Merry Christmas for everyone ?

I had an interview for my first visa demand last day at Montreal, it was ok and I'm sure that the officer was conviced by my answers, but when he finished, he was doing something else in the system and he puts me under this fu*** administrative processing.

I don't care how much time it will take but I'm really worry if it will be a denay after all this time, is it a good sign that he kept my passport there and didn't return it to me? What should mean this AP, may be because my common name and my Algerian citizenship ?

Thank you very much to give me some information.

Each case after the interview will normally go to administrative processing, it is not really a thing you need to worry about. Yes, it is a good thing he kept your passport. The length of the case being under AP will depend, sometimes it is shorter, other times it will take longer. Just be patient and keep a positive thinking about your processing. If you say that the CO was convinced by your answers then it might just be a short AP before it changes to Issued.

Good luck and Happy Holidays!

Thanks for your support Beckysue. Did they request extra document to your husband ?

Hope delay will not be too long. :(

Merry Christmas to you and your family

Hey. Yes. He has convictions and needed another court document translated. Our case is really difficult but... still have hope.

I read that if the convictions don't have to do with drugs or murder it may be possible to get a visa.

He never served any prison time nor did he pay any fines. He only was removed from the Korean army as a punishment....hopefully the administrative processing passes quickly.

It began December 21st 2016 (last Wednesday when they received the final translation. Embassy was closed Friday and Monday for Christmas. So total days processing: 2 (hahaha

!! And I am still so worried about it!!)

I found this helpful thread to ease my worry slightly.
