Additional Processing

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm currently wading through all 203 pages of the AP topic, but had a question over NVC. Received a letter after I inquired about status. They mentioned additional processing, and well I was confused as to whether or not this was the same as Administrative Processing. So I called and they said, this is something that is routine and her quote "we're not picking on you, all go through this. Call back sometime mid week." However, she said there is no set timeline, but is not the same as Administrative Review. So my understanding, is additional processing is just gathering everything together to send to the embassy and is not going to be in the infamous 50 day Limbo, or am I wrong?

Dear Sir/Madam:

Your inquiry has been received at the National Visa Center (NVC).

This petition is currently undergoing additional processing. We will send further instructions once this processing is completed.

Well, I can now answer my own question and perhaps help those others who see the same thing. The operator clearly (and I even called a second time just out of curiosity on confirmation) Additional processing is basically throwing it into a packet and getting everything bundled. 100% go through "additional rpocessing" at NVC. Administrative Processing IS a second check according to both times I called. One didn't comment on it and the other said those that go through Administrative Processing on this level for K1 are either random or in certain circumstances, something may have been flagged going through the computers.

Anyways, our case arrived at NVC 11 May, left 13 MAY, the same day I posted this, and according to DHL should be there tomorrow. Fianceé is planning to send an email shortly (as Lima if I am not mistaken seems to be low level) to be sure the interview is not a week or two earlier than when I had planned to arrive for my summer vacation. (God willing, and prayers if your religious, that that job will be still there when I return and that she will join me).
