Hi ,

I had my visa interview on 14th June and at the end of the interview i was told by the CO that yous visa has been approved and he kept my passport n said you will receive your visa within a few days ..after 2 days i got my passport back along with a letter which states that YOUR CASE IS KEPT PENDING UNDER SECTION 221G AND WE WILL CONTACT YOU WHEN IT IS DONE ..and my i797 notice expiration date is 30 July.. that makes me worried ..

1 , what do u think is the probable cause of keeping me in AP after approval ?

2 ,what will happen if i don't get the visa before July 30th ? will my petition expire n do i have to file it again ?

Thank You .

Nothing to worry about. There's probability that some of the paperwork you presented triggered a red flag and the embassy is trying to conduct a finding which everybody knows as administration processing AP.

Moreover, mayb while going thru your emails or other evidence submitted, they're not too sure of the evidence and hence they wanted to ensure that what you claimed to submit is actually authentic and genuine.

The embassy have the power to extend your visa processing beyond July 31st and you don't need to file again.

Just keep praying and hopeful, everything will be fine...

call and call and bother them. go in person. cause a ruckus. you have to get the info needed. this is ridiculous. did u email VFS?? if the american is in india they can go make an apt. for the embassy and then go and talk to someone at window j24 or j25 and ask what happened. first you will have to go to the u.s. side then make sure a security guard escorts you to the lady who will give you your number, or if u have been to the embassy before and have confidence go ahead and just do it yourself but you need to know where to go.

WARNING that fat #### blonde lady that works in the middle window of the u.s. embassy on american side is a ######. she will not help you and is really annoying. when u enter the american side try and go left behind the secruity door and speak to someone in CIS but generally no one is there. they will more then likely make you go to ACIS and then just make ACIS send you to window j25 make up something like they told u to go to that window. then you have to walk back out and head over to where the interview was taken. i think interview is taken at j22 window or something like that but that window wont talk to you. u have to go to j25 window. a younger girl with long curly hair is pretty helpful and nice. you have to be confident with them. DO NOT LEAVE unless u get the info you want. insist upon it but diplomatically, not like a psycho bc they are still processing your file and you dont want it denied.

This is what i got in reply when i e mailed the consulate regarding my case .

The case is under administrative review. This is an internal process.

Unfortunately, we cannot predict when our review will be completed, but

we will do our best to process the case expeditiously with the confines

of our resource limitations. We will contact you once we complete

administrative process of your case.

Thank you for your inquiry

Sincerely yours

Immigrant Visa Unit

AP can last a few weeks, a few months or a year and a few cases even longer. There is no way of knowing how long it will take. There is nothing you can do to speed up the process.

If you are unable to get a precise answer from the CO on the phone or in person what they are reviewing, verifying or investigating, then just call DOS by weekly or so to inquire about your status. Depending on which agent you will get to answer the phone you may or may not get a little bit more info.

DOS phone # is 202-663-1225, press 1,0.

You can ask precise questions like, is the beneficiary in name checks or security checks or is it document verification.

The unknown time frame is stressful but you might as well just try to relax and allow the process to take it's course.
