Hello Everyone, My Wife had her interview in Islamabad on May 7th. She received a light green paper at the end of the interview stating temporarily refused for administrative processing. Also states that it can take 2-3 months but no maximum time. They kept her passport and gave her token... give me some info since I have been calling DOS and they keep saying under administrative processing...I'm a US Citizen. We got married last year, June 10th 2009.

I wish really appreciate if someone can give their insights.

Thank you so much!!!

Please see below the paper she got after her interview on 5/7...

Hello Everyone,

My Wife had her interview on May 7th, 2010 at Islamabad, Pakistan

At the end of the interview she received a “green” color paper stating that temporarily refused for administrative processing.

I have been calling Dept. of State (DOS) almost every single day and every time I called they said, the case Is still under administrative processed.

SoI called again on July 30th and they said that “AP” has been completed….WOW!!!!..When I heard that my hears could not believe this so I had the operator over the phone check with someone else and they both confirmed that “AP” is complete and they said “congratulations” and they said don’t get too excited and don’t buy the tickets yet until your wife has received the visa in her hand…

So then on the same day, I called DOS again later that day (July 30th) and I onc again gave them my case # and they said, "Congrats the visa was issued today"...and when they said that OMG (OH MY GOD) I swear my ears couldn’t believe this….

So then eariler today I called the Islamabad Embassy and they said that they already sent the passport packet to AMEX (AUTH. COURRIER) and my Wife should recieve a call from them within 1-2 days to pick it up :)

THANK YOU SO MUCH

Thanks again!
