DOS say Visa issued but passport not here...

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Everybody.

My husband had his Interview a monnth ago ( spouse of US citizen ) and was told everything is OK and he should expect his passport back within 3-4 weeks.

After waiting 4 weeks we called DOS and they informed us that the visa was issued 4 days after the interview and we should e-mail the embassy to see what is causing the delay.

Emvassy replied - the fact that the visa was issued does not mean it is ready to be sent ( what ?? ). it still needs "administrative work" ( exact words ) and we cannot provide a time frame...

So, what does this mean ? it has been 4 weeks since the visa was issued according to DOS ( confirmed by the embassy ) but it is still not ready to be sent ? could it be placed on additional processing after it is issued ?

I thought "issued" is the final step of the process ...

Any thoughts ?

Most likely, it's being held for further administrative processing.
