Stuck in Ready Mode

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Philippines


My fiancee had her interview back in August. The interview went very well with the lone exception being that they needed a CENOMAR re-verification as the copy she had "wasn't clear." She retrieved another copy that same day and had it sent to the embassy. It took about 3 weeks to go from Administrative Processing to Ready where it has been since September 8th. I know the CEAC website where it says to check back after 2 business days is more of a form letter, but is a week stuck at Ready normal for this situation?

Everyone we have spoken to has only been able to give us the information that the passport is still at the Embassy which isn't too much information at all.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, especially if there was a number where we could get information on our specific case. Our emails and phone calls haven't gotten much back :)

Yes, your waiting time is entirely normal. Give it another week or two. Your magical day is coming soon!
