Hi @ArashD, my fiancé and I are in the same situation. Unfortunately there is no real timeline to give any indication on when your AP may be complete. The only thing you can really do is just wait and have as much patience as you possibly can.

how long so far have you been in AP? I was under the impression everyone goes through this after the interview but times differ obviously some for a day and some for months?

@Amy & John, technically everyone does undergo AP, usually just for a few days maybe a couple of weeks while waiting for visas to be added to passports, or if the officer asks for additional documents after the interview. In my case though, we have been put in a slightly different type of AP based on the fact that my fiancé was born in one of the banned countries. Even though he has been a citizen of Norway for most of his adult life, because he has a connection to a not so "friendly" country, he needs enhanced vetting and background checks. This is pretty standard for those with ties to certain middle eastern countries or countries with high rates of visa fraud, and there is no estimate as to how long the extra process will take. It looks like you are dealing with Australia though, so most likely you and your fiancé will be fine.

I think AP are very similar... in different kinds of visa. 

I suppose here are about K1. Am I wrong?

didn't say if AP was for K1 or CR1 or

if they kept the passport or

if they asked for additional documents

and no,  if K1 and not taking the passport or asking for additional documents , then AP could mean being returned to the US

and each country is so different

high fraud countries get denied more than (say, for instance) European countries

and AP for CR1 usually means 1 of 3  things

doing additional backgrround checks 

waiting for additional documents from the applicant or beneficiary

or the 3rd just the time to prepare the packet for the visa
