HIGHLY DEPRESSED

29 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Dear VJers,

Firstly, Thanks for all the supports and words of encouragement.

Meanwhile, I am highly depressed because I had my K1-visa interview today and the consular returned my original passport, birth certificate and divorce papers of my fiancee AND he said they will get back to me in the next couple of weeks.

He gave me a visa refusal sheet saying I am on ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESSING..... Please what should I be expecting from them ? :help:

I will update my timeline in due course.

Thanks

Oh sorry to hear that. If you don't mind my asking, can you tell me which is country the beneficiary comes from? What the CO had asked her? Thank you.

Sorry to hear about your situation. Please tell us more about your case, the US Embassy the interview was taken place, and the reason the CO denied your visa? We can't really help you if you're not able to tell us more.

The beneficiary is from Nigeria residing in Middle East

That is the answer about AP. Being that Nigeria is such a high fraud Embassy most (if not all) beneficiaries are put through AP... Additionally, ALL MENA beneficiaries are placed in AP for name checks and additional security clearances since 9/11.

Hope it is a short AP! Good luck!!

Thanks. I guessed the same as you said because the CO said everything is perfect and we also have a daughter.... don't you think they might request for DNA ? And please how long does an AP takes ?

Unfortunately there is no way to predict how long AP will take. Now that your fiance has had his interview they will use the finger prints to check world wide data bases for a "hit". Additional name checks will be performed through the FBI data base and others.

DNA is requested if there is a doubt to the paternity of the child. It appears that the CO has no doubts about lineage so the only thing pending is for your fiance to finish the back ground checks.

AP can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. There is no way to predict how long it will take but my hope is for a speedy AP and that you will be reunited very soon.

The GOOD news is that your fiance passed the interview and the only thing pending is the administrative processing now!

OK, just read all the posts. Nigeria living in the Middle East.....double whammy. Read up on other couples that went through Nigeria....maybe the K-1 is not your best bet.

Since you haven't updated either your timeline your or profile I can only assume you are dealing with a high fraud country or one in the MiddleEast or Pakistan/India region. These Always have additional AP. The fact that they returned the passport is not a good sign; obviously there is something either in your past or their past or region specific that is making them wary of issuing a visa. You are stuck until you find out what it amiss. Don't you have a clue?

There is no need for you to worry my fiancee passed the interview and the CO told us that she would get her visa within 7-10 business days. When I called DOS on Friday the operator told me that my fiancee was on AP. The only difference is that our CO kept her passport. Don`t lose hope! Most AP cases result in approval. The only downside is the waiting.

It was posted above that the beneficiary is from Nigeria and residing in a MENA country. 2 obvious signs and indicators for AP.

Agreed. All the OP can do now is hope for a speedy AP. I would assume a couple of months to finish all processing.

Wow Yankee4real,

I went through the same thing 10/31/11 and the hardest part is the wait. My faith is what is keeping me sane so please prepare for the wait. As others have stated there is no definate time frame. Do your best to read the different threads similar to your case to be ready for any next steps you may need to take depending on the results. Don't just sit and wait....prepare yourself while waiting. I too wish for a speedy approval for you and yours.

It wasn't till we recieved the 221g did I knoiw it has it's own section on VJ. The info can get quite conflicting because everyone adds their thoughts and advice so try to weed through information pertinent to you and your case. Try not to overwhelm yourself though.

Then you were truly blessed. You are correct - "The MAJORITY" of MENA beneficiaries are placed in AP...
