I’m curious to know how long have you remained in each case status after the interview. 

 

My interview date: 6/14/19

- AP 6/14/19 (221g)

- Ready 6/26/19

- Ready 7/1/19

As long as it takes, there is no set time or schedule. Check the process and also the progress forum to see some examples. 

 

Good luck on your immigration journey.

Thank you. I’m specifically interested to know the possible timeframes in which people have remained on ready. I think that it’s not that detailed in the progress forum.

May the process forum. Maybe nobody has taken the time to measure what you seek. They maybe too busy or worried about another aspect of their visa journey.  There are no possible or predicted times given as the embassy/consulate has to take care of the "behind the scenes"....printing, sorting, review, checking, basically anything that they want to do. Some of the embassies/consulates in the tougher high-fraud countries, i.e., North Africa, Middle East, Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia: South tend to have long AP times. Check out regional forums in those regions for some idea of possible (the sky is the limit) time frames.

For K-1 when it is near issuance it will be transferred to NIV. Can switch between Ready and AP many times as they go through their checks. AP can be somewhat of a black hole, which is why you see suggestions on the forums to come over prepared to interviews. Even things as simple as uploading one form that was missing can result in months long delays. There’s no real timetable once you’re in AP.

When the Embassy is ready to issue a visa, it will change to "Nonimmigrant Visa Application"; at that time, you will know that you are a few days away from getting the visa. It will go from "Immigrant Visa Application" to "Nonimmigrant Visa Application" status and then your visa changes to "Ready" ==> "Administrative Processing" ==>> "Issued" status as well. These steps sometimes transpire over a day or even a few days. Some smaller Embassy's it happens within hours.
 
Sometimes, it might skip "Administrative Processing" and go from "Ready" to "Issued".

CR-1 or K-1 doesn’t matter. AP is the same. It is an undefined period of time. Could be a few days, could be 8 months. Nobody knows and results vary. 

 

It’s near impossible to get anything other than an automated response. You typically just have to wait it out. Technically the status per CEAC states to wait a minimum of 60 days before contacting so doubt you’ll receive a response until those 60 days are up, but even then it’s likely to just be an automated, generic response.

 

This is why people so strongly urge to bring all required documents to the interview and avoid AP at all costs.
