  1. My status just went back into AP, any updates with you?
  2. Hello, in same situation as you! My case also went into AP on 26th. Both Marius and I both had our cases change to ‘Ready’ today as well. I don’t think it’s a glitch, usually just an acknowledgement that something has happened with your case, and perhaps even trying to say they are ready to issue but haven’t actually printed the visa yet. Hopefully it means our visas will be issued soon!

  4. Same here, must be slow for them because of the bank holiday, at least I’m hoping!
  5. Same exact situation as you, case went from refused to AP on the 26th, still haven’t been issued. I wouldn’t worry at all! Seems we’re both on the same boat!
  6. Just wanted to give anybody a heads up in case their about to have a medical. They do take photos digitally now but that’s not always the case. I had my first medical back in December and they took my photos digitally. Due to coronavirus I now have had to rebook for a new medical. I was confused about the 4 passport photos to bring to the medical since last time they didn’t end up needing it. I gave them a call and the lady said they’re doing ours on paper so we will in fact need the 4 passport style photographs. So maybe it’s something to do with having to redo the medical? Also for anybody who doesn’t know, if your medical expired during coronavirus you get a discount of £100, that was nice. So anybody having the medical, don’t just go by other people’s experiences, it could be different for you, unless you get a email specifically asking you not to bring the photos than you still have to bring them.
  7. Of course! My embassy is resuming visa services on July 27th. I have confidence they will respond within 6 months. I plan on leaving immediately when the visa is issued. So it’s okay for me to go even if the embassy hasn’t asked?
  8. Hello, I am currently in AP at the London embassy. I sent documents back in March to be reviewed. Due to the coronavirus my medical has expired. Do I have to wait for the embassies correspondence before I do a new medical? Can I just go ahead and do a new medical, since I already know it’s what they’ll want?
  9. UPDATE JUNE 17th: Routine visas services have been suspended at U.S. posts worldwide, but as resources allow, embassies and consulates will continue to provide emergency and mission critical visa services. Mission-critical immigrant visa categories may include applicants who may be eligible for an exception under this presidential proclamation, such as: IR/CR1, IR/CR2, IR/IH-3, IR/IH-4, SQ, SI, and certain employment-based medical professionals, as well as cases involving an applicant who may age out. While embassies and consulates may process these types of cases, their ability to do so may be limited by local government restrictions and available resources. In addition, an applicant’s ability to travel may be impacted by local laws, regulations, and travel restrictions So it seems visa services will resume for these visa categories. US Embassy in Jamaica has already confirmed they will be scheduling interviews for IR1/IR2 and CR1/CR2 beginning next week. Source is their official Facebook page. sources: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/News/visas-news/Proclamation-Suspending-Entry-of-Immigrants-Who-Present-Risk-to-the-US-labor-market.html https://m.facebook.com/USEmbassyJamaica/
  10. I agree to this, especially since they have made exemptions for professional athletes and can now be seen as mission critical. To me that seems unfair, but I guess that’s just their priorities. https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/News/visas-news/visas-national-interest-exemptions-for-certain-professional-athletes.html They’re only letting in who they care to let in right now. On the other hand, they are sinking in funds. 🤔
  11. quick question, how long after you got DQ'd at NVC did London embassy email you w/ details of your interview?

      I have been waiting over 5 weeks.. I would expect it to be longer than 2 week during the current situation.

      @MattyUKtoUS agreed, it will for sure be much longer. Just wanted to get a basis for what it was like prior to pandemic. 

  12. Unable to give a source because it’s from an email exchange between the London embassy. https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/News/visas-news/suspension-of-routine-visa-services.html This source lead me to believe it’s the same across all embassies, but I’m not sure what counts as routine visa services. News also just came out that they’ll be processing visas for medical professionals since they are in high demand. Just all insinuates that they aren’t processing other visas unless it’s important.
  13. This doesn’t seem to be true. When I asked about visa applications that are currently processing they had the following to say. I have already attended my visa interview. What will happen with my visa application that is currently being processed? If it was not possible for your visa to be issued prior to the Presidential Proclamation taking effect, your passport was returned to you.  Please sign in to your Visa Appointment Service account for delivery tracking information.   If your application is subject to additional administrative processing, or under review pending a decision on a waiver of ineligibility or for any other reason, that will remain the status of your case until you  are advised  otherwise.    If information or documentation other than your passport has been requested in connection with a nonimmigrant visa application, you can still send it in. Your case will be reviewed when routine operations resume. However, you should not submit your passport for a nonimmigrant visa case, even if it has been requested from you.    If any information or documentation has been requested for your immigrant or fiancé(e) visa application, you can still send it in. Your case will be reviewed when routine operations resume. If you have any questions about your pending visa application that are not covered here, you can contact us to request clarification after normal operations resume. Please monitor our website for details.
  14. This is interesting, I thought the embassies were currently not processing any applications due to the suspension of visa services worldwide.
  15. No, all processing has stopped and will resume when they get back to normal, which is likely not until the virus slows down. It’s real heartbreaking, I literally sent documents to be reviewed 1 day before the announcement. Now my medical may expire, and I have no idea how long it’ll take once they resume since there could be a backlog after this.
