Admin Processing After Interview?

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband had his interview on June25 and was approved pending the medical documentation which they hadn't received yet. He's been waiting for confirmation from the courier that they have his green card and passport but this morning he went online and saw his case is in "Administrative Processing". I thought Admin Processing only happened at the NVC stage. Why would they do Admin Processing now, post interview? Does anyone have experience with this? Do you know how long the delay will be?

As mentioned, Admin Processing is not only common, but standard procedure after the interview and unfortunately there is no set timeline for it. Just a little longer wait :)

Anything that they do after the interview is administrative processing. The CO finishes his paperwork, submit to his supervisor. The supervisor reviews, approve and send to the IV section chief. The section chief has a final say. When all that's done, it gets sent to visa printing. Visa printing is not a simple hitting "print" on a computer like printing a receipt. It requires specialized equipment. Then they have to do quality control on the visa to make sure it reads right on the machine that the CBP uses, otherwise you'll get turned away at the POE. A typical US Consulate/Embassy Post issues hundreds, if not thousands visas, both immigrant and non-immigrant per week. All of that is called "Administrative Processing"

 

And then, there is the other type of AP, which is when a deep name check or background check is required, then it could be weeks, months, years....

Thanks. They told him he was approved at the interview but they didn't have his medical documentation yet. I wonder if that is why there is a hold up. I figured he'd have everything back by now since the interview was almost 2 weeks ago.

Yes, that too will be indicated as AP.

Did you make sure the medical information would be forwarded directly to the consulate?  Normally they'd hold onto it or forward it onto the beneficiary to give to the consulate.

In London the clinic sends the medical results directly to the consulate. The beneficiary never touches it.  She can call the clinic and ask what day it was sent.
