Hello Everyone,

Our waiver was approved by New Delhi in Feb. 2010 after which the interview was conducted in March 2010 but because of the mnissing I-864 we had to submit it at local VFS office with passport last week. When we called yesterday they told us they are waiting for "second approval." Does anyone know what they mean by this? Has anyone else gone through the same process?

What is the estimated time before they issue visa in this sort of cases.

Thanks.

Hey.

I'm really not sure, so take this with a grain of salt; but I've just learned that for applications fild abroad, the Department of State reviews the affidavit and makes a determination as well as the Department of Homeland Security/US Customs and Immigration Service. I know this because the Department of State has sent my petitioner a request for a Affidavit of Support fee, which since I'm filing within the United States, should not have to be paid. Basically, USCIS/DHS knows I'm here and is processing my I-485; however, since I didn't tell them I'm in the US studying, the Department of State thinks I am still in my country of origin and is doing their job accordingly. I let the DOS know I've been here today and the whole thing should be worked out.

But as for your case, I'm suspecting this might have to do with the need for the Department of State to verify what you have told the USCIS. That's just a guess.

Dude, it's been barely 5 business days since the submission of the passport and I864.

Wait at least 15 before you start freaking out.

Good luck! :thumbs:

I have contacted the Delhi where our waiver was approved and they said that file is under review. Does anyone know what this mean?

Also when I contact the Mumbai consulate they said that its under "Administrative Review at Delhi?"

What does all this mean and what is estimated time for apporval of visa? Can they deny the visa for any reason even after the approval of our waiver? PLEASE HELP.

Yes, AR is administrative review.

Unfortunately, there is no timeframe for this.

You can call DOS for regular updates. I hope it's a short AR.
