  1. I wanted to write a post with an attempt to give others that are facing the dreaded “Administrative Review” process encouragement. My fiancé had her consular interview in HCMC Vietnam. At first there were a few “blue sheets”, but then it seemed everyone was approved. Later, they started turning blue again. We were worried but knew that we had everything in order. They called us up, had us swear to tell the truth and then had me sit down. The interview was in Vietnamese and my fiancé stated that the interviewer was not translating some of the questions correctly. This made her pause. At the end, they provided the “blue sheet”. I went to the window and asked about it. I told the officer that we would have everything the next day as I needed to return to the USA. We got to work that afternoon and had everything together the next morning. This was difficult as we needed to contact individuals that she had not seen for years, an attorney, translators, and others. We returned to the consulate and waited for three hours. We were provided a second “blue sheet” that stated that they had everything required and would make a decision. I knew that during the first interview she was asked to provide a few additional documents. However, I did not know until then that she expressed concern that she would ever be able to obtain them. These documents were not ones that I had ever read about others being asked for on Visa Journey or other sites. The consulate officer asked her why she would state that the documents would be almost impossible to obtain, but we got them in less than 24 hours. We contacted Attorney Marc Ellis and wrote letters to the consulate within two weeks. We then sent updates each time I travelled to Vietnam (and we travelled to other countries on vacation) with photos and copies of passport stamps. We contacted the consulate every month only to receive the same reply. After with months I contacted the consulate via the website as normal to state that she was pregnant and that I did not want our baby to be born there. About a week later (two days after I left the country) a Consular Officer and local employee showed up at her home. The employee said, “give us your phone”. They both went through her phone contacts, social media and asked many questions about who various people are and about our relationship. They left after thirty minutes. Two days later another employee called to say that she needed a new medical examination and that she was approved. I know that there are many on this site that want to judge others and state that things are easy if one is prepared. Some will also state that one should get married and file a new petition after being placed in Administrative Processing. While I do not want to give anyone advice, I know how stressful this situation is and just want others to know that not all Administrative Processing leads to denials.

    Not only was it required for the beneficiary, they also insisted that I fill one out too. Please make sure that you have one for yourself!
  4. I am now in HCMC for the interview on Monday. We have all documents organized in a folder and hope all goes well. We feel confident and afraid at the same time...odd feelings. We have more than triple-checked, but know things sometimes get left out. We will probably inventory everything again tomorrow.
  5. Hey congrats on your progress. I just received my NOA2 today and am wondering about the next steps. Is your interview date the soonest they had available and will it be in HCMC?

    Looking forward to hearing back from you.

  6. I had the same exact issue. Go into your browser settings and delete your history. After doing this, I have not had the issue again. You may need to delete cookies, but I did not.
  7. I am surprised that active military members have to meet this requirement! I really wish that the U.S. Government would waive the majority of these requirements for those serving our country!
  8. I was thinking about this, but am concerned that the immigration official(s) at the POE may think she will return after a few months. Do you know how long ago these others did this? Do you know if they were questioned about the return ticket?
  9. We just scheduled the interview for September 25th. There were many dates available in HCMC for September. I REALLY wanted to schedule it for the 5th, but my work schedule would make it rough. I wish that the HCMC Consulate did not care so much about the petitioner attending. Then again, at least we have the interview and the latter part of this process seems to be much faster!
  10. Could you obtain a copy of the organizational chart? Then, have someone from HR write a letter in their letterhead? Is the parent firm publically traded? If so, many filing reports will list the subsidiary.
  11. I read that NVC may wait until there are sufficient files to "fill a box" before sending files to some embassies. It may be because there are not as many beneficiaries in one country.
  12. I was reading that some receive the "electronic" file, but wait to contact the beneficiary until the actual "paper" file reach the embassy or consulate.
  13. I also sent an email a couple months ago, but never received a response. I hope the fix the problem though.
  14. I bet it is much higher. It seems some members dissapeared from the site. Some I was "stalking" have not updated their status or logged into the site for weeks.
