  1. Thank you! You were right, this was a good thing! The following day our visa status changed to "Issued" and we received a phone call from Colombian embassy that our visa was ready to be picked up! October 5th visa in hand!!! Thanks sooo much to all for the support.
  2. Hi Gina! I know we are in the same boat...I feel so anxious. Our status updated today from "Refused" to "Administrative Processing" 😩...
  3. Yes, I felt it was very unclear what they mentioned. Also, BEFORE my husband even went on the interview on Sept. 1st, we had to send a huge PDF of like 80 pages with all of the scanned documents that they required, I guess because of these times of COVID they wanted to make sure nothing was "missing." The I-130 was not mentioned on that massive list!! πŸ˜… That's why this AP is a bit confusing to me, since we had everything they asked of us...
  4. Oh thank you for this tip! So, upload I-130 AND I-130A separately, not in one PDF? Did you upload it in the section that said "Optional Documents" under the beneficiary?
  5. Yes, that was the suggestion made by my immigration paralegal friend... She said to just send the approval and that they can look up the case according to that. Now that I think of it, I think that was bad advice.
  6. Just wanted to give an update 09/21. I received an email from the Embassy about my administrative processing. They simply asked (translated): "Thank you for contacting us. We have visualized that your appointment was on September 1, 2020. Could you please tell us if you have the petition for this case, if so, please upload it to your NVC account and then send it to us by this means scanned in PDF and thus be able to pass it on to the officer in your case." The message was quite unclear to me about which petition in particular..I feel as though there are many. πŸ˜‚ I asked my friend, who is an immigration paralegal, about this message and she said to upload my I-130 Approval Notice of Action and send it to them. Seems like that's all they are asking for now?? 😡
  7. Yes, it seems that the officer was new, he was kind of confused about how to ask the questions in Spanish. I understand your anxiety! I look at the CEAC status daily and it has only updated once and says they're still doing administrative processing. They didn't require additional documents from us, which is the most frustrating part I have a friend from Bolivia who went through a similar process with the "refused" status and that, eventually, it changes to issued, etc... it's just a matter of waiting, which is frustrating for all. If they kept your passport, etc. I'm sure you will be approved in no time as well. =D
  8. Thank you! Yes, I felt the same way about it, but I suppose it's a part of this whole process..whew πŸ˜…
  9. Congratulations!!!! This is wonderful news for you both! How many business days for you to receive the approval?
  10. Yes, that's what I thought, maybe because of his past rejections. I emailed the Embassy asking if they needed anything more from us and they said no additional documents were necessary. πŸ˜“ I am praying for the best!
  11. Yes, lots of patience and just a waiting game. I hope for the best for you and your husband as well!!
  12. Thank you, Natalia!πŸ˜ƒ Seems as though AP is quite common, so I guess no need to worry much.. now just a waiting game!πŸ˜…πŸ˜…
  13. I am in the same boat! Currently in AP since last Tuesday and awaiting final decision.
  14. Also,another note, the Embassy contacted me via e-mail and said we are in the 221G Administrative processing phase and that no additional documents are required. Simply a waiting game...
