Hey guys.. my visa interview was approved yesterday and they told me to get it in a week!! Now it shows administrative possessing.. its normal though right ? 

All cases go into some form of administrative processing.  But no one can predict how long it could be....could be days, weeks, months,,,

At least all of them do and thats a fair answer lol

and technically, the visa is not really approved until it is issued.  There was a recent case from Morocco, I think, that was refused and returned to USCIS even after the consulate officer said it was approved.......but this doesn't happen often.......good luck.....Hopefully, you will see "issued" very soon.

@Saraslh  it really happened, saying Approved doesn't guarantee the visa at 100%, every file / case goes under Supervisor check before making any final decision and that's why it took long time for some people. so missileman is right, 

 

After my interview Ceac showed "Ready" for 4 days, than "Administrative Processing" Then "Issued" and even now believe me! as long as i didn't cross CBP and have my husband in my arms i wouldn't say this journey is finally over

More likely than not you will be fine. If it's "Ready" for few days, then "AP", then it will change to "Issued" within a day or two. What he was saying is, there is still a chance it can be denied. However, as mentioned, it is very very rare that happens. I would say more than 90% at this time you're good.

I don’t think he stated the fact to scare you, but it’s always good to know that it’s not a sure thing, because it is a huge decision, and one should be prepared. 

 

I showed up at the border, with a truck full of my worldly possessions and was still thinking what my plan b was if they refused me entry.  

 

Very rare occurence, but it does happen.

 

Congratulations and best wishes for your next chapter!!

We all feel that way too.  I’m 3 years into this journey (at RoC stage) and it’s always a source of stress, worry, and overthinking.  The time period between approved AoS and RoC though, where you’ll have nothing to file, is a great time :)

You're right.....My wife has been here for almost 2 years..and it has been great...We will file ROC in about 6 weeks...........then in another year, it will be time for the N-400.......it seems like there always something to worry about...lol
