US Embassy Kabul 




Dear Immigrant Visa applicant,




Thank you for your e-mail. 




We have reviewed Department records and can confirm that your special immigrant visa case was refused for administrative processing under 221(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA.  We will notify the applicant when this process has completed and the application is ready to move forward.




When administrative processing is required, the timing will vary based on individual circumstances of each case, however, please note that this is an essential part of the application that can neither be waived nor expedited. We realize that these extended time periods can cause frustration and recognize the threats that many applicants now face because of their work with the U.S. government.  Unfortunately we cannot predict when the administrative processing will be concluded.




The Department and our Embassy in Kabul continue to make SIV cases a priority and work on your case is ongoing.  We continue to work to streamline the visa process where possible, while ensuring that applicants are both qualified for a visa and do not pose a security risk to the United States.  While we cannot predict when the processing of your visa will be completed, please be assured that the Embassy and the Department of State are aware of your concerns and will do all we can to see that the processing of your case is concluded as soon as possible.




While your case is undergoing administrative processing, you will not be contacted by the Consular Section.
