221g issued after interview

I had my interview last May 16. I was issued a 221g slip, it's color is white and I don't really know if the color does matter as it could indicate the category of the 221g issued to me. The CO was asking for chat logs and said I have to send my passport with the said requested document. I was able to send it last May 22 and checked my status if there was any update. It said "updated" today, May 24. I am just wondering if there is a possibility that my visa be denied under such circumstance. My fiancé and I are anxious on how long this would take as I have been reading many cases online and not many of them are positive. Thanks for reading and replying.

There are two good signs that your visa will be adjudicated to a happy ending. But, I can't say with any certainty. The signs are a 221(g) which tells us that the item(s) being requested are the last pieces of your case that the CO needs to review and based on what they interrupt to what you sent them they will draw a final conclusion. Second, if they were to draw the conclusion that your file should be closed with an approval for a visa then they will need you passport to add the visa sticker to the passport.

 

So I think you will hear something soon. The hard part is behind you so you can relax. Keep watching your status for details. You'll see AP and issue which are positive signs.

Greenbaum, thank you very much for taking time read and reply to my post. I think your advice for me to keep watch at this point will be most appropriate. I will keep my post updated as to what is happening so that people with similar cases as mine be helped as well. Thank you so much!

I would like to share an update on my case. It was updated again for the second time on May 28, 2019. Then, from AP, it was changed to READY on June 4, 2019. What should I expect from this point? The CEAC status is telling me to follow an appointment schedule provided by NVC or a notification from the US Embassy Manila. Anybody here who has an idea what this means as I do not have any appointment created. Or perhaps they will e-mail me if my visa is approved or ready? I am not sure. Anybody who has an idea?

Thanks! :)

Your case is ready for interview. Head on over to Hank's website and follow the step by step instructions. They are the best out there for USEM. Next read the P3 letter and then head on over to the sub-forum for the Philippines where others can answer your questions directly on what to do next for the Philippines.

Also, there is a sub-forum for the Philippines here on VJ that you should be a part of. It's a good place to read what others are experiencing which will only prepare you for your interview.

Manila US Embassy states that a scanned copy of the signed I-134 is fine, if you don't have the original.

Many of our answers are predicated on the information you supply in your profile. When we look at the left column and can't determine your timeline OR your Embassy it's hard for us to give you a factual answer. Our answers will sometimes be tailored to a specific Embassy hence the reason for you to complete your profile. If you look at the profile of others here, they have a flag for their country, so it makes it easy for us to reply as we can quickly determine their Embassy. The country that should be used is the country where the interview will take place.

 

So, if you could help yourself out and complete your profile that sure would help us out when we want to reply to your question with factual information.

 

Go to the top right of this page select your name (it's on the upper right-hand corner)>my profile>[below your picture on the right column] edit my profile. Scroll to the bottom and fill in "Immigration Info". There now we can better serve you.

 

Once you finish that then return and you will see a flag in your profile. Select it and see what wonderful information will open up for you.

 

Thanks
