It seems as though your case has been put under Administrative Processing (AP). VJ members experiences with AP vary, for some they are in AP for just a few weeks (less than a month), while others are in AP for many months, even amounting to a year or more! You could check the regional forums and befriend VJ members with beneficiaries in India to see if anyone experienced AP and to see if they can give you consulate specific advice.

Best wishes! (F)

"Bubbleout" this is a normal processing for Delhi Embassy.... not to worry.

They will call you once you are out of AP... to submit passport to VFS office.

My sister-in-law got out of AP in 10 weeks.

They were not able to issue me K1 visa at this time(221(g))and asking for more proof of relationship.

If 800 pictures cannot satisfy proof of relationship, what else can !!!!. Was there any red flag? My fiancee will be having interview in near future, now I am really hanging as to what qualifies fool-proof evidence.

Was there any other red flag which spooked them?

Racial difference, age difference, previous marriages?

My finacee will be interviewed soon, but at Mumbai Embassy. Do I need to gather all this information too? I never heard of it, but seems like they want more and more.

American Embassy and consulate offices in India are asking the same evidence from all K1 one applicants.

I was in India for a month and I went to embassy 3-4 times and I spoke with other applicants and their

relatives who are also at the embassy and at the vfs office for same reason. All the items they requested

from us are mandatory now. So it's a good idea to get them ready before hand and submit them to VFS office

prior to the interview. I am sure if they can view all the evidence before hand then no need for AP

my question is if they ask for these following documents is it mandatory to submit all the documents ? or u can submit whichever docs u can arrange .

1 Notarized explanation from you and your petitioner of how and when you first met and why you decided to get engaged.

2 List of all engagement ceremony guests,their relationship to you,their addresses and their phone numbers.

3 Itemized emails and/or postmarked letters or cards between you and your fiancee.

4 Photos of you and the petitioner before,during,and after your engagement.

5 Notarized statement signed by the applicant's parents discussing their views of the engagement.

6 Notarized copy of your fiancee's passport.

7 Voter's ID card and Voter's list for the past 5 years of the beneficiary.

I have a feeling that asking for these documents is some sort of stalling tactic, since K1 ‘s are rarely out rightly denied. If your relationship has some characteristics which state dept deems out of ordinary, or something comes up during background check which sparks suspicion they will put you in AP.

In my opinion these are some of the possible red-flags

- Either party is not of Indian origin

- Relationship originated from online courtship and doesn’t have parental blessing.

- Large age gap or women is older than man

- Previous marriages

If your petition has any of these characteristics, be prepared for some extensive delays and/or ultimate rejection. Unfortunately I do have a possible red-flag so I am kind of worried, but all you can do is have all your ducks in row and then hope for the best.

When did they ask you all this information? Was she told that she is approved for the visa?

This is happenning with a lot of K1 filers these days. Unfortunately, this AP can last anywhere from few weeks to few months at the worst.


Just a happy couple!
