Husband had interview on 1st August 2019, Embassy asked for few docs. We uploaded them on Ceac website, case was under Administrative processing, Exactly after one year (1st August,2020) Status changed on CEAC. It’s saying this 

“A U.S. consular officer has adjudicated and refused your visa application. Please see the letter you received at the interview.” We didn’t receive any email or mail yet. What does it means? Please kindly help.. What we do now?

All you can do now is wait for the NOID or NOIR to come from USCIS

The case will be returned to the US and the office processing will send a letter of refusal

in normal times it would take about 6 months to receive the letter saying why visa was refused 

you have to answer with proofs within a specified time limit (stated in the letter) to refute the decision

“The letter you received at interview” usually refers to the paper explaining why he was put on AP.  CEAC has changed its system so all AP cases are showing as refused now (technically correct as AP is a 221g refusal, but it is a refusal that can be overcome). So it’s hard from what you’ve posted to know if your case is “really” refused or if it is actually still on AP. Perhaps, you can contact the embassy for clarity. What was the reason for the AP?

CEAC changed the verbiage several months ago.  Your case is refused for Administrative Processing.  If your husband was given a paper during the interview (221g) it may explain that the case needed further Administrative Processing.

Few months ago, Everyone’s Status changed from Administrative Processing to Refused. Same thing happened with my case. But In details it was saying it is under Administrative processing, if they need anything, Embassy will contact us. But 2 days ago status update date has changed and status is Refused, Status detail also has changed to “A U.S. consular officer has adjudicated and refused your visa application. Please see the letter you received at the interview.”

So Embassy now will send the case back to US? We have to go through everything? Like USCIS,NVC? interview again? Or what are the next steps ? and who should we contact to know what’s going on? Thanks

If your visa is actually denied, it will be sent back to USCIS and USCIS will send you a letter as to why it was denied. This often takes months. If you choose to file again, yes, you will have to go through the entire process again..USCIS, NVC, medical/interview, ect.. You can appeal, but that is a very lengthy process and it may just be better to reapply. First, check to see if it is really refused or just a system update, as previously suggested. Better to get a lawyer, if you do file again. I am so sorry. I have went through the same thing at this embassy. I can feel your pain.

Thanks for the information! But how we will know what’s the reason they denied the visa?

The letter would come in the mail, but you can call USCIS and ask for more information. I wish you the very best of luck.

All cases that once said "Administrative Processing" turned to "refused" on CEAC.  I would not be concerned until the status changes to "returned to NVC"  

 

Send an inquiry to the Embassy to confirm the status of your petition.

The fact that it says “please see the letter you received at interview” indicates to me it is still an AP refusal. Lots of people had the wording change.  It does not say there is another letter about denial.

If the case is returned to USCIS you may have the ability to have the case reaffirmed by USCIS instead of starting all over.
