Does anyone know if Administrative Processing

What I mean to say....

For example: if your spouse travelled outside their country for a two week vacation somewhere, does the Department of State then investigate with those countries (like verification of entry and exit into those countries).

The reason I ask is that my husband travelled to Thailand once and India twice. But the because those countries are so bureaucratic, if they were ever requested information, I doubt they would respond to an inquiry.

Yes actually they do. This is what got my husband and I into the 5.5 months of AP. However I was told they only care about travel to Syria, Iran, and Iraq. Since your husband is Iranian I don't know how this will apply to him, but I don't see any reason to worry about travel to Thailand or India. Good luck :thumbs:

They do check it, but those countires shouldn't give you a problem. My husband has traveled more than that and we weren't even in AP more than 9-10 days :thumbs:

Ok, how about this scenario?????

My husband has travelled to India 2 times and to Thailand 1. Now we are waiting for AP....In the meantime we want to meet again in India for vacation...

If AP gets approved and my husband goes back to the Consulate with new India entry/exit stamp in his passport (we want to travel in April), will the Consulate stop and start the AP process because of this last unverified India trip?

I don't think anyone here can tell you what the consulate is going to do for sure. I don't think that would trigger anything and after all they gave him his passport back which means they know there is a possibility he may need to use it.

I think the fact he is in AP has more to do wiht the country he comes from more than anything else.

I guess I am getting freaked out....

I just had a meltdown at work today because of this.

I don't want the AP to clear only to have the Consulate start the process all over again because in the interim my husband and I decided to reunite in a third party country.

Trying to get a live person at the Consulate is impossible.

I used to call the embassy in Jordan between 3:30am - 5:30am my time to get a live person on the line. It was never helpful.

I wrote this letter by email to the Abu Dhabi Consulate:

Dear Sir or Madam:

I need your assistance and advice on the matter of Administrative Processing & applicant travel.

I am aware my husband's case is under Administrative Processing. The Department of State has specified it could take 6 months or longer. Because of this given time frame and the fact my husband and I have been seperate since May 2007, we would like to see each other sooner. This would entail both of us, meeting in a third-party country like India or Thailand.

Would my husband's travel outside of Iran to come see me in India/Thailand have an adverse or delaying effect on the issuing of his CR-1 visa? Would this travel require additional administrative processing?

I would appreciate your guidence on this matter because I am unsure if it wise for him to come see me if it would delay our visa. But we miss each other greatly and the burden of seperation is becoming oppressive.

Please let me know what the policy is on an applicant travel to other countries and Administrative Processing.

Please help us.

Thank you.
