My fiance had her interview today. she was given a letter that said "temporarily refused" my heart nearly stopped !!!
I showed it to the clerk, she says, it's under "Administrative Processing"
What is this "Administrative Processing" BS ?
I never heard of this. They used to to background check. Is that the same thing as background check?
she has never traveled to US. She worked as a Physician for 10 years, in Iran.
I really want this step to be over so that I can marry her in the US as soon as possible.
The laws of Immigration to US are generally inhumane, and borderline abusive. I went to US under very easy circumstances, I won my greencard in lottery, some 20 years ago, and my visa was issued the same day. I could travel from UAE to US the same day if I wanted to.
True, US government uses a bunch of vague and unhelpful terms but this is by far the most confusing term I have heard. Her case has already been in Administrative Processing for 4 months, unless you don't count USCIS, DHS, CSC, NVC as US gov administration. What is this extra step for? What does it try to accomplish?
They don't say how long does it take. Why can't they simply say how long does it take? Is it a matter of days, weeks, months, years?
this is frustrating beyond comprehension.
