Administrative review after interview

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance had the interview for k1 and k2 visas last week in Madrid. They jumped his order number and left him for last, he was the last person interviewed that day, there was nobody else in the consulate. He was with his son but the child was not asked anything and asked to sit down. I was also in the consulate but they did not call me for the interview. The CO asked my fiancé many questions about the child, about him, and about the relationship. All questions were answered without difficulty since we have an authentic relationship. She did not ask about wedding plans or future plans in the United States. She also asked him to show pictures of the relationship, the officer looked at some of them. After more than 45 minutes of interview, she kept the passports and told my fiance that the case needed more review and that he would receive the passports with the visas or any other determination on the case by mail. They did not give him any letter or document.

 

We did not see this coming because we have a real relationship, which lasts more than a year and a half, we have seen each other 18 times during that period of time, we have traveled to different countries on vacation, we are both originally from the same country and city (we are both Cuban but now my fiance is also Spanish citizen and lives in Spain), we are both Doctors, our families have met and shared time together. My fiancé has never been to the United States and therefore has not violated any immigration law; his criminal record is completely clean. The affidavit of support far exceeds the established limits because I (the petitioner) practice Medicine in the United States and I have a very high income.

 

The only possible negative elements are that my fiance was denied a tourist visa in the past and therefore can not travel with ESTA (visa exemption) either. Could it be considered as a negative or particular element that we are a gay couple?

 

Since the interview the case appears in CEAC as NONIMMIGRANT VISA APPLICATION, status: Application received.

 

I would like to hear opinions about the reason for this revision, and what the final result might be. 

Thank you very much in advance.

You could drive yourselves crazy trying to figure out all of the possible reasons for any possible issues in your case. :wacko::hehe: The one good thing that you seemed to lightly gloss over is that the CO kept the passports! If there was something fundamentally wrong in your visa application, the CO would likely have just returned the passports to you. 

 

There is nothing more that you can do now, except wait. It will do you no good to keep perseverating about the interview, trying to "divine out" any potential issues. Calm down !!

You paid the price for admission to this meeting, now you just have to wait until a decision has been make. Hopefully it is in your favor. If there is an issue, hopefully it is easily remedied.

 

Good luck on your immigration journey. :thumbs:

K1 and K2 visas approved after 3 days of administrative processing.

CEAC updated today to issued

Congratulations!

Reading the thread it sounded to me like the person who did the interview perhaps didn't have the authority to approve immediately (you said everyone else had left) so had to run it past someone else first.
