How long is the administrative processing at Stockholm embassy after submitting all documents?

Nobody answered so far so I'll just jump in with some basics 😉

AP depends a lot on your case and what was missing. Did they kept the passport? That's at least an indicator that the IO thinks it will resolve quick. Give it a month and then maybe email them.

thank you for responding. they wanted a joint sponsor and I submitted and they approved it right away. then they said because he's from Syria he has to go through AP. I just noticed that they updated the case but still saying refused. they have his passport and the counselor told him he's approved but need to go through AP and gave him a paper 212f.

Oh. Unfortunately a male from a MENA country will probably be in AP for quite a while. In that case forget about my idea of emailing the embassy after a month because you're looking at many months. This has nothing to do with the need for a joint sponsor but with a hardship for the embassy to get background checks done in his birth country in a timely manner.

Months up to years to be honest. Hope for the best but expect the worst.

No need to worry about the refused status, that's just the wording. Basically the IO needs to make a decision at the interview day. This can be either approved or refused. Since the IO can't approve without the finished background checks it's refused till it's resolved but that doesn't mean denied ( it would say denied if that would be the case not refused ). It will update everytime somebody touches the case even if the status doesn't change.

Maybe you can find a topic with people from other MENA countries, that will probably help you more then the Scandinavian subforum.

 

I'm so sorry for blowing your Saturday 🙈🙈

Please don't be hopeless. But do not wait and watch their Administrative Processing. It will take very long time as I am waiting almost a year from a Muslim country and 13 time update including today on my case still in refuse status 2 time medical and police clearance submitted after my interview. On July they were asking for my passport and police clearance, medical which I submitted and still they are updating on my case. After a year you may be push forward your case by submitting mandamus which my lawyer is getting ready for that.

In the Islamabad thread they were reporting same day visa issuance, so who knows.
