I see you guys talking about casa and having an AP after the interview. what exactly does that mean? Thanks.

Hello,

AP means Advance Parole. You require AP when you are stil in the non-immigrant status and your AOS application is pending and you need to go out of US. It is good for a year and is generally issued within 60 days of its application

its Administrative Review/Administrative Processing. Generally all muslim men from countries on the *list of 26* between the ages of 18-45 get pulled for extra security checks. Getting a vosa approval on the spot is few and far between in these areas and can take a week to 2+ years to complete.

Ugh, that sucks! I wonder if because of the fact that I lived with his family in the Peace Corps, and he and his family all underwent security checks from the U.S. govt prior to my being placed there with them, maybe just maybe it won't happen for us? I can at least keep my fingers crossed!

the fact that you lived with him will have no bearing on AR/AP. That would be a plus for bonafide relationship, but irrelevant for security clearances. My husband was approved for a B1/B2 and still had to go through lengthy clearance to get a K1 and now we are doing it all again for AOS. Keep your fingers crossed, many do not last for long at all, while some take time and like ours... keep haunting us!

I was referring to the fact that in order for me to live with his family, he had security checks by the u.s. govt. i was working with the u.s. govt. at the time, and they screen all of the host families.

well using that logic, then the AR we went through just last year should suffice for our AOS, but it did not. From what I understand, the DOS does checks for overseas (consulates) and the DOJ/DHS does the checks for stateside (AOS, naturalization). 2 separate (albeit semi-integrated) agencies.

Let's hope that in your case, logic works!

I don't know if it's accurate or not, but I use AR (administrative review) when referring to the long security checks that a few couples have to go through. AP (administrative processing) is standard, at least in Morocco, nearly everyone (male) has to go through it. After the interview in Morocco, they generally get handed a 221g with some scary language that says something like, "You have been found to be inelegible for a visa.....". It goes on to say that you will be notified when administrative processing is complete. It usually takes 1 week to several months.

Yeah, it doesn't matter. It seems to me they do checks every step of the way. Some people are checked at USCIS, and NVC, and the consulate. Having already been checked means nothing, unfortunately.

Context, young jonty. No point in giving incorrect answers--AP in this case does not mean Advance Parole.

ok, thanks! I'm glad I know that ahead of time-- we both probably would have freaked when he gets that form!
