Is there a difference on AR and AP

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Out of curiosity, I called the NVC today due to docs requested by USEM to be uploaded in CEAC still in “Submitted” status. It took more than 30 mins of music-on-hold before I got a hold of a person. The Rep was nice. He explained that because the file have already been sent to the embassy they no longer have reason to check my CEAC documents, that USEM will be the one to do that. He also said that even after USEM have viewed and received the uploaded document, the status will not change to Accepted. He went on to check on the status of my case with USEM and indicated that my file is still with the embassy. I asked again, definitely still with the embassy? He answered yes. He continued on, the file is undergoing administrative review. I had to ask, "I thought you mentioned something about administrative processing, what does it mean?". He replied, administrative review.

 

Now I had to ask, is there a difference between administrative review AR and administrative processing AP ? (On hindsight, I could had asked the Rep who assisted me).

@Hank_ out of curiosity, I have been reading a lot and listening to podcasts by lawyers for other lawyers and one of the advises was "read between the lines of those replies your client is getting from the consulate" and I wonder if it meant something or just nothing.

 

Here is USEM canned reply:
"Our records show that your visa application is still undergoing administrative processing, in order to verify your qualifications for this visa."

Here is USEM reply to Congress inquiry:

"Currently, xxxxxxx case is pending the completion of administrative processing in order to verify her qualifications for this visa."
