Administrative Processing 221g After Interview

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This is for my fiancé’s K1 Visa

 

 

https://ceac.state.gov/ceac/ created our case on September 21, 2018 

Interview was scheduled and completed on November 2, 2018

 

He stayed he was sworn in, fingerprinted and completed the interview. The interview was positive but they could not issue the visa due to missing documents. 

He finished the interview with a 221g white paper, requesting 2 additional documents and his passport. The documents needed were his military court records and an ORIGINAL copy of my divorce decree.

 

November 16, 2018 was “last update” on ceac.state.gov website. It says “immigrant visa application” and says “Administrative Processing”

 

Additional documents + passport were delivered to consulate via express mail (confirmed through post office tracking) on November 21, 2018. 

 

Now the ceac.state.gov says the case was last updated on November 23, 2018 (which would be today). 

 

I don’t want to post multiple times so I’d like a few questions answered, if possible.

Ive read it can take anywhere from a couple of weeks to several months for administrative processing to complete. By the looks of the case’s last update and the date of delivered documents .... does it look like the case status could change soon? 

Has anyone’s additional documents been processed quickly before ? The consulate we are going through is Jerusalem, if anyone by chance has gone through the same situation. 

My 3rd question would be: If the consulate requested his passport to be mailed to them with the documents , does it sound like a positive outcome ?

much depends on which Consulate.

My hubby is under AP too after the interview. He was given 221(g) at the interview. We submitted all the supporting documents they requested at the interview. Since the day received the documents it was the case was updated to AP, and today, it was updated again but still under AP under “immigrant visa.” I’m also getting anxious...

When I call the consulate , the person I speak to on the phone looks up the case ... but says on their end it doesn’t look like the consul requested any documents from us ... it was never recorded for 221g but it shows that they received some documents from us and the passport. 

Looking back, the white paper that was given to my fiancé wasn’t an official 221g paper, and it wasn’t even signed by the consulate officer or anything at all. 

 

Anyone know what it could mean? Also, as of Nov 30 2018 was the “last update” but case creation date is the original (sept 21 2018) and still in AP , still Immigrant Visa Application

When I call the consulate to ask of any updates, the operator tells me that it doesn’t look like a 221g paper was issued to my fiancé, BUT they did receive his passport and two documents that they requested via mail courier. 

 

Is it a bad thing that the case wasn’t even recorded as being given a 221g paper?

Does this still look like a good sign even if the case isn’t “technically” in a 221g status?
