Approval is not official until the visa has been issued........administrative processing is mandatory, and can last for many months.......Unfortunately, it can not be expedited.

All you can do is to continue checking.......a lot of people have had extended AP.  It is common......especially for certain countries.

I have contact them several time and this was their reply.Dear Applicant,

Thank you for writing to the U.S. Visa Service Desk.

We understand that want to know the status of your visa application.

Visa applications require further administrative processing, which takes additional time after the visa applicant’s interview by a Consular Officer. When administrative processing is required, the timing will vary based on individual circumstances of each case which cannot be expedited. Visa applicants are reminded to apply early for their visa, well in advance of the anticipated travel date.

We do not know the exact time frame as to when will be the visa issued by the Consulate General. Once the visa is ready for pick up you will receive a notification through email.

You can check the status of your visa in this link https://ceac.state.gov/CEACStatTracker/Status.aspx

The delivery location will hold your passport for only 30 days, after which it will be returned to the Embassy/Consulate. You must collect your passport within 30 days.

We hope this information is helpful to you.

Please visit (specific account location) to share feedback on the services we provide.

Have a pleasant day!
