Hello all, looking for some advice please...

 

This visa has been a hell of a ride from the get go, anyhow, our case has been stuck in a/p since march 11, 2019 (use to update frequently before that) but it has not updated since. My case has been open since 2017 and it just feels like a never ending journey.

 

At the time of the interview they did not take my fiance's passport but said she passed the interview. They handed her two sheets of paper, one saying she needs to go through a/p (syrian passport) and another one requesting more documents.

 

Is there anything I can do at this point? Can I visit the embassy in person at my fiances location?

If i'm missing anything feel free to ask, its a little late and this is killing me lately.

 

Thanks

Unfortunately there is nothing you can do. 

 

Administrative Processing has no maximum defined amount of time, and takes as long as it takes.

Isn't Syria one of the countries on the travel ban list?  I believe you will need to submit a waiver request.

Yes, how do I go about doing that?

 

She was handed a 221g at the interview and after that we gave them all the documents they needed

Her last interview was July of 2018, however we were going back and forth through email because they wanted additional evidence. I got them everything they needed right after the new year. Case updated a few times in February a couple times and then a few times in March where the status then changed to "Administrative Processing." It has been like that since the beginning of March with no updates.

 

At what point do you guys think I should just go and get married? This is ridiculous

Ap is taking longer than 1 year for a majority of cases. There are a number of people on this website itself who are waiting 1 yr plus after interview. There was another Syrian national who got the visa after 1 year and 2 months in AP.

I believe the waivers are usually requested at the interview.  Are you sure K-1 visas are even still being given out to Syrian applicants?  I was under the impression that for the countries listed under the exec order, waivers were available only to relatives of USCs.
