What do u think of visa "kind of approved" ?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We had the interview today, after a few issues with my previous visas (I had many : J1, F1, H1B) they finally found my J1 waiver in the system so we got at the interview and the guy told us ( me and my fiance ) that we are approved. He said to wait about an hour to get the visa, so we did , but after an hour he said the security check for me wasn't received yet so that will take a while but there is no "nothing to worry about" and we should come back tomorrow. I DO NOT believe this "no worries" thing because about a year ago I came home with my fiance to meet my family , having H1B at that time. They told me the same thing: "You are approved and come back tomorrow" and next day they told me the visa is not ready yet and it will take more time. After few months they called me and told me that my H1B visa is "not denied" but is in "administrative processing" and we never heard anything ever since. At today's interview the guy obviously knew about my previous H1B interview and he said that wasn't my fault , it was something with my petitioner (my employer when I applied for the H1b).

Will I be in the same situation again ? They didn't do my security check on these 8 months since I am getting crazy about this visa ?

Any thoughts welcomed .....

Sweetie, that was exactly how things went for me and Vio. Your visa will be ready tomorrow as they have no solid ground to deny it or put you under AP.

Congratulations for getting your approval! You're just one step from coming here and you'll be so close to meeee!! :P CT is close.

Anyway, don't worry about it. They had some issues printing my visa too. Their printer had some sort of problems, sticking two pages together so they had to fix it. Maybe they gotta do it on an everyday basis to work properly. Try to stay calm and trust me, you'll get it tomorrow!

No, they told me about printing problems and they told Vio about security blah blah. It's ok. (You got it already, so this reply is useless, but just so you know... :P)
