Hi guys,

 

My visa application was expedited and approved last March 12, but up to now it still says in transit on the tracker but on the ceac dashboard my case is in manila. I called us Embassy manila several times but they always say wait for the email. I even emailed them but up to now still no further assistance after they replied that it’s still in transit. I emailed nvc bout this and they said that my visa application is not with them and was forwarded to manila Embassy. I read a lot of posts, the same case of mine , IR1, expedite approved and just for 2-3 days they got in transit changed to case ready. And mine is waaaayyyy to long of waiting. Is there anyone here who has the same experience? And what else do I have to do? Thank you

I've read that  you can only expedite due to medical and emergency reasons. What other possible reasons and how about yours, if you don't mind? And how did you do it? Thanks?

Oh, thank you, that's great! Makes me consider doing that. 4 years in a long distance relationship here. 1 year married :( . May I know how much did you pay or how did you do it? maybe a link perhaps.

Just follow the format and where to send it. I sent it after I paid anduploaded everything on ceac. Then they approved my expedite request after 2 days from the time sending it.

Thank you so much. You give me hope. Been worried with the whole waiting game since it takes longer this time. Best of luck on your papers. :)

Still waiting for the eligibility letter from the us Embassy manila. It’s been 3 weeks and 4 days of waiting now. 😫😫😫

Does it show "Ready" in your CEAC. If case is still in transit, you should call nvc and ask to speak to a supervisor and ask them why Such a long delay.

Yes it still says in transit. Even though it was an expedited case. I called yesterday and my case was forwarded to a supervisor and I’m calling again now if there are any updates. Do you have any idea when is the turn around time for issues like this? I’ve been waiting for 46mins now as I type this still no available nvc rep😩

Updates 

I got connected to an agent after 55 mins of waiting😩 but all she says is that they are still looking for my case. They said it’s still not in us Embassy manila. And I asked her if there are any chances that it’s missing on their part and all she says is that they are still looking for my case’s updates. Are there cases that got missing on their end? I thought spousal visa are electronically processed? I’m on a limbo here. Not sure what’s going on😫😫😫

Even I thought cases were sent electronically nowadays. Your case has to reach the embassy before anything else can be done. So that's the number one priority.

Amen to that! But never happened to my case though. They still have to look for it hoping my case file is Not Missing or whatsoever. There is a reason why it’s being expedite but just made it more prolonging the wait.Ughhhh😫😫😫
