Hey everyone!

so my husband had his interview at Islamabad and it went very well! He was asked a few questions and the CO was very nice. They asked him what my name was, and how we met, and asked if he had any pics of us and how often we talked. She then said ok thank you and then handed him a paper that had pick up locations and how to set up courier service and she did mention they’d email him within a couple weeks. He got no token or any slip but kept his passport just curious if anyone else went through something similar and how long it took! THANKS

Administrative Processing happens to everyone.  It could just be a few days or weeks while they print and affix the visa.   Watch for updates and status changes.   Did they actually say "approved" or just "thank you"?   Give it some time and try to relax.

They gave him our pictures back and took his passport and his passport size photos and said thank you and we’ll send you an email with instructions about your visa and gave this.

Maybe your husband should have asked them if they have approved the visa?

Yeah but he didn’t really get a chance and the only thing she said was everything looks good and handed him a paper on how to register for courier service for return of visa

Don't force CO to give you a decision at the end of the interview. CO needs some time to make decision.

Instead of asking approve or not, Ask please let me know if you need any additional documents, I will happy to provide you. Then CO will reply you with a smile on his /her face, Sure if we need anything, we will contact you.

Have a nice day.

Interview ended.

I hope so inshAllah! we've been reading online about others who got no token and no 221 slip and they were told everything is ok and "looks good" and then a few days later their AP status changed to issued so we're just praying we dont have a long wait ahead

keep checking the status.. it'll soon change from "Immigrant Visa Application" to "Non-Immigrant Visa Application".. once you see that, it'll just be a day or few days until it'll say issued. Good luck!!!

If they have kept his passport that is a good sign. Had my interview in Islamabad embassy too.  But it was in 2016 they had put me in AP for about two weeks and then issued my visa.
