Mandatory AP in New Delhi Consulate in India

Hi Friends,

My wife had CR-1 visa interview at US embassy, New Delhi, India on May 6th. I was there with her but American lady CO didn’t ask any question to me. She was ok till she was asking question related to our relationship but when she saw that my wife had applied for F-1 visa in 2007 (same year we started chatting), CO started asking questions related to previous applied F-1 visa. Questions like when F-1 was applied, how many times, what was the outcome, what is my wife’s degree and what was the specialization area in her master degree?? Then she told us to wait, you’ll be called again. After half an hour we were called to different window by an Indian guy, he told us to submit my wife’s resume and was given a letter saying our case undergoes mandatory AP. When we asked what the reason he said that system will require longer processing time, it may take 2 to 20 days processing and at the same time he told us your visa has been granted so nothing to worry about. But we are going crazy what they are going to check and why we are put in AP.

Here the background of our relationship-: We met through a matrimonial website and started chatting in late 2007 and my divorce was not finalized that time. My divorce was finalized in March 2009 and we got married in oct 2009. My wife had applied for F-1 visa in the same year 2007 when we met.

I don’t know what they are going to check and what was the reason we are put in AP??

Please reply if any one going through this situation or been through.

Sorry about the AP, Conner. New Delhi seems to a royal PITA just on general principles.

Sounds like the fact that you both were communicating at the time she applied for a F-1 triggered off something. Was the F-1 granted in 2007? Did you both meet in the U.S.?

Do you mind sharing what were some of the questions asked during the interview?

I wouldn't worry too much. Your visa has been approved. Hopefully your AP doesn't last longer than 3 weeks.

Hang in there and keep us posted, ya?

No, F-1 was not granted. Reason of denial of F-1 was intension of migration. She was in india when we met. CO asked just basic questions like;

when we met, how many marriages, when we got married, when we started chatting, how many people attented marriage, my ex wife name, what is my degree and university name, what her degree and specialization, when I went to US and on which visa, company name.

after marriage pic. I think CO was OK till she found out that my wife had attempted for F-1. we were not prepare to get into AP but now I am there, lets see what they will say. Its very frustating.

Good luck to your interview.

Hello Friends,

I was wondering if anyone's spouse have been in the situation like my wife. I mean tried for F-1 or any other visa and later CR-1. if anyone,please give us some feedback so I can prepare what we need to do to get out from this mess.

I think F1 has nothing to do with CR-1 but we are in AP, very frustrating.

Help us please.

Hi Conner,

Sorry for the AP. I didn't experience this, but I wanted to let you know not to worry about this AP stuff since you are already approved like sachinky mentioned.

I think the reason for mandatory AP was due to "Reason of denial of F-1 was intension of migration". They just want to double check.

So hopefully, AP will be over in less than the time given.

Good luck with everything and congratulations in advance. :star:
