Does Administrative Processing mean they are processing the visa to be issued?

AP can mean that plus a lot of other things but currently based on the response the embassy gave me when I email it should be in the final stages of processing now this is the second time my case is put in AP first was because they were awaiting my medical so if you have any outstanding documents or your case just needs further review it will also show AP.
