CEAC status stuck on ready

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Pretty new to this and really stuck on what is happening with my application to immigrate?

In a nutshell, we (family and I) had our interview on the 17/11/2014. The interviewing officer was pleasant and really welcoming throughout, chatted about the rain, NFL, banking (my wife and I both work in finance). He concluded that he saw no issues with our interview and paper work, and that we had ' passed the interview' (we asked how we did).

However, he did give us a Blue slip, a 221g. The officer said that he just wanted to see my fathers bank statements to ensure that we ‘exceeded the poverty line’, and to make sure that what my father had written on the AOS was correct and true (he has a very healthy bank balance). The officer stated that he would keep our passports, with the rest of our case file until the statements were received.

As requested I emailed the bank statements directly to the London Visa Office on the 19/11/2014 (the officer wrote the email address on the blue slip). I received a auto response to state that the email had been received on the 19/11/2014.

Also on the 19/11/2014 CEAC changed to 'Read'y from 'Admin Processing'. and has been stuck on this status since....

Since now checking CEAC the status update date has changed on 26/11/2014, 01/12/2014 and 05/12/2014.

How long does it take to check a few bank statements.

Has anyone else had this scenario? I guess my real question is when will I get my passports returned and when will I get my Visa ??

I think they switch it to ready whenever a case is reopened. At least this happened in our case where we got our visa packet in the mail last week, but there was a typo on his data summary sheet, so it was sent back. Once they received the packet it switched from Issued back to Ready and remained that way until this morning when it went from AP to Issued again. I'd say they're just doing last minute adjustments and you shouldn't really worry.

Nice name 'stressed out' - I feel it very appropriate for my situation, indeed this forum having reviewed a few other posts !!

Further point, the 'ready' status is showing as - you are now ready for interview ?? But we already our interview and the officer said that we needn't have to come back. The system certainly needs overhaul,

I guess its back to the waiting game again...

Any way, best of luck with your journey

They don't have a lot of choices on the status they put. It certainly isn't personalized to you. All the people that post in the UK forum say in London your case will say Ready (plus all that interview verbiage) from the time your case is received from NVC until beyond the interview. So ignore the bit about ready to interview. You won't have to go back. It is not unhead of for it to take 3 weeks to process a 221g. They pile up and go back to cases whenever they get around to it. The date changes mean somebody has worked on it or touched your case. It will change to issued when it is printed.
