So here's my case: I was interviewed last month. Was being put under AP, received a call last week saying they received clearance and asked for my passport to stick the visa on. I sent my passport through the CITIC bank this Sunday and it showed that they've delivered it to the embassy this Monday. Now, because we needs to get to the U.S. as soon as possible, we've been sending emails through the public inquiry form and desperately refreshing the ceac website for the last few days. It was updated Yesterday 5pm, so I'm wondering if this means they've started processing my case again or is this just a "we've received your passport" sort of update? How long does this process of sticking-visa take?

It will take a minimum of three working days. Going by my experience with the embassy after mailing in my passport, I got the “ISSUED” status on the ceac after three working days. Weekend excluded.

Thanks! Did you do anything to make them move faster (like calling or emailing) or it's just that they're fast? I heard that it can take longer. Three days would really be a great news! Did you also get an update when they received your passport? (Sorry for bombarding you with all these questions :P)

No. I didn’t do anything. I was only just checking on the status on the ceac website. After three days of receipt of passport, it showed ISSUED. No. I didn’t get any major update except for the date changes on the ceac website.

I know I probably shouldn't be sending this much questions but here I am:

A week passed and still nothing back from Guangzhou. The last update on CEAC is still last Wednesday... Does anyone know if this is normal? 

Also, at which step would a visa number be allocated to my case? If the quota for this year runs out before ceac says issued, would I still be able to get a visa???
It's such a frustrating waiting time and bless anyone who's also waiting for their IV!!
