What is section 212(a)(5)(a) for K1?

25 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Sec. 212. [8 U.S.C. 1182]

(a) Classes of Aliens Ineligible for Visas or Admission.-Except as otherwise provided in this Act, aliens who are inadmissible under the following paragraphs are ineligible to receive visas and ineligible to be admitted to the United States:

(5) Labor certification and qualifications for certain immigrants.-

(A) Labor certification.

 

Sounds like work related reason for denial.

 

Did you have your K1 interview already? If yes what did they ask you?

 

Updating your timeline will help others to give you a more adequate response.

Hi, i will update my timeline today. I got interview last sept 7, 2018 and it's been almost 2 mos. That haven't heard my visa. I was told it will be delivered in 10 days after my interview. Today, i have been wondering what might caused the delay until I saw a post saying her passport was mailed after 3 mos. and received an e-mail of denial under that section. So i recall all of the questions in my interview and one of the questions was "Do you plan to work?" I answered maybe help his business. So I got so worried coz I have read that research that section. I am really worried now...

Didn't you receive a copy of the waybill so you can track your packet after they send it? This is what I got, but I had my interview in a different country than you.

I would contact the embassy and ask about the passport as 10 days have been long gone.

 

Don't worry about other people. IMO if you were told that the visa was approved the delay in receiving the passport is most likely caused by other factors but denial.

If they told you that you were approved it may be something else causing the delay, not denial.

Are you calling USEM to inquire about the delay. USEM is not normally this slow in releasing a visa after verbal approval is given at the interview. It does happen but it is so rare. I'd call about every 3 days till you learn what is up with the final approval.

 

Call (+632)792-8988 or (+632)548-8223 if you fail to receive your visa after 5-10 working days you must call them.

Again, call every 3 days and know that you will continue to wait. There isn't anything more you can do. Sorry.

No one has asked but what does your CEAC status say? Issued or is it in AP?

 

As Greenbaum said, it's rare for them to hold it this long after a verbal approval; but it does happen once and awhile....

 

I can't recall seeing one for the Philippines; but other embassies, even after a verbal approval, the visa can get denied after further evaluation and AP... while still somewhat rare, it can happen.

Even two weeks is a long time. Usually is only in AP for 3-4 days. Haven't seen this myself before and doesn't sound like Greenbaum has either or not recently anyways. I would keep doing what you're doing and calling the embassy.

 

Other than that perhaps can try a congress person, but they can't really make the embassy do anything, they can just nudge them maybe to make a decision one way or another.

There are benificiaries that I met in this application. We have the same consulate and the process is really so slow. I am not even under 221g compare to these 2 ladies. One just got ISSUED after 5 weeks of waiting. Her and fiancé contacted a congressman but the response of the embassy to the congressman is the same reply she got. But I think the good thing there is, they review after the email of this officer. I wonder if the file got stuck up. And after this she got issued in a week or less.  We sent a message to one senator last night U.S time. I hope to hear from them soon...

It's hard to say, usually the embassy there is pretty fast. We had ours issued and in hand about 8 days after the interview and most within 1-2 weeks normally; but keep doing what you're doing. Maybe it did accidentally get stuck somewhere, things happen, they are all humans over there too and make errors so.
