Had interview last week, it was not "approved" because one of the document is missing. They asked to send the missing document along with the passport by courier which I did on Monday, the status changed from "AP" to "ready" since Tuesday, however, it stays ready since tuesday, they did something yesterday but is still showing "ready" with below. I am worried that they forget us again....

Your case is ready for your interview when scheduled at the U.S. Consular section. If you have already scheduled an appointment for an interview, please prepare your documents as directed in your appointment letter and appear at the consulate on the appointed date and time. Otherwise, please wait until you have been notified of your interview appointment. Additional information about how Immigrant Visa interview appointments are scheduled can be found at: http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/info/info_3731.html

For the interview that is approved, it goes to AP immediately and the Visa normally will be issued within the next two day, mine has been two days and its not even going to AP for processing.... Anyone had experience that they need to send document after the interview and how long did it take for them to issue the visa?

Just be patient. Similar thing happened. We dropped of the document and the passport. They said it would take 10 days. But two days later it changed to Open Ready, next day Administrative processing and third day issued. Since you sent it via courier they have to get it and then review it so be patient. If you were denied you wont have been asked to drop of your passport.

We had the same problem, we were given a 221G form for a missing document ( marriage certificate ). we submitted it and actually it took only 2 days to change from AP to issued. Just wait it will soon change to issued.

What the Russian and Nigerian embassies did probably doesn't apply to a London case.

That's right, thanks tho Ikedi and Sam.

so i guess it is normal that it stays "ready" for 3 days, no need to send them contact form. They didn't do our interview scheduling unitl I sent them message and it was almost 6 weeks already when they see my message, if I didn't send the message, the wait will definitely be more than 6 weeks, I am just worried that it might happen again

can you please tell me how you submitted the missing documents? Thanks

I already sent you a PM :)

I think your AP status was because they required something further. Going back to ready likely means the documents were received. Now you wait in the pile of paperwork for an officer to get back to. But they also interview a hundred new each day. It won't necessarily be the next day they go back to your case. In the past, I have known people to hear in one week all the way to three weeks.
