BEING CALLED BACK TO THE EMBASSY

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm a newbie here and i really just want to try and ease my mind about this visa processing. I had a call early this morning by someone in the manila embassy telling me that i had skip some procedures during my interview, she said that the consulate failed to verify my finger print during my interview and they wanted me to come back to the embassy, she also asked me if i am back in Cebu and i said yes and told me to hold on as she asked the consul for something then said they are very sorry but that i really have to come back to manila and do the finger verification scan. Its been a week since my interview which was last January 4 and the consulate didn't tell me outright that i was approved but just told me to wait for my name to be called after the interview for some instruction from someone in window 72. The guy their just told me to wait for my visa and to leave my mailing instructions on the 2GO window, so i assumed i was done and approved. And now that i am being called back for the consulates mistake as they say it was, my mind is boggled that i had to sign-up here and ask anyone if they had gone through the same thing or if they ever called back to the embassy coz they are being in administrative processing or some security checks...thanks for anyone who care to share a penny of their thoughts to this...:):):)

Would they have any reason to have something come back after doing your finger prints?

Perhaps your finger prints didn't process properly?

The U.S. Embassy Manila called Chinook four days after her K-1 interview. The Embassy case worker told Chinook they lost my I-134 and its supporting documents. Fortunately, Chinook had not yet returned to Bacolod and was still in Manila. She submitted copies of the needed documents in person at the Embassy. You can read about it here:

I'm not sure...the girl that called me just said that the consulate failed to verify my finger print scan...she said its part of the procedure to do so when you are interviewed by the consulate..

did everyone had their finger print scanned during the interview with the consulate?? coz during my interview i saw some people being ask for the finger scan during interview but i thought it was just random...and wasn't too concerned when i was not being asked to do so...and now they make me feel that its urgent that i had my finger scan verified...

Ya, fingerprinting is required for visa processing.

If you had some problem with it, or missed it, then of course you must to go back and get it done.

Sorry this happened to you.

Sounds like that's it. They're not exactly apologizing for the error but instead just want you to come back so they can finish what they missed.
