My passport took a week to arrive after my interview. For some people it can take longer. My status stayed at ready for a couple days before saying Application received, the. It went to AP and stayed for a couple more days before finally saying issued. AP timing is different for everyone, so you can’t really put a timing on it.

I-129F sent:

Hey! My fiancé had his interview last Wednesday (the 7th) at London too. Just remember that yesterday was technically Veterans Day for the embassy so it was closed! 


So far our updates has been as follows: 

Ready (immigrant) November 7 

Administrative Processing (immigrant) November 8 - they had not received his medical yet, so they were waiting for that 

Ready (immigrant) November 8 - they received his medical 

Administrative Processing (nonimmigrant) November 9 with a changed date received to November 9


I just checked and it’s still at AP. From what I’ve read when it changed to AP nonimmigrant it’s probably being ready to be printed. I was worried too since some people seem to have this all happen so fast, until I realized that the embassy wasn’t open yesterday! So that’s a whole business day that doesn’t apply.  


I hope this helps!
