221(G) process question

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello

My fiance had her interview in Bangkok, Thailand on December 16th. Everything went well and she felt she was about to get the approval but was handed a 221(g) due to missing the 1040 tax form from me (my fault and a long story about military finances blah blah blah). Our case went into "Administrative Processing" and the next day she sent the 1040 via courier. The following day the package arrived at the embassy and later that day, early morning here in CA, the status on the CEAC website changed to "Ready." My question is, What is the next step or what can we expect to happen next?

status update date is today 18th, that means your case is updated and I assume that they got the document you sent today and everything is good.

Next step, hopefully very soon, should be changed to "issued". Once the status is "issued", then you should get the passport back in several days.

Sorry for the late response... It was about eight days... 16 December she received the 221G, we responded the same day (Following the directions exactly) and she received her Visa on the 24th of December. I hope this helps, there are many diferent circumstances but I really hope it goes just as quickly for you and your fiance'

Thanks. Everything went the same way in my case as in yours. My wife got a visa! I'm so happy. Thanks for reply, Trasary
