Can my case be sent back to USCIS again?

Hello, I had my first interview for my I-130 petition in 2010. The consular officer decided to send my case back to USCIS for possible revocation. After 1 year, my case was reapproved and I was given a 2nd interview on March 5th. This interview resulted with a 221(g) telling me I needed to submit a copy of taxes and another birth certificate and on top of that I was put in administrative process. I sent those 2 documents in and got called in to the embassy again and got asked some more questions as a continuation of the March 5th interview. Once again, I was told I was put in AP and that I would be contacted when they were ready. I am just wondering if it is possible for the embassy to send my case back to USCIS again or is that a one time only thing?

Any thing is possible, but your petition is already reaffirmed by USCIS and you had second interview.

I believe it is a time thing while you are in AP, Embassy may be doing some background checks and/or doing some investigation in your country for verification too.

Hang in there... hopefully you will hear good news soon.

The process goes that they approved it , then you interviewed and the embassy found something they didn't like and sent it back , uscis looked at it and siad No that is ok, interview him again. If they find a new thing they could reject it again. It is rare but has happened.


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

if you are in AP, then getting sent back again to uscis is sorta 'iffy'.

It was already sent back once and re-affirmed, but you won't know the next step until AP is completed.

AP takes some time.

Many instances here on VJ where the visa was issued after AP is completed, though, so that's a plus...

Ultimately, it's up to the VISA OFFICER handling your casefile, for what's next after AP is completed. IF, he's satisfied with the results of the AP, and sees no other reason(s ) to deny your visa, he will most likely issue the visa to you.

But, just remember - it's the 'totality of the casefile' that's in play, here, not just the fact that the casefile was sent back, not just the fact that USCIS re-affirmed it, and not just the fact that you got a 221-g for expired documents, and not just the fact that you are currently in AP. There's other things a Visa Officer must consider when deciding if you get the visa or no.

Good luck, however it turns out.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
