pakistan - waiting for visa after submitting medical

Recommended Posts

My maternal grandfather applied for our family consisting of 4 persons, Mother,father, I (aged 24 almost) and my brother (aged 19). We were called for fingerprints verification at isb emb in oct 14 where they issued visa to all except me for which they said that my case was under admin process(first interview took place in july 13). My family left for u.s in jan 15 and in feb this year they called me to submit medical and passport (which they didnt ask earlier as they cited that the case was under AP).Med exam took time and i submitted the required docs on 15 mar 15. Since then I am waiting for visa. I thought that it would be a straight forward process after medical submission and visa will be issued. I emailed the embassy , they came with the standard response that your case is under AP and process is neither waivable or expeditable. If it was under AP then why did they ask for medical? Now it is going to be 2 months and the problem is that medical will expire by sept 15 and my passport will expire by 30 nov 15. I have heard that they dont issue visas on passport whose remaining validity is less than 6 months. Going by this, they will ask for passport renewal again in june and visa issuance will be delayed further.

Anybody else experienced such situation?

It would seem that they wouldn't ask for a new medical until they were ready to issue the visa but they do it all the time. Some people have given them 2 or 3 medicals and they are expensive but the embassy will say they wanted to update their records or some other stupid thing.

You can ask for your passport back and get it renewed. It is a lot of trouble to get it renewed at the Pakistani embassy here in the USA.
