Congrats!!! Wishing both you and your Husband the very best. I'm new to this, my Wife had her interview in Islamabad on May 7th. She recieved a light green paper at the end of the interview stating temporarily refused for adminstrative processing. Also states that it can take 2-3 months but no maximin time. They kept her passport and gave her token...did your Husband get the same when he was intervied in Islamabad...please give me some info since I have been calling DOS and they keep saying under adminstrative processing...I'm a US Citizen. We got married last year, June 10th 2009.

I once again wish you and your Husband the very best and happy b-day to you....
