  1. I am a U.S. citizen by birth. My wife and I have been together for over six and a half years (married over one and a half) and she has had TPS since she was around 14. We've been going through the process of getting her permanent residency and had our interview in El Salvador at the beginning of June. When we got the email notifying us of the interview, we had about two weeks to get everything together (including an in-country medical exam) before the date they gave us. We managed to get everything they listed, even stuff that had to be done in El Salvador. However, when we got to the interview, the consular officer asked for TPS proof going all the way back to before she was 18. Now, the email mentioned needing her proof of TPS (we had her current one and her previous one with us), but not every single time she had ever registered for it. Additionally, we went through two document checks before the interview and not only was it not mentioned, they gave us back stacks of other documents at each check saying they already had this or that and wouldn't need it. The consular officer said we would be approved, pending that single piece of information, which he would "look up today" (meaning on the interview date). He said we would receive an email either way letting us know if he could find it. Also, he said if we could get photocopies of the proofs, to send them to the embassy in case he couldn't find it. We got a green sheet and an orange sheet from the officer. That night, we got photocopies of the proofs and sent them with the green sheet first thing the next morning. Today, we're over a month after the interview and not only did we not get any notice from the consular officer, any attempt we've made to contact the embassy/consulate are met with "canned" responses and no real information. They still have her passport and any documents they kept from that day. My wife has been a teacher in Texas under TPS for about 10 years and has no criminal history. She doesn't have anyone she knows in El Salvador and I had to return home for work. Currently, another family member from my side volunteered and went down to stay with her, but we are very eager to get her home. Does anybody have any experience with this or know anything that might be able to help us get her home more quickly? Sorry for the long post and thank you in advance.
  2. Hi everyone!My interview on k1 visa was 01/15/2020. After the interview they gave me 221g paper and kept my passport. And after that the status of my case changed to 'Administrative processing'. Did anyone have this? and how long can it be ?
  3. My imterview was yesterday. I gave them my civil documents at 11 and then i had to return at 1pm for my real interview. The interview was super nice, officers were super friendly and nice. The interview didn't take so long as I was expected. The CO at window 4 was very nice and patient to me and I felt so comfortable answering the questions and I felt like im talking to a friend of mine while giving some details to the answers. CO said your visa is ok to be issued and it will be issued within 10 business days, but 5 hours after I arrived home, charged my dead phone, and checked my CEAC, its under AP that takes several weeks. My lawyer said its a routine AP. ( to me it sounds like everyone goes through this AP) I just want to know why the normal routinely AP and the ugly AP have the same names?! They should pick a nicer name for the routinely one!!😑 But once I realised my original civil documents are with the embassy too and they didnt hand them back to me, I said maybe this is the reason for AP to check if my original documents are real or fake since I'm a refugee in NL and they assume all refugees are expert in faking documents. Well I feel being labled as a regugee is complicating so many things to me by putting me in difficult situations😐. Just cant wait to return to the states and get treated as a normal residence as I used to be. Should I just not worry about this AP or should I keep worrying?! I'm confused between the 2 kinds of APs. Tryna forget about it and not worry. I was super happy when the consular said its going to be issued within 10 days but that AP at my CEAC is telling me girl calm down don't be too excited not yet we are still working on this. 😤 Any experience like this plz?! Why do some ppl never went through AP things? And why do the US embassy still have my Original Civil Documents?
  4. Hello VJ community! I am in a bit of a confusion nowadays with the overall procedure of my immigration process. So basically my aunt ( mom's sister ) filed a petition on behalf of my mom and sponsored her to come to the US on a family based immigrant visa termed F41. The case took approx 15 years to complete and our case was qualifed by the NVC. As soon as our interview was scheduled hy the NVC in the Islamabad Embassy in Pakistan ( the country I reside in ), we prepared our documents and made our way to the consulate for our interview. The interview was a success. The officer congratulated us with a big smile and assured us that our application had been approved and our passports would be delivered to us within a week or so. Relieved, we left the embassy in anticipation of our visa-issued passports to return back to us. Our interview was on 9 August, 2019. Guess what? Our CEAC status is still 'Ready' with more than 60 days having passed and there is no sign of our passports being with us. I emailed the Embassy and this is what I get back: Dear Sir/Madam, Thank you for writing to our office. Your immigrant visa case has been refused under INA Section 221(g) for administrative processing, an integral part of the visa adjudication and issuance process that can neither be expedited nor waived. Unfortunately, it is difficult to predict the amount of time the processing will take and timing varies based on the individual circumstances of each case. The visa application will be reconsidered when administrative processing is complete. Please be assured that we are aware of your concerns and will process the application to completion as quickly as possible, in accordance with U.S. laws. We recognize that this process can be frustrating for applicants and regret any inconvenience. Sincerely, Immigrant Visa Unit Consular Section U.S. Embassy, Islamabad I MEAN, WHAT? So all of a sudden, we're getting a 221g by email and we have no timeframe to predict when our visas will be issued. My family has been through a lot and this visa means a lot to us. Does anybody have any idea how much longer can it take or anybody with a similar experience where you're approved on the spot and then put into 221g AP after a month via email, that too after YOU email them with an inquiry. This is getting on my nerves. I made this account specifically to enquire about my case, as I have been following VJ for the past couple of months to be updated with the whole process. I hope I get responded with help and wisdom! BIG FAT THANK YOU!
  5. Hey there! My F3 visa interview is conducted on 25th july 2019 and CO gave us a 221g form and asked for a joint sponser while we already have given one but she asked anyway. She didn't marked new joint sponser on 221g just joint sponser. The joint sponser which we already have given has income more than enough for 4 members. Now if i gave them joint sponser then how much time they are gonna take to review...Any kind of help would be highly appreciated.
  6. Hi guys, I'm a Syrian man 27 years old applied to K1 visa and had my interview in the US embassy in Amman, Jordan 27 November 2018 They told me there it takes between 2 to 3 months, but until this date 7 months passed but no answer, and the last update was in 7 January 2019 that what that website shows https://ceac.state.gov/CEACStatTracker/Status.aspx?eQs=o/iS8zDpeAKjMWCuebHqOw== My fiance started talking about giving up on me because she feels it's gonna take a lifetime and after all that maybe a rejection because of my nationality (she is American). I have to travel soon and I want to get a new passport, is there any problem if I keep the old one with me(the one I applied with)? And I have no idea about if I have to go back to Jordan once I get my visa approved or I can just send them my passport. They have told me the medical exam is only valid for 6 months! And now it's already 7 months. Any suggestions? Anybody has been through the same process? Best regards, Leo. Applied to K1 in 1 March 2018 Had the interview in 27 November 2018 Still under Administrative Processing...
