  1. 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/
  2. 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. 🤔
  3. 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. 

  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. This is interesting, I thought the embassies were currently not processing any applications due to the suspension of visa services worldwide.
  7. 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.
  8. Ok. I uploaded the documents a month ago.. I. Forgot. To. Click. The. Submit. Button. WOW... An entire month wasted because I forgot to click a button. I hit the submit button and they replied same day... they want me to submit originals to them using a DX courier. I feel truly embarrassed.
  9. I had my interview on December 17th of last year at London embassy. Received 221g for additional documents, submitted on February 16th to ceac. I sent them an email on March 11th asking if they had received and if there’s any updates. My ceac case changed to last updated on March 11th, and then again on the next day March 12th. Still no response from embassy but case updates 2 days in a row. Should I try contacting them again? Seems unusual since I’ve contacted them in the past and they usually email back within a couple hours.
  10. Hey! Thanks for the update! I’m happy it worked out for you both! Have a wonderful future together.
  11. I am thinking of contacting the embassy by email, does anyone know if this could slow down your case? I need to ask about if they received a certain document, but rather not take the risk if it means I get delayed by making an inquiry about it.
  12. Have you recently tried contacting the embassy at all? Sometimes when you contact them they take a quick look at your case to answer your question, and that can cause your last updated date to change.
  13. Wow, all that panic for nothing! Oh well, that’s a relief. Thanks for telling me!
  14. My visa interview was on December 17th of last year at London Embassy. The IO told me everything looked good and he would be happy to issue my visa once he receives the disposal of an arrest on my police certificate that showed ‘Under Investigation’. I was handed a refusal 221g green slip that told me additional evidence was needed in the form of an updated police certificate. After the interview concluded I checked CEAC to see the status was changed to ‘Administrative Processing’ Since then I have received my disposal and updated my police certificate which I uploaded to CEAC. This was on February 18th, which is the last time my case shows as updated on CEAC. On March 3rd the status of my case on CEAC changed from ‘Administrative Processing’ to ‘Refused’. But my case still shows as being last updated on February 18th, the day which I uploaded my documents to CEAC. Is this a common chain of events? I thought the status would of been Refused since the day after my interview so I was surprised when it said Administrative Processing instead. But now that it says Refused suddenly 2 weeks after sending the requested documents; it has me a little worried. I also thought it’s a little strange that it changed from AP to Refused on March 3rd without the case being updated since February 18th, leads me to believe they haven’t even touched my case so how could the status suddenly change? Anyways I don’t know if anyone can make any sense of this, maybe I’m being paranoid, just wanting this crazy journey to be over.
