It is correct after the interview in Beirut it shows administrative processing to everybody in their check status. if they do not return your passport your visa will be prepared to be issued. When they issue the visa the check status will be changed from AP to issued

Hello Loay,

 

Is your visa immigrant or non-immigrant?

Did you see any case update between November and the last update on January 24?

We have an immigrant visa and have been waiting for a month now.

 

It is an immigrant visa, and first update was after my interview in July status: AP then another update on the 24th of NOV but also AP.

last update was on the 24th of Jan also still AP.

its annoying only cause there is no time frame,to be able to make a plan on what to do.

like okay will it be a year a month or 3 years. 😂😂😂

yeah it was due to expire in 9 months from interview, reason of AP I was living in Norway for ~10 months so they needed Police certification and asked me to file a DS-5535, which I did get the Police Certification from Norway and filed the DS form. and sent it ( that was like 4 months ago.. and still waiting in AP since then)
