1 month after interview and no more visa yet!

Recommended Posts

Hi all.. Tomorrow is gonna be a month since my father's interview, until now the status at CEAC still Ready for interview. My dad said the consul told him that everything okay and he just need to wait for the visa in mail.

When I send the supporting document last year, I only include the tax return for 2013, but they never ask my dad the tax return for 2014. I'm just wondering if that's the reason while the visa is taking so long, but didn't get any email requesting the 2014 tax return.

After the interview it's administrative processing for 7 days then it went back to ready until now. The status update change,May 18, 25, 28 then June 8, but I think the reason for update is because I'm sending inquiries.

The reason for updates is they are touching your father's record. Doing their normal processing. It's not unusual for a person to have to wait a month. We have seen situations where it has taken upwards and sometimes beyond 6 months. This is the time to have patience while going through the process. Contacting them would be my next step. Here is the information if you want to do that.

Keep the faith. Are you ready to move fast because once his visa is approved he will have little time to leave the PI to enter the US before his visa expires. I hope you get good news soon.
