k1 issuance in stuck in AP

hello guys,

would just like to tell you all the gist of our story,

any thoughts on this -

I had my approval last Sept.8. Thing is, I was not able to hand over my old passport which had my valid B1/B2 visa during that time because of being soo elated..(I know, I know) :cry: - I tried to go back in after the interview as I remembered it thrice but 3 different people turned me down, saying that they would just "cancel the visa in the system". tsk.

I mailed them the old passport when I received a notice from them Sept. 13 on that same day. I was on AP from this day until now..

I had a long scheduled trip abroad last Sept. 22, so I needed to pull out my new passport, and sent back Sept. 26. (Initially I thought I didn't have to deal with this as I expected the visa to be issued before the 22nd, given that it was around 10 working days from my interview date.

---But my CEAC status still has not changed. Last time it was updated was on the 21st. My son who was on the petition but will not be applying has his CEAC updated every other day.

Does it really take days for a consulate to check/view your application after they received your pending documents? I know we need to be patient and wait it out, it sometimes is just hard to figure out that at least they would have looked at it by now..

READY (check back after 2 business days) - 09/08/2016 - 09/12/2016

AP - 09/13/2016 - current (updated only last 9/13 and 9/21)

I wished I knew how things are on their side of the fence.. it renders me helpless to be absolutely clueless about what is going on.. **sigh**

:sleepy:

Late documents can add WEEKS to the process after the requested documents are received at the embassy. Normal processing can easily take two weeks, your process never started as the file was incomplete. With pulling the passport things again were put on hold. Now that the requested documents are at the embassy all you can do is ... yes.... be patient. ;)

In reality because of the passport being pulled then returned you are just starting your waiting process...


Visa chase and citizenship.. DONE!
