221g On K-1 => Issued: AOS Question

Posted (edited)

My fiance and I began filling out the preliminary AoS paperwork when he last visited (before his interview) just so we could get it out there as soon as we got the marraige certificate. We just are trying to be as prepared as possible and answered the basic questions on the form (Biographical stuff) and left the rest blank for when he gets here next.

 

My question is: Since he got a 221g at his interview technically refusing the visa for further administrative processing but the visa eventually became issued (Never stated refused on CEAC) do we have to answer yes on the "Have you ever been denied a visa" question on the Adjustment of Status form? I've googled this and saw a lot of conflicting info. Some people say yes outright full stop. Others say if the visa was eventually issued with no need to reapply, then you can say No. The instructions on the form say if we answer Yes to any question or answer no and are unsure we can provide Additional information.

 

is the best way to go to answer No, but then mention the 221g in the Additional information section for that question?

 

 

Thanks!

A 221g is is not a denial.  So I agree with answer no and fill out additional information that your fiance had administrative processing.

If the visa for which he applied was issued, then the answer is "NO"..it was never denied....there is no need to address the 221g at all........don't overthink these questions.
