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.
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?
