AP-4th month....

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, we are in our 4th month of AP and I just wanted to get some insight from those who maybe frequent these boards more than i do. I called the DOS a few weeks ago and they said "your visa has been sent back to the USCIS" but did not mention any decision. I said, "Does that mean a decision has been made?" and she simply said, "No, it means it's been sent back."

However, as I mentioned, that was several weeks ago, and I have called the DOS since then (today) & they said it is still pending AP.

My fiance was to turn in 1 missing form and did so within 24 hours of his interview. At the interview everything seemed to go well - they kept his passport etc. Not sure what is processing.

What does this "sent back to USCIS" mean? I have read conflicting things...

Our country is India, consulate is ND

thanks.

You need to call and email the embassy for a case status.

Also contact your congressman and tell them you would appreciate a congressional inquiry to dos to know the status of your case

Sept 11, 2011 NOA2-took 19 days to get case number

Sept 30, 2011 NVC number and IIN received Friday-gotta wait till Monday

Oct 13, 2011 Case Completed- 13 days from receiving case number Took 32 days from NOA2

There is a big difference between AP and your case being sent back to USCIS. First of all they didn;t send your visa anywhere, it was never approved. AP is administrative processing for further background checks. Did they send your file back to USCIS for further review? This happens when the CO denies the visa and sends it back with the intention of having the USCIS deny or revoke the petition. You need to give more detail, your post is very confusing.

Not trying to be confusing - I am confused myself, though! I did contact a congressional person after the "your visa has been sent back" call - mostly to ask what that meant! She did not know but did contact the ND consulate regarding our status. The congressional rep spoke to the visa chief at the ND consulate - he replied that we were still in the AP process....

they cannot send a visa that has not been issued anywhere.
