**In regards to your question, no one can answer what they are doing. But a status update is merely every time they touch your case they put in an update. If there seems to be more updates probably means things are moving along. Doesn't necessarily mean more scrutiny, but for sure something is happening. They will notify you when you are done. I would email them monthly though just to touch bases with them.

AP is a normal regular procedure for Pakistani males. No one can tell you how long. I know someone in AP for your embassy now over 4 years. Just hang on.

No kausar,

Ready can mean different things like reviewing documents, it can be AP as i called NVC and they said u r under AP. yes at the time of interview consular asked me some documents but i provided him at the spot, but then my case updated after 7 days which means they do something with the file but then continuous silence until i email them.

when my parents were interviewed, my father was asked to provide additional document and case status remained "ready" till they received the document after which it changed to AP but my mother's status remained "ready" Upon inquiry it was informed by USEM that my mother's case was on hold due to AP of my father's case. there were many updates though. After about four weeks of AP my mother's case status was also changed to AP and next day both of them were issued visas.
