My fiance is in Canada, she has a Syrian Passport but is a permanent resident in Canada. Does she need a B2 Visa, or will she qualify in the agreement between the US and Canada that allows them to visit temporarily without a visa.

Permanent residents (aka landed immigrants) of Canada must have a nonimmigrant visa unless the permanent resident is a national of a country that participates in the Visa Waiver Program (VWP), meets the VWP requirements, and is seeking to enter the U.S. for 90 days or less under that program.

Hello Everyone, I just wanted to ask another quick question. So my fiance applied for a Visiting Visa and at the interview, she was told that she was approved. But the officer told her that it might take a little while for her to get the visa. I assumed she was told that because she interviewed on April 8th, the time of the possible Gov. Shutdown...

It's been two weeks and she still hasn't received the visa. The officer did give her a letter indicating "further administratives processing". Is that a normal letter or is her application going thru extra review?

When should she expect a final decision and the visa in hand?

Shes in AP. It could take weeks / months / year to be issued a visa.

That has nothing to do with the Gov shut down scare. Thats because shes from Syria.

Your I-129f was approved in 5 days from your NOA1 date.

Your interview took 67 days from your I-129F NOA1 date.

AOS was approved in 2 months and 8 days without interview.

ROC was approved in 3 months and 2 days without interview.

That's the AP in "further administrative processing"

It means they are doing additional background and identity checks. VERY common for someone from her neck of the woods.

Sorry, nothing you can do

good luck

I see. Thanks your help!

Just curios tho, if the interviewing officer said she's approved, is it final or can they change the decision?

AP can change the decision if they find something they don't like. Shes not approved until she has the visa stamped and has her passport in her hand.

Assuming she has not been bad it should be a formality, one with no time line.

Nothing to worry, unless she has something in her background that should raise the flag.

The origination country she is from - she would be going thru AP as everyone has mentioned.

You just got to wait until they are done with AP, there is no such timeline as how and when they finish the AP process.

Do you think they will look more into the fact that we have a K-1 Visa in progress?
