I found this definition of the 221g here:  https://dakar.usembassy.gov/immigrant_visas.html:   

"At the end of the interview, you will be told whether you have established your eligibility for the IV [immigrant visa].  If you have not brought a required document such as a police clearance or your medical examination, you will be given a 221g letter with instructions on how to schedule a second interview once you have all of your required documents.  If you have not established your eligibility for an IV, your case will be referred to the consular section's eligibility review unit for further evaluation."

 

I'm not certain why they din't give you the slip at the interview, but your medical file is now under review, so I believe that's why it went into AP.  Hopefully you will hear back from them soon!

Ma Camara,

 

Thanks for the reply. It's the same with me. Where you given the exact date to go back? When the 2 weeks will be due I mean.

Thanks for the reply. It went to AP right after the interview. Then I explained that the medical wasn't ready by then and they asked me to bring my results the following Wednesday which I did. I was given the green slip immediately after I handed over my results starting that I should go back in 2 weeks. My passport was also retained.

Hi Gee S,

 

I hope that you will have it soon. It's a good thing that they have your passport and told you 2 weeks, which means they plan to get you the visa, if all checks out.  So they are just taking their time to finalize your file.  

 

To note, for some embassies, either today or tomorrow is a federal holiday (Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday); for Algeria, they take it today.  So that slows down things a bit.  

 

I know it's frustrating, but hang in there!  My fiance had an approved interview on Nov 28th and it took 45 days to get the visa issued, and we are still waiting for his passport to be sent to the courier for pick up.  I had to contact my congressman's office to get a reply on the status (I've posted elsewhere about that).  But hopefully yours will be processed, shortly.

 

Keep us posted!  Best wishes!
