Hello visa journey members,

It is so frustrating that the DOS have the same answer <case is still under administrative processing> for 7 months. Every times I emailed the consulate they said unfortunately they don't have no control over the length of time this process will take. My question is: Who has the control over the length of time?

If you are under name/background checks it is the FBI...( http://www.fbi.gov/stats-services/name-checks & http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FBI_Name_Check )...

Although I wouldn't say the FBI has "control"...they are performing the checks...but there is likely a backlog of cases they have to get through...after which if you have a very common name they might get a 'hit' and have to wait on physical files to be sent from one of their 200+ locations to clear you and be sure you are not the same person as on their list. And who knows how many other agents are waiting on that same physical file to clear another case... The embassy does have "control" to ask to prioritize files...but they won't unless it is an extreme circumstance...at least this is what I have gathered from my reading...

If they are reviewing your case for other reasons such as the validity of your relationship then the embassy would have "control"....

Sadly there is no control...I suspect there is a huge backlog of cases...we are all just waiting in a really really long line for our cases to finally be complete....

Stay strong!

No problem...I find it comforting to know as much about the process as possible...I am constantly trying to find out more...I am no expert, this info is just based off of what I've read and my understanding of it all - but I hope it helps to give you an idea of what is probably going on...

Hope AP is over for all of us very soon!
