K-1 VISA ADMINISTRATIVE DELAY - GUANGZHOU

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Guangzhou Consular Officer gave fiancee letter on 3/20/2012 following K-1 interview which stated: "Congratulations! Your visa has been approved. You can now proceed to the final steps of this process." She submitted her passport, completed her EMS Waybill, and elected to wait in Guangzhou (1,500 miles from home) for visa. After 7 days, we started getting worried. I gave her the telephone to the Embassy, but the Embassy told her that she must use the website instead. After 2 weeks in Guangzhou, the US Embassy finally e-mailed me back, not her, to tell me to tell her to fly back home, that her visa was not approved, and that she would be getting a letter in the mail in about 2 weeks. About 2 weeks later, a "blue letter" arrived. It did not say why the visa was "approved" and then "not approved." It only asked for a detailed work/educational history and plans to work in USA. This is not a work visa, or a tourist visa; this is a fiancee visa. Furthermore, the "Packet 4" already requested the same information, as did the Consular Official at the interview which she passed. So, the question is why the duplicate information was requested. Also, what is the expected waiting time for "administrative processing"? Of course, the Embassy declined to state the reason why and then time when the information received would be reviewed. It has been 10 months since I first submitted my I-129F package to Dallas Dropbox, 5 months since the I-797 Notice of Action (approval) was forwarded to Guangzhou, and now almost 2 months since the "approval." In China, a woman risks a great deal by meeting a foreigner. For a fiancee visa request to be placed on hold is a very bad thing. It is difficult for a woman to face family and friends when this happens. Waiting is becoming increasingly difficult and expensive. Why would a respectable Chinese woman actually wish to become a US citizen after being treated this way the the US government?

this form is called a blue slip.

waiting time for administrative processing, after documents submitted - 1 to 3 months, all depending on current queue size for administrativing processing.


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