K1 Administrative Processing

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

In 2010 I lived in Syria studying Arabic as part of my university degree.

My question is whether this will mean I have to go through administrative processing after my interview in London?

And if so how long I can expect to wait?

Thanks

If you go through ap, nobody cant tell you how long.

Ap is a black hole, it could be days, weeks, months or year.

And more probaly you go through ap because you were in syria, for them they will think you were training with the terrorist, that is the way USA think about people who go to muslin country.

Get preper to wait in ap.

AP security checks are somewhat shrouded in secrecy. Nobody can say yes, no, or how long. I have followed London embassy for a long time, and I completely agree with the above answer from ilovemyman. Don't book plane tickets until you have your visa in hand, even if told approved at the interview. There is a possibility of delay issuing the visa.

One rhing is what you were doing there and other thing is what they think you were doing.

Only because you tell them you were studying, they arent going to belive you, they will investigate if that is truth.

It doesn't mean you're going to go through AP just because you were in Syria. You'll be in AP if they find it necessary. My fiancé is from Libya and he had no AP. It just depends.
