Administrative Processing due to No Criminal Backround, how long will this take?

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Fellow VJers,

We had our interview on Aug 28, 2012, my fiance was told to give them 3 weeks and we should hear back from them either he'll get his passport with the visa or a letter explaining of what needs to be done. Does anybody have any experience on this kind of delay? How long will this normally take? Can I call any offices? Is there anything we can do to expedite the process. Or just any experience you guys went thru just so I can have an idea what to expect.

Thanks so much in advance for all the input.

Have a great day!

We were in ap also, there is no time limit and really no phone calls will speed it up, it usually lasts a few weeks. was there a 221g given?, if so what was checked on it?

i believe this has something to do with his NBI Clearance.

usually, if one doesn't have any criminal record, NO RECORD ON FILE is written on the NBI Clearance.

otherwise, NO CRIMINAL BACKGROUND is written, that's why he is put under AP.

the Embassy will have to double check his records with NBI.

The Embassy is going to order an NBI clearance directly from the NBI. Give them a few weeks, and then start checking with the Embassy.

Thank you for your response.

The only thing that was written/checked on the paper that was given was his NBI clearance. What was the issue on yours? How long did yours take? Thank you

Thank you. I really hope it would only take weeks. We already waited 3weeks, that's what the Filipino officer said, give them 3 weeks and he should get his passport delivered with a visa or if not a letter. The hard part is we don't know if it's approve?

An official letter of explanation from the NBI is required for any notation of “No criminal record”, or "No pending case”. The US embassy just want to find out more about the non-criminal record under his name. If you were told to wait 3 weeks and 3 weeks have passed, it's better to start following up with the US embassy. You'll most likely get an approval as soon as the embassy receives the explanation.

For all that responded here..Thank you!!!

Just to keep you guys posted...I had a very long 4 weeks of waiting.

Our 3rd week of the interview date was on Sept 18, haven't heard anything. I called them on Sept 20th, I called US embassy and DOS, both told me that our case was on AP and can't tell how long that would take.

So, decided to wait.

Sept 22, my fiance recd a call to ask if he will be at the address where he wants his passport delivered. Being it was a Saturday, their office as closed so he wasn't. and so the delivery guy said he'll deliver on monday. Whew!! this was the longes 2 days of my life--feels like at least. Then on Sunday we recd this email:

Dear XXXXXXX Xxxxxxxx

Your document(s) have been collected from the US Embassy/Consulate.

The passport number being returned is AB1234566 and the AWB for tracking is S123344555L.

You have chosen to have your documents delivered to the following location:

DiLeonardo Inc.

Unit B, 6th Floor, MAKATI CITY, METRO MANILA 1203

Oh my!!! I kept reading here at VJ, read abt being put in AP for longer periods of time when they got this letter and some got a visa. my oh my!!! I guess I will just have to wait.

We got our visa today!!!

Thanks be to God that hears our prayers!!!

Thanks everyone for the encouragement and helpful information!!!

most cases at USEM-Manila takes a month or but less than 3months to approved AP cases..compare to different country i.e pakistan takes year/s to process it.

by the way congrats :thumbs:


The longer it takes to happen the more you'll appreciate it when it does!
