Administrative Processing AFTER interview.

Time frame for waiting:

1 to 3 months: LUCKY

4 to 6 months: AVERAGE

7 to 12 months: UNLUCKY

This is an interesting topic because as I await our interview, I'm learning that the Consulate my husband and I will be going through has been placing several cases that had interviews over the last couple of months on "Administrative Review/Processing." This does not bode well for those of us not yet there.

Does anyone have any information on what could cause this?

Thanks for the help!

There is no rhyme or reason to who gets placed on AP or for how long. And certainly the fact that the consulate you will be interviewing at "has been placing several cases that had interviews over the last couple of months on" AP does not mean that you should infer anything regarding the outcome of your upcoming visa interveiw. Please keep in mind that what is shown here on VJ, in the timelines are just a smaller portion of the overall cases going through a particular consulate. Just because a few cases have been put on AP in the last few months, does not mean that all the cases(and with some consulates that may be quite a few more than registered VJ members from that country) were put on AP. Just a little perspective.

Good luck,

Thanks Minya's wife. That is what I keep trying to remind myself. Sometimes it helps lesson the worries and sometimes it doesn't. Thanks for helping bring me back to that.

We had a VJ member in the Colombian club whose fiancée was put in AP after the interview. They waited a month, she called the DOS and they said to call the embassy to schedule a second interview. They did and at the interview they asked him why he was there and that they were not sure why he was still in AP and that it looked like it was a mistake from the beginning. At the end he just went off on them and got his visa a few days later.

The whole AP is a huge mistery to most of us.

My husband had his interview in Caracas for our IR1 visa on September 18th. After his interview, he was told his application was retained for internal administrative processing. We were instructed to e-mail the Embassy one week later for an update. They responded back to my e-mail with several more forms to complete as well as requesting a copy of his resume??? Bizarre. He completed all the necessary paperwork and returned it back to the Embassy. I was getting so frastrated I e-mailed the Embassy and asked for a time frame. "Several weeks" is what they told me. We have no idea why we were place on AP (we have been married almost three years, we own a house together in Florida, I've been to Venezuela 7 times to visit......). I can't find any stats on denials for AR/AP.... I pray for approval and don't allow myself to think about a denial....:) I pray your interview goes very well and your visa is approved. More couples get their visa approved then get placed on AR/AP. Focus on the positive!!! ~~ Hang in there:)
