Abu Dhabi, UAE K1 visa in AP

Hi all,

My fiancee had her K1 visa at the Abu Dhabi Embassy on April 1st - her case was put in Administrative Processing and was told to check her case status in 4-5 weeks. My first worry is that its April 3rd and her case status is still not showing up. This is what the website reads:

"No information has been found about the application number you entered.

Please check carefully the number you entered. Your case number is clearly listed on your 221(g) refusal sheet and on all official correspondence from the Embassy regarding your immigration case. Please note the standard format for case numbers."

How long does it take for the system to update to at least show her case as in Administrative Processing? Should I contact the Embassy and let them know? For those that went through AP at the UAE embassy, how long before the website showed your fiancee/spouse's case?

Secondly, I've read a couple of members' posts about their own experiences about going through AP. From what I've gathered, its important to contact the local congressman and get them involved. I know its just been a few days for me, but I did call up my congressman's office today and they informed me to get back to them after 3 weeks (also, they told me that congressional inquiries really have no affect on AP). What other steps can I take to help make sure AP is as short as possible??

Pretty frustrating process. I thank all in advance for their answers.

I already posted this same question in the main K1 visa forum and I just figured out how to post in the UAE forum. Sorry for the double post! I hope someone knows how to remove the other one. Thanks!
