Single Status Update
Sorry to post on your profile here, I saw that you were the person who last updated the US Embassy Information on the site, so I figured you'd know this better than I would.
Firstly we did the F2A Visa Interview on 18th of December, and we got accepted. We still haven't received our passports back, I've emailed the Cairo embassy using the email that you wrote.
Is there anything else that I could do better? Could this also be affected by the US Government Shutdown? - Thanks!

They are working on it that means only issue the Administrative processing have no time frame on website of travel state they say it can take up to 120 days when Consulate need more time in finalizing case or making more check about some info provided, as you were not informed during interview that they need any additional documents and they kept your passports it only lead to one thing that they need more time for the case to make their decision.
Some cases here on VJ been switching btw AP and ready couple of times just keep eye on CEAC tracker .
Wait is terrible but patience is the only way.
Hey, great news man, I just checked yesterday night (27th of Jan) and it just said "Issued" on CEAC, Also just in case any one is reading this that might be confused/for you to let others know in the future, if you're accepted in the Interview process and you didn't get any 221g or anything or any refusal, then if your visa status is on Administrative Processing and they haven't contacted you before them changing the case status to that, then that generally means that they're working on the Visa itself.
I'm pretty sure this is also said in their notice under the "Administrative Processing" (on CEAC):
Please follow any instructions provided by the Consular Officer at the time of your interview. If further information is needed, you will be contacted. If your visa application is approved, it will be processed and mailed/available within two business days
"If your visa is approved, it will be processed" <--
So now we just wait for Aramex and hopefully we'll be on our way, thank you for your time buddy! ❤️
