    O1 Visa Notification of Revocation. Please Help!

    Yes I'm speaking again with my lawyer. They have some ideas but it seems once you're in this situation, there's pretty much nothing you can do to speed it up.

    O1 Visa Notification of Revocation. Please Help!

    Hey still no news on my end, same situation as before. When I had my interview yes I had a copy of my entire application with all my evidence for my case with me. The consular officer didn't look at it though, not sure if that's standard practice or if they are supposed to?

    Yes I called the embassy back when I was first put in administrative processing. They were hopeless and pretty rude, didn't seem willing to help at all. I could try again now that some time has passed but from what I've read, most embassy's won't tell you anything. A lawyer could be a way to get some fresh advice however the cost of starting again with someone new isn't appealing. I'm sure things will progress, I just need to figure out how best to move things along!

    Yes this is my first application. Not sure why it's taking so long, I'm guessing security has become much tighter over the past year or two so everything has slowed down.

    Yes hopefully things will start moving, but at the moment I've had no news since January when I was put in administrative processing. I'm looking into other possible solutions now as it's going incredibly slowly.

    Great to hear you got your visa, mine is still processing! Sorry to hear you didn't have a great experience with Kate but good you finally got your situation sorted. If you don't mind me asking which lawyer did you move to after Kate?

    Yes refiling with premium processing is what a lot of people in my situation have been doing as it does seem to be faster than just waiting indefinitely. If you're talking about how long it took me to get an interview at the embassy after I was approved by USICS, not long, I was able to schedule an interview about a week after the approval. If you're referring to how long after the interview at the embassy I was put into administrative processing, I found out the next day by email and I've been waiting ever since for an answer from USICS...

    Hi there, This is still on going unfortunately! I spoke with my lawyer recently to ask if they can contact USCIS, as 180 days have passed since my case being received by USCIS we are now able to enquire as to the status of my case. USCIS wrote back saying they will give us some information in about 3 - 4 weeks. So until then, nothing has changed. It's taking a very long time!

    Did they tell you at the Embassy they were recommending to revoke your visa? I'm guessing that if the USCIS website still has the initial approval notice then they might not have received your Embassy's decision. I could be wrong though. Either way, with my case it doesn't say anywhere that my status has been revoked or even recommended to be revoked, it just says administrative processing. I only found out they were recommending to revoke my approved status through an email from the Embassy. I guess it depends on what they told you at the interview? What do you mean when you say 'applying GC'?

    Hey, I think the CEAC site is the same for everyone. I was told at the end of the interview they would need to review my case in further detail, then the next day I received an email saying they were recommending to revoke my visa. Now the website just says 'Administrative Processing'. No updates yet and it's been 4 and half months since my interview. I know this waiting period can vary greatly depending on each case, some are resolved very quickly, some I've read about have gone over a year. I'm hoping I'm not the latter. Have you checked your case status here; https://egov.uscis.gov/casestatus/mycasestatus.do With this you can at least see if USCIS has received your case or not. I can see that they received my case in February, so one would hope that it wouldn't be too much longer if we know they have it. Hopefully this has been helpful! Sorry I don't have better news, it seems once you're put in this situation you're left high and dry so all you can do it remain hopeful your case will be seen quickly.
  11. Yea I've spoken to a few other firms, the general consensus is either to wait for a response or withdraw and reapply. Both options aren't great as waiting indefinitely could mean I could lose the job offers that got me the initial approval, but then reapplying is costly and there is no guarantee it'll get approved a second time round. So that's why it would be good to know if there is a possible end in sight to the waiting period for someone in my position.
  12. I was told that since Trump came into power it's become much more strict and that it never used to be so tricky.
  13. Yea I have lawyers who put my case together and told me what I need to provide. I guess it's like I was saying, that the London US embassy is just particularly strict compared to other embassy's.
