Visa applications are adjudicated on a case-by-case basis according to the provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) and applicable federal regulations.  The authority to issue or refuse visas is vested solely in consular officers abroad by section 104(a) of the INA.  For this reason, the Department of State in Washington, D.C. cannot overturn consular decisions.  Our review of Department records confirmed that your husband was interviewed at the U.S. Embassy in Accra, Ghana, on October 20, 2016.  After the interview and a thorough review of his visa application, the consular officer found that the applicant was not eligible for the visa category in which he was applying.  The Petition for Alien Relative (I-130) you filed on his behalf was returned to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for their review.

 

Upon completing their review, USCIS will advise you of their decision.  You will be contacted by USCIS and provided an opportunity to address any issues relating to the petition.  Because the case has been returned to USCIS, the Department of State no longer has jurisdiction over it.  Any questions or concerns you may have should be directed to USCIS at 1-800-375-5283.

so basically, they can't do anything about the consulate's decision.

Hello everyone 

 

i stop updating my timeline once my husband got a denial but anyways I files I-130 on January 29 2016 they received it and he's interviewed on November 28. I was there but had to wait outside for him for 6 hours before they put us on AP. 

 

  • Who did you petition? My husband 
  • What country did you get denied (AP) at? Lagos,Nigeria 
  • What have you done so far? I have emailed the consulte before they returned it, contacted an immigration lawyer for advice, got my senator involved during the denial and after it came back to the uscis and contacted the ombosmen, service requested for update
  • What update do you have so far on your case? Potmac center claimed it in a email that it was at nvc but called nvc and they stated they never received anything

I am sorry for what you just got so are you going to rebuttal? Us embassy put administrative processing  on my case for 9 months then they returned to uscis for revocation but uscis reviewing our case and its reach on july 2017 and it's been more then 180 days for uscis and I am still waiting for their decision how long uscis takes to give you decision?

@Sparrow i pressured the embassy to sent the case over since they had us in AP. I read so many things on here about people cases waiting 90 days and since they told us they couldn’t issue the visa after i reached out to them and my senator i told them to send the case back. Through sending it to the consulate, then Nvc, and Uscis data it took from November 28th 2016 till March 1st 2017 for it to be back. After it returned to Nvc i waited from March 1st 2017- till February 1st 2018( 11 months) to get any response from them. It’s gonna pass 180 for some depending on consulate and what exactly they are looking for, and as you know that returned petitions with recommendations for revocation is not there first priority in line. Now I’m waiting to get the hard copy to get detailed information of what the co stated that she had recommended it for revocation. Once i get that in the mail i will update here
