  1. thank you Tarsha - How long did it take to go to from AR to AP and finally to ISSUED?
  2. It seems that this has happened to several others on another forum.
  3. @Mohd Al Said I also recommend contacting your Senate rep. My representative was VERY helpful and was able to push things along. They have a direct back channel to communicate with the embassies and they generally respond to them very quickly and positively. I just read all 14 pages of this forum. My K1 status changed from Administrative Processing (about 2 months) to Application received today. it states: "Your case is open and ready for your interview, fingerprints, and required documents. If you have already had your interview, please check your status after two business days. If no interview was required, please check back in two business days for the status of your application." Our 'case opened' date also changed to today. I thought it would just go from AP to Ready then Issued. is this normal?
  4. Dear all, to give you guys a quick update... our status changed from Administrative Processing to Application received today. it states: "Your case is open and ready for your interview, fingerprints, and required documents. If you have already had your interview, please check your status after two business days. If no interview was required, please check back in two business days for the status of your application." Has anyone else seen this? is this normal? Our case opened date also changed to today. I thought it would just go from AP to Ready then Issued.
  5. Thank you all for the kind words and advice. We also got a g221 document request right after the interview which we sent over to them quickly. they then immediately sent us the DS5535. My senators office was also very helpful; then made several inquiries on my behalf which probably kept things moving along. I hope you all are right!!
  6. Hello all - My fiancé has been in AP for about 2 months on a K1 visa. We just received an email from the embassy 2 days ago: "We are pleased to inform you that visa is approved. To avoid any delays in final processing of your visa, you are required to promptly submit your passport along with two new photos (5×5 cm) through our courier service (UMAKS, 27 Amiryan Street, Yerevan), Monday through Friday, 09:00 to 18:00, excluding Armenian holidays..." I believe they received her passport this morning but the status still says Administrative Processing on ceac. Has this happened to anyone else?
  7. Hi, We interviews on March 22nd. We have been in AP since.
  8. Dear all - it has been a few months since I last posted here but wanted to give everyone an update. My fiance attended her intervene in Yerevan on march 22nd. Sadly, but predictably, she was not given a visa due to the Trump Travel Ban. the Officer told her that she was otherwise qualified and that he would have given her a visa on the spot if not for the proclamation. They handed her a piece of paper stating that she is refused but will be considered for a waiver, eventually.

    I-129F MAY FILERS PART 2

    hello all: Just wanted to share a quick update. We were invited to interview at the US Embassy in Yerevan a few days ago. the website took a few days to give us an appointment date but it finally gave us an opening on the 11th. However, we will not be interviewing for now per my lawyers advice. She has not heard of a single applicant that has been given a visa, including spouses and children. No iranian immigrant has received a visa (all categories) since the trump travel ban took effect on December 4th. Our lawyer advised us that the best thing to do is to try and extend our NOA2 expiration date as long as possible until the laws change. We are praying that the 4th circuit appeals court and the supreme court find this whole thing unconstitutional before our NOA2 expires. Otherwise, we will have to start all over.. As you can imagine, we are devastate and drained. Please help us by signing this petition: (just needs your name and zip code) https://action.aclu.org/secure/no-muslim-ban-ever?ms=web_171204_immigrantrights_nomuslimban Congratulation to everyone who made it to the end!
  10. Yes, unfortunately I have been hearing constant bad news. I have heard that they are not even considering waiver requests altogether. my Fiance and are actually thinking we may move to dubai instead!
  11. Yes- I have heard of fathers, mothers, brothers, and even children being denied visas from Iran since the ban went into full effect. Our plan is to wait as long as we can until we get some good news, perhaps when the courts help sort his madness out. Did you ask the embassy to extend your USCIS NOA2 expiration date? I think I will need to do that too.
  12. From what I understand, I believe @geowrian is correct.. the CO is tasked with determining whether or not an applicant is eligible for a waiver on the the spot and we must provide them with whatever we can for them to make that determination. @Leila120 thank you for the link.
  13. So my K1 visa was just process at the NVC and sent to Yerevan for an interview. I also received an email from the embassy with the instruction on how to schedule my appointment. Unfortunately, the website where I am supposed to pay for the interview fee and schedule states that there are no upcoming appointments available at this time. I called the embassy and they told me to keep checking back until the consulate section opens something up. considering that the travel ban is in full effect, we have to qualify for a waiver in order to get our visa. My lawyer said that they will determine if a waiver can be granted on the spot. Is there anyone else here at this stage in the game?
