Confused with checking the CEAC status

Hello, my Fiancé just had his interview and we are a bit confused with the CEAC status.

I checked it by using the case # given by NVC and selecting IMMIGRANT VISA... Status says READY

He checks it using the ID# on the DS-160 and selects NON-IMMIGRANT VISA and the status is "NO STATUS".

So which is it? Why do both work? 

His interview went well but they asked for our additional proof of relationship/contact and pictures (which he handed over) and they gave him a 221g white form saying "Admin Review" and we will call you in 2 weeks. Gave him his passport back. 

 

Does anyone know what's going on? Or which status is correct? 

 

Thank you,

Andie

Administrative processing is mandatory for all cases after the interview.  It could be a day, a week, months or even longer.  Sometimes they return the passport, and sometimes, they do not.  Unfortunately, extended administrative processing for Morocco is not uncommon.  Watch the CEAC status.  That will be your indication as to the result of the AP.....good luck.

Calm down, he did it Monday or Tuesday. I'm sure they wouldn't update it right away.

My question is which is the correct status? We have an update, thank you for your abrasive input...

Just about everyone goes through this process.  Based on the discussions I had with the case officer he informed me of the steps to complete the processing of your visa:

 

  • the first AP is the immigration unit doing the paperwork for approving the visa
  • the first ready is a notice that they are finished and the paperwork is being sent for visa issuance
  • the second AP is the visa issuance people doing their own paperwork
  • the second ready is that the visa has been issued and is currently being processed for delivery

 

Then the "issue" is posted and the visa has left the BIG house to YOUR house.

 

Once you get that second ready, it should be sent out within a few days, but the embassy controls how long it takes as there is the possibility there are additional steps prior to issuance.

 

The K-1 is treated as an immigrant visa as it is processed through each step from submission to the embassy. Once you are approved it reverts to a non-immigrant visa with immigrant intent. This is the only visa that is treated this way. This is normal and nothing to worry about. I've been told if you use your DS-160 confirmation number the search is much faster. Good luck and safe travels.
