"Been Administrative Closed"

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Folks, I need your suggestions.

My wife's CR-1 visa has "been administrative closed" by the US Consular Officer. Reasons, not enough support evidences like I did not visit her since I applied for her visa in Jan-09, not taking enough pictures of both of us visiting places, not having separate engagement and wedding parties, duration of my visits were short (within 10days) etc..

Now what I need to do next?

Thanks

I agree, 2 years is a long time not to make plans to see your spouse. You may refile, but do not do so until you've visited and increased your proof

Good luck

"Xdog, may I ask why you havent see her since Jan '09? Does seem rather a long time, I can understand they are wondering why too. "

Sorry, Jan. 2010, not Jan. 2009

Financial constrains: I'm a divorce, have a mortgage, and child support payments, airline ticket costs ~US$1600 to South East Asia, total cost of a trip could be up to US$3000, job security (company currently laid off workers), therefore, work more off less, security clearance (visiting Communist Country, must notify and debrief when come back, visit too often, security clearance could be up for more reviews and revoke or cleared to a lower level, then no security clearance, no job).

I explained these reasons in a singed and notarized personal statement to the US Consulate Office when I was asked why I was not visiting often.

Sorry, Jan 2010 I filled for her visa application, not Jan 09. I visited her last was on December 09.

Unless you change your current situation, change your proof of relationship - In other words, if you re-petition with the same evidence, expect the same result

Good luck

Any suggestion of new evidence? Re-file a new petition and Visiting her every six months will it help?
