployed. Why asked for I864 from joint Sponsor and I864a from the petitioner at the same time?The Petitioner is not using asset and the joint sponsor is not a relative and not a household member. Do they really asked for both the I864 and I864a together? Thanks. Any comment from anybody please?

Yes they can and sometimes do ask for both 864 and 864a. The petitioner just needs to fill out the 864 completely.

Ya this is sort of silly. Even after USEM receives the documents requested it can be upwards of a month before issuance. Patience is the best approach.

July 20================== 221g documents received at USEM

Status---------------------------------AP

What do they usually do after they receive your documents? Are they gonna open and give it to the consul who did your interview, begin the review process and

attach it to your file? Or they wait and put together all the 221g documents they received until they reach a certain time frame to open and review them? Any

comment out there? Thank You and good luck to all of us. Hope we'll all get our visas soon.

Your probably looking at about a month. My wife's documents were received on June 23rd. She received a issued Monday and maybe she will receive the visa around Friday as I choose the Mall of Asia. Initially they entered it as a update when they received the documents and then it seemed like there was nothing happening as you can see from my timeline. Good Luck!
