K1 Fiance Visa - Administrative Processing (merged)

31 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I had Interview in US Embassy Kabul on 2nd December 2018 for K-1 Fiance Visa, My Interview was very good, but at the End of Interview she give me Yellow Card and Marked Bellow Message:

Your immigrant visa application needs further administrative processing. We cannot give you a definite date when the processing will be completed, and it will likely take several months or more. You can check your visa status online using your case number at the following website address https://ceac.state.gove/ceac/. It may take three or more weeks for your case to appear in this system. Note: In Some cases, your medical exam may expire before administrative processing is complete. If this occurs, you will be required to redo your medical exam. 24 December 2018, my Case Status Appear No Status.


Could anyone guide me, when i will receive my Visa?

It means they have additional processing to complete before making a final decision to issue the visa or not. Every case goes through some sort of AP. Usually it's days or weeks, but it can be months or more.

If they didn't ask for any documents to be submitted, then it's just a waiting game.

 

It's impossible to tell how long it will actually take. There may or may not be extended background checks involved.

 

Best wishes.

It sounds like the DS-5535 (or whatever they call it...sometimes it isn't the exact form but asks for the same types of information to be submited).

Unfortunately,  it tends to take on the scale of months when that is requested.

As the paper they gave you states, there is no answer to this question as to when the AP will be complete. Even the embassy doesn’t know. It’s likely to be several months.

Thanks, but my Case in CEAC is not updated yet. it's almost 24 days gone but my Case Appear in CEAC as NO STATUS. why it is not updated yet? is there any problem?

Wait until 60 days to send an inquiry. If they told you that your case is under administrative processing then all you have to do is wait. And it seems like you were given ds5535.. unfortunately there is no time frame for it. But based on my own deduction from my research on VJ forums, it is taking anywhere from 6 to 13 months
