Please see more deatils via the below link.  You must register in advance.  Please spread the word with others not on Visa Journey as well as to any contacts you have in the advocacy community.  I think this is a good place to raise issues with the disparities in processing timelines as well as the lack of customer services via the call in numbers.  I would discourage people using this as an opporunity to discuss specifics of their case but to raise the larger issues.

Hi everyone! I need your advice on this one please. I'm 25, Filipina. I'm visiting my boyfriend on June this year on a tourist visa. We'll only do some sight seeing and meet his family. It will be our first time meeting each other. I'm entitled for a month long vacation at that time as per company rules. I'm currently working as a sales representative in Abu Dhabi for three years now. I don't have enough funds by that time maybe around 3000USD only so we decided that my boyfriend will be sponsoring the whole trip. He can provided the necessary documents needed.
First question, will the embassy get in touch with him with the documents?
I will have my own documents ready by that time too proving my ties here in UAE. What are our chances so our visa will be granted? Please help me. Thank you

arrowUNLOCK the N-400 Expedited Naturalization via Section 319b Thread

It doesn't make sense to lock a thread because it is old and someone recently posted in it - especially when the recent post is on topic of the subject thread.  If we are going to do that, then there are countless other threads that would need to be locked.  There are 715 pages of threads on this sub forum - are we going to lock every thread that hasn't had a post in 2 years?  Makes zero sense.


There are very few places to find 319b information for people not associated with the military.  Just because a thread is only pertinent to a few people, doesn't mean it isn't important. 


For any moderator - please unlock the N-400 Expedited Naturalization via Section 319b thread.

arrowInterview Outcome At Abu Dhabi US Embassy 2/17/2015

Today was my fiancee's interview at the US Embassy in Abu Dhabi at 8:00 AM this morning UAE time.  As far as how long until her actual interview took place and when she submitted her DS-160 confirmation page and finger prints I'm not sure but she was home by 12:00 PM and called me with the results.


According to my fiancee her interview went very well.  She was asked to submit copies of her birth certificate, police report, NBI, my I-134 w/supporting financial documents, my dads I-134 (joint sponsors) w/supporting documents, and a notarized copy of my divorce decree  (they kept all).  They didn't ask her for her to show any proof or evidence of our relationship, or evidence of our on-going relationship (no pictures, chat logs, receipts, etc).  All they did was question her about our relationship; how and when we met, when did we meet in person, was I ever married, do I have any children, what was my previous job, etc.    


She said overall the female consulate was very nice and the actual interview took place in a booth through a window which lasted about 10-15 minutes.  She was never called into a back room to be interviewed like some other people were.  


After the interview was over she was handed back her passport and told that everything looks good BUT she needed to go back to the embassy at 2:00 to submit her translation paper for her police report and her passport so they can process her visa.  She forgot to get a translation for her police report so they wouldn't approve her visa.


She was handed a blue slip that said visa denied because she was missing documentation but checked on the paperwork was to return and bring both the translation for her police report and her passport, so after she got home and called me with the news she went and got the translation paper and returned back to the embassy around 2PM and submitted her passport and her translation paper.  She was then handed a white paper saying "Thank you for submitting documents as requested during your previous interview.  Your case will be reviewed by a consulate officer who will make the final determination on your case.  Your passport may be picked up at 2:00 PM next Monday as indicated above.  Please bring this form at the time of pickup."


When I go on the CEAC web page and do a Visa Status Check it says "Administrative Processing".  Will she eventually be approved?

Again, according to my fiancee everything went very well all for her forgetting to bring the translation for her Abu Dhabi police report.  The consulate told her the she needed it so when they look at in in the USA they can understand what it
