K1 Visa Application- Approved- London

Recommended Posts

I know this has been answered but I am going to ask again as I can’t find it on the forum. 
My fiancé was approved his Visa Friday in London and I am following our case on the CEAC website after interview; 

What  are the steps the it goes through until we know it is “issued”? 
His was on Friday and is currently on “administration processing” which I know is normal. 
I know processing can take days or years but wondering what steps it takes before we know that the Visa is being sent out and officially approved. 
Thanks 

Sarah

We were London. We had to submit an extra document after the interview and still had the VISA in about 3 weeks. You should know soon since you were approved at interview as we were not. Ours simply said AP until it went to issued. Congrats on the acceptance!

It's not gonna take years if they said approved at the interview. Probably just about 2-3 weeks. 

I understand. Yes they told him 5-7 business days but I know sometimes processing can sometimes hold up the case. 
thanks for your input  😊

In London it can bounce back and forth from Ready to AP to Ready again. There is no definite pattern.  It will switch to Non-Immigrant  before Issue. When it says Issued, you know it's a done deal. The courier will email once it had been received and packaged for delivery. Delivery is the day following the email. He should have it Thursday or Friday.

It says Non Immigrant Visa now but AP underneath. 
Its only been a day but more curious than anything.

Your visa is processed by the Immigrant Visa Unit in London. It is described on CEAC status as an Immigrant Visa probably for clerical reasons to keep you sorted with the IV Unit's cases. Before it is issued the status changes to reflect Non-immigrant Visa because that's what it is.  It can be any combination of IV, NIV, Ready, or AP. The switch is your indication somebody is working on it. Most visas are in hand in a week, but not always. You may not remember Amanda and Chayne, but they were at Non-Immigrant AP for months for no discernible reason. It is rare.

Our non immigrant said AP then one day it said issued. As @Wuopozo said it bounces back and forth. Ours may have gone to ready  and we just didnt look that day :)

 Visa is now on “ISSUED” on CEAC website. 
Can we celebrate now and make flight plans ? 
Does this mean that it’s being sent now ? 
It says allow 10 working days to get to his home ?

Congrats! The advice is usually not to make any non-refundable plans until the visa is physically back in your hands.
