AP FOR CR 1

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just am wondering if anyone knows if the AP (name checks) for the CR1's are done prior to scheduling the interviews? I would like to know if ours has been done yet. Actually ours should be for the IR1.

It seems to be the case since I read that Jenny had her interview and is receiving her visa the next day. I am hoping the same thing can happen for us.

Any one who knows this tibit of info, I would greatly appreciate it!

Hello Chiquita,

Our embassy did not do any checks on us until after the day of the interview and we are in AP now. I know of a case besides Jennieh that was a CR1 for casa and they got their visa the day after their interview. So good luck.

That is the problem with the Administrative Processing it is different than the Administrative Reviews. On the AP they will only tell you that your on AP and that you have to wait. If you are on AR sometimes they will slip and inform you of fingerprints or other checks are in processing. I know how you are feeling and until we have visa in hand we are not celebrating.

Administrative Processing is more indepth and it is to verify the documents submitted, they can go and do field investigations at your home or job, or talk to a number of persons to validate the relationship or marriage is not a fraud. It also encompasses the security checks as well. When on AP they will not say anything to you from the embassy or DOS but say this case is in AP now. We will contact the applicant once it completes.

Administrative Review is usually the security checks and they will tell you that is what they are waiting for. When you contact DOS if you know checks are pending you can ask how many checks are cleared or ordered and some times the operator will tell you one is pending. They will not tell you the name of the check.

Hope this brings some understanding to this process. And if you are in these checks you just have to wait them out and pray for patience and understanding.

Thats great info, I didn't know the difference between AP and AR. But still I think her question is more towards whether they do it at the NVC level. I didn't think they do, but I am not sure. Anyone know for sure?

Ladies here are the checks and some information on them. My last reply was to Jean when she was asking about the AR/AP. I had to go back thru all my papers and find the information.

Once you start the visa process in the states the applicant (USC) is checked out via the FBI, CIA, etc. And you can also have a check call the Lexis Nexis that is what is used in the banking industry. I know this since one of the girls from Pakistan saw their file and it showed the check was run on her in the states. It will check the following: http://www.occ.treas.gov/corpbook/occforms...me%20check'

Too many to list individually so look at the form.

Now for the person in the country coming into the states they do a brief name check stateside. Once they sign the DS forms these checks are initiated under the names of Condor and NCIC checks.

Fingerprints at the embassy. If you only submit two index it means you did not have a name hit yet. If you must submit the full set you already have had a name hit in one or many data bases and it must be overcome. You are then in the Chameleon check.

These checks I am listing are the main ones for ME/Asian men.

1. Bear

2. Donkey

3. Eagle

4. Horse

5. Mantis is a technology check depending on schooling or job. *** Several types of mantis checks, too.***

6. Pegasus

Now once the checks start and you interview they cannot issue you a visa until all checks that are ordered come back clear. Sometimes some of them expire before all are cleared and you can stay on AR until all are completed and agreed as cleared. Once on AR/AP the consulate has to have a meeting to see if they agree to issue the visa and then they send their recommendation to DOS. DOS and embassy must agree and cable back that they will issue the visa. At this time the embassy will contact the person to come back to the embassy or if courier fee is paid they will send out the visa.

Hope this answered it a little more. But tons of checks are done and few at start then the main ones are done once the packet arrives at the embassy. Depending on each embassy they can start checks before the interview or after it.
