Recommended Posts

Hi i had interview last week and the officer told me all is good and my visa will be issued and that they will keep me updated and it will take about 3 days

its been week and i checked ceac that says “administrative processing”. Is it standart to see this after having sucesfull interview? Does it mean its moving forward or is it investigating?

 

Couldt find same issue in forum

thank you! :)

We are also nervous. Our interview was Nov 30 and they kept my husband's passport but on CEAC we are in AP. I searched VJ and found a range of answers, from people saying it was normal to be in AP for a few days while they process your visa and then other people who are in AP for weeks or months. I am hoping that since they kept my husband's passport and told him he would receive it last week or this, then that will be true.

Probably thats right. I called embassy yesterday and they confirmed that my visa is approved and is printing. Assiming its going to be for pick up this week. Did you call your embassy?

Husband's interview was on Nov 29th, and his status is also in AP, ours was for his CV, yay security check to Washington DC.... almost been a week since the last update, heard this takes nearly a month and also his last visas (B1's and J1. etc) were a month of AP and then issued.  We don't even know if we are approved or what, the IO told him everything looks good and he needed his CV. =\

Our status changed to Issued today. So it was in AP for 11 days, Ready for 1 day, and it turned to Issued on the 13th day after the interview. We had certainly hoped it would be faster. Now we are waiting for the passport to arrive by courier and hopefully he can fly on Monday after saying his goodbyes over the weekend.
