  1. Ws, Please review step 5 of immigrant visa process https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/the-immigrant-visa-process/collect-and-submit-forms-and-documents-to-the-nvc/step-5-collect-supporting-documents.html Check the documents required by the country at https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/Visa-Reciprocity-and-Civil-Documents-by-Country.html . We brought originals of all the documents submitted. Just make sure that you also bring pictures of your sibling over the years. You should get a visa appointment soon. Maybe it’s delayed because of holidays. I remember I did call NVC to check the status after documents were approved. We had to wait for couple of months before interview date as well. But if you are concerned, ask your sibling to call NVC.
  2. Yes, we received the welcome letter in August 2018. My family immigrated in late March 2019. You can check the timeline under my profile.
  3. Thank God. My sister's Visa was issued after about a month in AP. Visa category - F4. No questionnaire, no AP check on 221-g. CO gave 221g for additional documents and asked for family pics and kids academic records. Case was in AP since interview 01/31. Case was updated on 02/07, 2/13, 02/20, 02/25. It went to ready for a few hours and went back to AP on 2/25. And on 02/26 the status is issued. Thank you so much for all VJ members especially @paki-guy @PK-FB-4 and @Munazza. I don't wish AP on even my worst enemy. It's very stressful. The only way to get over it is to just put this wait as back burner and live your daily routine. Easier said than done but it's possible. Keep on following up but don't obsesses yourself. One day this will be over and real journey will start for your loved ones. Wishing all the best to everyone!
  4. I don't think it will harm to fix and put spouse's document under his/her name even if you have to re-submit. When did you upload them? I believe it takes approximately 7-10 business days before they review them.
  5. Yes, you need to upload joint sponsor documents under their names. One other import note is that if your joint sponsor files taxes jointly with their spouse, you will also need I864-A (https://www.uscis.gov/i-864a) and joint sponsor's spouse's W-2, 1099 etc. A lot of people just upload I-864 which just wastes time.
  6. A good read https://vdocuments.mx/guiding-your-clients-through-the-fog-administrative-processing.html
  7. It's all guesses. Only God or people who actually work on these cases know what's involved. Honestly the wait time is absolutely appalling. Most of people who work in IT field would tell you that a database search only takes few seconds or minutes. Even if you search across multiple databases and cross match and do data analysis it should only take few minutes/hours.
  8. @Shazyyo How often you or your mom were contacting the embassy, NVC or congressional representatives during this painful journey?
  9. Were you able to contact the embassy? If not - Here is the page where you can submit the request to continue the case https://pk.usembassy.gov/visas/immigrant-visa-inquiries/ You can mention that your case is under Administrative Processing and they should not let it expire since it's beyond your control to expedite the AP.
  10. Did you send them an email or called asking if all the documents they required were received?
  11. Did you mean, your younger sister is under AP since April 4th 2017?
  12. My sister recently went through F4 visa interview. Her case was put on AP. CO asked for family pictures. She only had one at the time of interview. She is asked to courier more pictures. The case is showing under AP. So anyone going to F4 interview, bring family pictures with you. I thought it was asked more commonly during IR/CR1 or K1 cases. I have a question though. My niece will be turning 21 in couple of months. What happens if she turns 21 and the visa is approved after that? I know she will qualify under CSPA since it took four years before F4 case was approved. But for CSPA calculation, do they have to schedule another interview or it's automatically calculated?
  13. So, Is the status showing ready now ? If your case is expiring soon and you send an email to embassy and let them know that you are waiting for their administrative processing to finish and still waiting for your application approval, they remove the expiration flag. Hopefully your painful wait will be over soon and you will be asked go through a new medical since it must have expired already. Best of luck!
  14. So, Is 221-g given to every applicant? Do they ever issue the visa the same day or everyone has to go through AP ?
