Urgent assistance needed.

Just about everyone gets this after their interview.  Based on the discussions I had with the case officer he informed me of these steps:

 

From ceac.state.gov

 

the first AP is the immigration unit doing the paperwork for approving the visa

the first ready is a notice that they are finished and the paperwork is being sent for visa issuance

the second AP is the visa issuance people doing their own paperwork

the second ready is that the visa has been issued and is currently being processed for delivery

 

Then "issue" is posted and the visa has left the BIG house to YOUR house.

 

Once you get that second ready, it should be sent out within a few days, although we received our visa before any of the various websites that allow you to look up the status said that it had been sent out. You continue to over think this process. Stay InTouch with the instructions you have received from your interview and have a little more patience. Ghana is not one of the faster embassy's to issue a visa from so I wouldn't be surprise that you don't see the visa for some weeks or months.

 

Have you checked with others from your country to see what their experience is?

Thank you. This is great info. People always seem to think that after the interview, all the CO needs to do is hit "Print" on the computer and the visa will print like receipt. It's not like that. There are many other things involved, other people need to review and sign off (supervisor, section chief, ...) Then they have to actually print the visa and do quality control on the visa.

Right, see above. And people go on vacation, they take days off, what if the section chief comes down with the flu and gone for a week or two and they need his signatures. What if they run out of the secret visa ink and have to wait for a shipment from of the secret sauce from DC (I just made that up).

not as funny as you think as the visa has hologram of the passport ID embedded in it  and the process takes special equipment and people knowledge to run it

👍   I could tell by watching the CO during our interview that he had not even looked at the case file beforehand. I'm sure there was more review after the interview that before it))))

Not a newbie but lost my old info years ago) I have been through this process before --all the way through naturalization-- This site has always been a great help to me.
