I applied for NIV visa with my dad, mom, elder brother and my younger brother.
The embassy told us we'd get the visa in a few working days.
The next day, they let us know that our cases are going necessary (background check) administrative processing.
Interview day: 23 May.
Last date update: 24 May.
It's been more than 4 months now. Still no response.
And no updates.
My father has been travelling to the us since 1998. He's never faced a problem like this before ever.
This time on his business exhibition, on a business visa, he agreed on taking mom and my brothers too,but of course, on tourist visa/visit visa. They didn't ask for any additional documents or information.
Any advice?
We've tried emailing the embassy multiple times and the response is always the exact same thing. Do they even actually read the emails? They tell us that our cases have been updated but there has been no update on the date on CEAC.
Ah, I'm losing ohope each day passes.
Plus, I've read that the time taken on administrative processing has decreased, cause apparently some kind of innovation or upgrade or better systemised work goes on now in their work, compared to the years back. Is that true?

Hello All,


i had my I-730 Petition (REFUGEE ASYLEE RELATIVE PETITION) interview on 1st June at the Islamabad embassy.

the officer told me that i will get my passport by the end of July but still the Case is Under Admin Processing.

does anyone know if this takes this long or is it just the I-730 petition that is taking this long.

i have read people getting Visa mostly after 3 or 4 Months of AP.

let me know your suggestions if any one had the same experience of I-730 and how does it goes.

will be waiting for your suggestions.



John, Peterson.

My dear friends

I wished I was never on this forum, but I am because of AP(administrative processing)... Well ; my history was quite diabolical! ...so i started a new thread. :)
I had applied for a B1B2 visa in april 2006, i got into AP...and on 21 st december 2006 i received my visa, so i visted the US in 2006 and then again in 2009, the visa was valid till 2011.

On 15 th june 2016 i applied again, but now things are more fishy, as I work for a company that works for ministry of defense pakistan, the VO told me...

VO: i approve u the visa but do you have your CV?
Jan: no its a tourist visa , thats why i did not bring my CV?
VO: ok send it to me ...sorry you will have to go through AP?
Jan : mam this is like last time, i had to wait 8 months ? This time I have booked a package tour with yellow stone park ...i will loose my deposit?

VO: shrugs her shoulders...

My question here is
1. that do they have any records of people who have cleared AP before, or they start a fresh.
2. Iread the AP explained and they send your name to different departments, CIA, FBI, dept. Of commerce! And the dept of polliferation..now if my organization is in their list of polifiriation....will I Get a visa ?

If i am not a theive? Or never have been? How can they put me in a catagory where they think i will do theft? This is just absurd...

Please let me know your opinions.....

PS i have already missed my vaccation...
