Translation.. He/she is asking for help, she was called by the US embassy for her oath on ds260. It expired last year, she was interviewed in Feb but was asked to submit several documents and it took longer to get it. Last june 19 the embassy called telling her /him that they will hold the schedule of the oath due to system problems. Until now the embassy have not called again and their system are now ok. They tried calling but the embassy but she was told to wait for the call. She's been waiting for 3 mos now and her medical will expire in Dec, anyone here with the same situation?

Personally I cant help you. All the other guys can help for sure.

I hope i translated ok. :)

You need to call USEM in Manila and determine where you are in reaching your visa. There seems to be a disconnect here and it's taking far to long.

Philippines: (632) 976-8500, (632) 976-8501 or (632) 976-8502, Monday-Friday, 8:00a.m.-8:00p.m. (Except on Philippine and US Holidays).

US: (214) 571-1600, during 8:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. (Eastern Standard Time), Visa Unit number.

hi good day,i just want to know what is escalated to post?thank you and god bless..

It means the case is getting pushed to the front of the line so a set of eyeballs can look at it and make a decision. Usually, a case escalated to post has some time associated with it. Meaning the applicant maybe timing out because of age, or their case was inquired by a congress person or for some other reason. Hard to say what it is. Typically the person inquiring knows what is holding up their case and will know the reason for escalation. It could be at their request.

Why the question?

i log in to my ustraveldocs/cgifederal when i open the provide feedback it says

reason: escalated to post

cooment: 221g-communication unit...

I suspect you are getting a 221(g) for additional clarification or additional documents. You should hear from them soon. You may want to register for myUSCIS as it will be easier to track your case.
