That is normal. Nothing you can do but wait.

Once it changes to "non-immigrant" it shouldn't be to much longer. I'd give a week more and then call the embassy and inquire as to what is causing the delay.

I think you are in home stretch and will be approved. My understanding is it switches from immigrant to non immigrant prior to the visa being issued.  You cant do anything but wait but I think you are in a much better situation as of November 14th then  prior to that date

My status changed from Admistrative process to application received and changed again to adminstrative process what does that mean 

its a good thing , if u had a new case creation date and it changed from immigrant to non immigrant , this change means u will get ur visa in like two days , thats what i learned from other people experience

When the Embassy is ready to issue a visa, it will change to "Nonimmigrant Visa Application"; at that time, you will know that you are a few days away from getting the visa. It will go from "Immigrant Visa Application" to "Nonimmigrant Visa Application" status and then your visa changes to "Ready" ==> "Administrative Processing" ==>> "Issued" status as well. These steps sometimes transpire over a day or even a few days. Some smaller Embassy's it happens within hours.

 

Sometimes, it might skip "Administrative Processing" and go from "Ready" to "Issued".

all you say is logic , but i saw 4 or 5 cases that even it changed for them but they get issued after a lot of months or more than a year of that change from immigrant to non immigrant , i was happy when everybody told me u will get issued soon and then when i saw this people still waiting all this even after that change i felt so sad :( but thx again u always try to make me feel better , i wish i will get approaved soon really
