Visa waiting

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I checked https://ceac.state.gov/ for the visa status. Here it is:


Status update date: Jan 05

''Your visa is in final processing. If you have not received it in more than 10 working days, please see the webpage for contact information of the embassy or consulate where you submitted your application.''

I've been waiting for the visa for over 2 weeks since my interview in Dec 22.

Is there anyone got the interview the same week as me? If yes, you got the visa yet?

I think it takes long because of their Christmas and New Year days off, but I don't know if it is counted 10 working days from the interview date or last status update one. Should I make an inquiry now or just keep waiting?

Thanks for advice!!!

Our K-1 VISA was approved at the interview in Honduras on December 10, and still no word on the VISA being ready. It says 'ISSUED' on the site, but not available for pickup yet and we called only to be told "You just have to wait until it is ready"

It's so frustrating because it's been almost a month and it's supposed to be ready in just 10 days or less.

Anyways maybe its just processing issues because they are changing some things at the beginning of the new year

It's 10 working days from the actual status update on the site, being January 5th and you are correct in assuming the holidays delayed things. You should get it within two weeks from that date (Key word being should). Your status says Issued so it has been stamped and is on its way to you :)
