On April 12,2018 i had my interview at the consulate of Johannesburg   and the visa was approved, but i received an email after a week that our application was subject to administrative processing...... On July 19 2018, we was asked to appear in front of the Cape Consulate at 1:30 pm for the dual interview. We were interviewed me and my wife the same day, my wife on the phone since she is in the United States. After the interview, I asked about the result. He told me ( the Officer) that he had just been contacted to do the interview, the decision will be made by the Johannesburg consulate. So since then we been in Administrative processing for year and for a year also so on ceac.state.gov when we check the status of our case it was just showing " *Your case is ready for interview* "  But recently on June 25th, 2019 it changed to administrative processing. I just wanna know if soon we will have a decision for our case?

So you lied about your relationship to your cousin?

Sister and cousin are two different familial relationships.  Not the same.

You had a Stokes interview, which means that the embassy already perceives something dodgy about your case.  And you lied about a familial relationship (that is how they see it), so there really is no way to speculate on the outcome of your AP.  Could be a lengthy process.

Thanks, It's really not fair that if they see it that way because on the day of the interview it's just a quick answer they stop you even if you going to details. But when they did called me after, I explained to the Officer my relationship with my sister, that she is my cousin but i called her sister.

Going forward, always tell the truth in all matters of immigration.

 

There has to be more to this story though, as it was a Stokes interview to begin with, so clearly they were already suspicious.

Telling the immigration official that your cousin is your sister (no matter what you call her she is NOT your sister) is misrepresentation.  If they already questioned your relationship you did not help that by lying to them.

No reason for the change in terminology other than they just got around to changing it.   Your case has been in AP since your interview.   Until they complete their review there isn't much you can do.  AP has no timeline.   You can have the petitioner contact the local Senator or Congressman to see if they can get a more detailed response from the embassy but it won't speed up the process. 

 

As others have mentioned you have to be careful how you answer questions.   Even if you call someone your sister when asked in a setting like you were in he day of the interview you must answer what she really is (your cousin) not what you feel she is.   It may not have seemed like a big deal to you but in the eyes of he officers deciding your case it most likely raised even more red flags.
