  1. Was yours expedited?! I was thinking once my expedite request got approved, NVC would immediately send my file to the embassy as it was mentioned in their email. All the documents, fees and everything were submitted on August/19. On August/30, my lawyer sent an expedite request. On September/04, it was received by NVC. Then it got approved to be expedited by the US embassy on September/17. I then started to check visa status in my CEAC, it was at NVC on Sep /17, 18, and 19. From September 20 till yesterday CEAC was officially down for everyone. I checked today hoping its Ready for an interview or at least in Transit so I prepare myself for the interview and the medical but unfortunately after all this wait it still says at NVC 😒. When I read other's ppl topics about how their expedite process went so fast, I get so worried about mine. Their case went to the embassy like the next day after the expedite got approved. I'm talking about the expedite without conditions, with submitted documents and paid fees. Are the approved expedite requests get treated differently according to the level of the emergency case?!
  2. I just tried too but its still at NVC 😕. Its weird its expedited since last week and i was expecting it to be in the embassy or at least in Transit!!!
  3. But how could i know if my case is ready for the interview?! Its been approved to be expedited last week but no update from the US embassy so i get to schedule my interview. I cant even know if the case is already ready for an interview. My lawyer for the first time didn't reply to my email!! It feels to me like there is a Shutdown in the whole US government 😕
  4. It might work if they asnwered your call. Try to call them or ask your lawyer to call them if you have a lawyer. I'm planning to email my lawyer again tomorrow for a follow up with the US embassy because my file is probably with the US emabassy since its expedited since last week but no update yet from both NVC or the embassy. I emailed my lawyer yesteday but she never replied since yesterday which is weird to me cuz she always replies in the same day. I need to know whats going on because i am waiting for an instructions from the embassy to schedule my medical and interview.
  5. How about the visa approvals and denials by the US embassies?! Do you have a statistical list about it?!
  6. My case is in the Netherlands and I'm facing the same issue since last week.
  7. Finally I'm not the only one. I just finished posting a topic about this issue. But seriously it was never been down for this long like since last week!!!!
  8. Anyone here had faced this problem before with CEAC visa status check?!. NVC expedite request was approved last Tuesday on September/17 and NVC stated that my Application will be immediately forwarded to the US embassy. But on September /20 I got an email from NVC telling me to check my CEAC email. When I checked I saw that all my documents are received and accepted and I'm documentary qualified. But when I loged into my CEAC account to check the visa status to see if its in "Transit" or "Ready", I couldnt get into that page. I tried a lot since last week but it seems that the website is down. But it was never been down this long. And I could get into my documents page to see my accepted documents, paid fees and the NVC emails. Every time I put my Case number and the CAPTCHA, I get a message in red color that says the CAPTCHA i put is not correct!! I was first assuming because my application is expedited and already sent to the US embassy so that is why I couldnt check my visa status through NVC because the file is not with NVC anymore!! Am i correct?! But at the same time im asking myself, but after my interview is done, how can I check through NVC if my visa was issued or not yet!! Isnt it the same website?! My concern for now, why can't i reach my visa status after my case got expedited?! I haven't even got an email from the US embassy since last week regarding my interview.
  9. Idk. Ive been told the same too 3 to 4 days!!! I sent my expedite request on August 30, received its under review on September 04 but until now i haven't heard any update from NVC. When did you send yiur expedite req? Please keep us updated.
  10. Anyone here from the Netherlands knows how long it takes the US embassy in NL to approve an expedite request? My lawyer sent an expedite request for my IW1 visa on August/30. In September/04, we received an email from NVC stating its under review. But till now i haven't heard anything from NVC!!! I heard so many ppl here in VJ got their expedite requests approved in 2 to 3 days. Some ppl say, the timeline depends on the US embasy I'm dealing with. Is this delay means they will not approve the expedite request or it means they will approve it?! Cuz I also heard some ppl got their expedite requests rejected after one day review and some in 24 hours!!! But i never heard someone got it approved after one day review. So cuz of that I am assuming if they planned to reject my request, they would reject it since last week in a short period of time like after 1 or 2 days. ( just trying to figure out their technique of reviewing the expedite) i know i should be patient and wait but its taking longer than anyone i saw in VJ so far!!! Its stressing me out. Documents are submitted and fees are all paid since 3 weeks. Idk why I feel this expedite request we made is delaying the whole process. Maybe if we didn't ask for the expedite request, then the case is completed by now. Please anyone (especially dutch ppl) let me know your experience with the US embassy of NL, like when did u asked for an expedite? How long it took the embassy to approve it?! Is the US embassy of NL so quick in reviewing documents and requests? Thanks,
  11. Yes ofcurse I'm gonna tell them the truth and i will try not to tell more details until im asked. But i thought they will ask for the reason im going to live in a specific address. If they dont ask why you want to live there, i will for sure not answer. Maybe im a lil bit confused cuz at my asylum interview, i had to tell as much details as i can and now my mind is still set with answering as much details as i want. But i will do my best not to talk too much with the interviewer until they asked me to. Thanks a lot for reminding me. I need to ne careful in not giving unnecessary details.
  12. You mean if i have more family in shoul Should i tell them i plan to live with my mother in law, my daughter grandmother?! Or should i tell them i will live in my own place but near my child grandmother, uncles and cousins?! What is the best answer they prefer?! Is it ok to tell them im gonna live at my friend's ( she is a nurse like me and she is ready to help me staying with her till i start working. She and her family are almost like a family to me i know her since 2011) then i move to my owm place omce i get a jon. And i am eligible to work in USA cuz i have a SSN cuz i worked before in a hospital ( same hospital my late husband died in ). So i wont wait for the SSN card cuz i already have it. Do u think they will put me on AP cuz i dont have my saudi police certificate? Even if i submitted a waiver for that?! Are they gonna ask the saudi governement for my police ertifiacte and tell them im in NL?! They shouldnt do that for my safety. Once the SA government knows im in NL as a refugee, they will arrest me and send me back to SA. Cuz asylum is a crime for them. They track saudi women abroad just to make sure they didn't apply for asylum. Once they know a saudi woman applied for asylum, will send ( a saudi version James bond lol) to arrest her or kill her.
  13. Thank you so much. This reply is very helpful. I agree with you. So I should explain to them as u said that my husband topic is still sensitive to me so they consider my emotions. I just hope they dont ask too many questions about him that lead me to tell my whole life story since 2015 till now, which I prefer not to talk about things i already talked a lot about in the past. I am so tired of immigration interviews. I already had a 9 hours asylum interview last month here in Netherlands with 3 interview breaks to get my panic attacks cuz it was a so overwhelming interview to me. The worst part, after that longest interview, they didnt approve my asylum cuz of my ties to USA: my child and late husband and they told me go back to USA u lived there for 7 years in the past, u have a SSN, U worked there, u have a US husband and a child, and family in law there so that is ur third safe country. So now i have 2 lawyers who are working on my Widow visa. My asylum lawyer of NL, and my American lawyer. Such a complicated life im in now.
