J1 visa administrative processing

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I applied for a J1 visa at the Guadalajara American Consulate on august 10th 2015. I was informed my case would be placed under administrative processing. I was asked for additional documents and I sent those on august 13th 2015. I was born in Cuba, buy I've been living out of the country the last 16 years. Is there someone in this situation?.I must be in the US on August 3 but my case is still in administrative processing. There have been no updates in my case since the interview.

Hello everyone

I’m still waiting for the approval of my visa. I am very concerned, on the website of the US Consulate in Guadalajara you can see there are many cases under administrative processing :( :( . Anyone have any idea how long it may take?.

Yes it can be updated without changing the status. From what I got each time someone works on your case the case gets a new update date, which's a good thing.

From my readings online, people usually get their visa few days after the first case update! So keep your fingers crossed, I'm sure you'll get it soon.

If you don't mind me asking, what's the purpose of your J1? Are you an exchange student or a researcher?
