It's possible the woman you spoke to on the phone didn't know her a$$ from her elbow. If that's the case then you should be able to get better information with a face-to-face visit to the Embassy.

On the other hand...

At many consulates, the visa approval has one or two more levels it has to pass through after the consular officer's interview. The Fraud Prevention Unit (FPU) can stop an approved visa for further investigation, and the visa section chief can also order a review of an approved visa. If one of these scenarios happened then all you can do is wait, and be ready to respond with evidence if they ask for it.

There have been cases where a visa was issued and the passport sent to the beneficiary, and then the visa was revoked by the consulate. Imagine getting on a plane and traveling to the US only to be told by the immigration officer on arrival that your visa had been canceled. :help:

Wow, that is highly unusual. I have not seen or heard of this from any country, much less Colombia. I was thinking about it and it could be an audit. All agencies of government and most businesses audit things from time to time. They could be checking the path of your wife and just verifying some vital details. It's a long shot and it really suxs for you and her but maybe it happens. keep us informed as to what you discover. Good luck and remember, you attract more bees with honey than vinegar...be polite yet firm.


May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!
