I wanted to ask this question here because I can't find anyone else going through the same thing.
My husband had his interview Jan 30,2018. Consular officer told him his visa was refused under the president proclamation 212(f). His ceac status still says refused. I emailed them what I can do to appeal this decision and here is the email I got from them:
Please note that the case is pending mandatory administrative process. Following the new presidential proclamation, the consular officer found him ineligible for a visa under Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, pursuant to Presidential Proclamation 9645. The decision cannot be appealed. The consular officer is reviewing his eligibility for a waiver. To approve his waiver, the consular officer must determine that denying his entry would cause undue hardship, that his entry would not pose a threat to the national security or public safety of the United States, and that his entry would be in the national interest of the United States. This can be a lengthy process, and until the consular officer can make an individualized determination on these three factors, your application will remain refused under Section 212(f). You will be contacted with a final determination on your application as soon as practicable.
Please if anyone is going through the same thing help me figure this out.
