I always hear of blue slips and pink slips. I know pink is passing, but what exactly is a blue slip and what does it mean? In general why do they give blue slips and what happens next?

Boy, it's been so long, I am not sure if I remember correctly. I think a blue slip might mean the petition has been put on some sort of administrative review while the pink slip is the approval. Please someone, correct me if my feable mind is failing me again :D

I have the (blue letter) at work and I'll get there Sunday morning. Sorry, I do recall it listing reason(s) why visa is denied. I clealy remember the lack of english speaking skills was at the top... That's a bunch of ####### too..I know of many in VN being approved and not knowing a word of English.. I'll post it ASAP... perhaps someone else can post or remember the details of the infamous "Blue form letter" and the 1 minute interviews... :angry:

A blue slip is given if there is some reason why a Consular officer will not issue or approve a visa after an interview. Usually there will be a reason(s) listed on the blue slip, in the form of a request for particular information. Sometimes there are vague statements given on a blue slip, and sometimes they will issue a blue slip with no reason given.

A green slip is given when information requested previously on a blue slip has been submitted and is awaiting further processing or there is a request for still more information to be submitted.
