  1. I am creating this thread for all the members facing the administrative processing issue during the 2020! You can share your experiences here and discuss freely! I had my interview on 9th of January 2020 and was told that my visa is approved but still facing administrative processing.
  2. I read at many articles it states that consulates have suspended "in person" activities and interviews. Does anyone have any experience knowledge ir updates on their AP cases ever since covid19 Closures? Do you, or anyone you know, have gotten their visa or passport after being in AP cases during covid19? Curious to know if islamabad consulates are still working on ADMIN PROCESS since they arent "physical - in person" activities, which can be done remotely! Thanks and good luck.
  3. Hi everyone, I am positing behalf of my friend. My friend got 221G for his H1B visa interview and asked to submit the documents. He went for interview on 12th March and VO seems to be happy and asked to submit the documents and he submitted them. After the interview his case was updated to "REFUSED" and on March 19th it changed to "Administrative Processing" and on April 2nd it changed to "REFUSED". Now my friend is stuck in India as his passport is with embassy. Is anyone facing the same issue changing from AP to Refused after US closing the embassies in India or other countries? March 12th - Interview March 12th- Refused March 19th - AP April 2nd - Refused
  4. My case has been in AP for more then 7 months. I very exhausted mentally and just cant deal with the torture. We sent more then enough evidence but the counselor said they wanted more proof. We sent so much and it seemed just hard to believe that they would want something again. They contacted us after some time and said documents where not receive. I genuinely thought that I was being discriminated. It sounded so B.S that they didn't receive the documents. I had the tracking number and gave it to them and they responded. They said they received the documents and since then heard nothing. Im frustrated. I am US Citizen and I miss my wife so much to the point where I have become depressed. Now the Cornovirus has come. Will this impact the processing? Will they still process the case? Anyone in the same boat?
  5. Back again, So I wanted to start a new discussion regarding the Administrative Process. So my husband was approved for his visa, passed his medical exam, and his passport was taken. However, my husband only had a certified copy of our marriage certificate and not the original. He was given a 221(g) refusal form that provided information on what he needed to provide, and how to submit the marriage certificate. (I provided the picture below) ***Original Marriage Certificate Mailed (2/3/2020) same day as interview ***DHL confirmed that Marriage Certificate arrived and signed for at embassy (2/6/2020) I am writing this post for two reason... To inform others and to understand that administrative process "pool" myself. I say "pool" because there are others in the same category as myself and are wondering about the process. Please help me with the questions below. True/False: Every application initially starts in the "Administrative Process" after the interview approval, then status will change to ready, then to issued. True/False: If you are missing a document and it is submitted, the embassy will notify you by email to let you know they have received the missing document. True/False: Your case creation date will change once your visa is ready to be mailed. And of course, the obvious... how long will the Administrative Process take based on a missing document?
  6. Hey if you are in AP and got your visa let me know. I am in AP and was given 221g with no other requirements. I am disheartened so any positive story will be appreciated.

  8. Hello, My case has been under administrative processing for over 24 months and I would like to withdraw my case. How do I go about this process? Any advice? Thank you.
  9. I had my interview for IR-1 class on 9th January and the interview went well and the CO told me that I am good to go and I will be receiving my passport in 1-2 weeks. My status on the CEAC says Administrative Processing is it normal to have it after interview? Since I did not receive any 221G or any list I wanted to know how many days does it take to get the Issued status?
  10. My case is Under Administrative Process And my passport will be expired in March 2020 What should I do now ?? Case in under AP because of Tax Return and we are going to send in January but confused because passport is expiring in March #Islamabad #Pakistan
  11. Our 221 status changed from Administrative Processing to “Ready”. Is this a good sign?
  12. Hello members! This is my first post (K-1 visa) I gave my interview it went really well i Was very hopeful, at the end of the interview the CO viewed my case for a while. i was told that we can not decide your case right now so you have to wait i was like should i wait or go home the CO told me you can go and we will inform you They kept my passport. ( My passport is still with them) my interview was on Date: 08-22-2019, i was not given any 221(G) neither they asked me in the email later. I wasn't aware of any Ceac website back then, so i didn't checked my status after my Interview right after 17 Days my fiance checked and it says ‘REFUSED’ and still it is ‘REFUSED’. When ever i inquire the embassy they send me the same generic email that am in AP and refused under section 221(G). could any one help me please to figure out whether i am refused at this time, AP or my visa is permanently denied? Thanks.
  13. My case has been under AP since October 2nd, for incorrect documents. I’ve sent whatever they needed within 2 weeks, to be told they didn’t even need it after all.. they’ve been holding my passport ever since. I have received no details about my case, except that it is still under AP as of now in Montreal. Anyone else on the same boat? I’ve tried sending emails, but they can’t seem to be able to help me.
  14. Hi guys, I really need someone to be in the same page as me or else I am going crazy, I have been approved on Oct 30 for my O1 Visa, on Nov 12 I went for my interview in the US Consular and the officer there told me "you have been approved please give us 3-4 days and we will send your passport through courier", after 3 hours I am receiving an email from the US Consular saying " Although you were advised at the time of your interview that your visa was approved, we will not be able to issue your visa right away nor confirm its approval at the moment, Rest assured that we will contact you when a determination has been made on your visa application case." and they put me in 221(g) without wanting more documents, explaining nothing, nor what the problem is nor how long in will take, NOW its been 6 weeks and I still did not receive any update, I feel am in limbo. I am about to lose my job if I don't go back as soon as possible. Anyone on the same page? Anyone being through the exact same thing for an advise?
  15. hope to see if there are more people getting AP after verbally confirmed at the AIT in Taipei, Taiwan that the Visa will be issued in a week... My K-1 visa interview took place 11/18/2019 and after 5 business days, status updated to "administrative processing" However, no instructions were given at the interview that any additional documents are needed, they basically said confirmed and will issue in a week. Is this just a routine check because of high volume of applicants? I'm praying that I can receive it by the end of this week, but all i've ready elsewhere is AP varies and never is it less than 1 month... Anyone else?
  16. Hello. I had my second interview. They said they will call with a decision in two days. The day after my interview the embassy emailed me to do my medical exam because the first one were expired. Two days after i did my medical exam they updated the status on CEAC. Since then nothing new. Its been1 month . I dont know what to do, to email the embassy or wait for an phone call or email from them.
  17. After 2 months on administrative processing, my wife got a rejected letter from US consulate in GuangZhou, China. The reason giving by the consulate is 212(a)(9)(B) Unlawfully present in US. My wife was an international student in US with I-94 D/S. She had 1 year OPT after graduate in 2013. She was just letting the OPT expired, did not work, did not apply for any other visa. she never received any notice letter from USCIS or IJ. Due to the family issue, she voluntarily left US in 2016. We got married in 2017. My lawyer says my wife does not subject to 10 years ban because she has I-94 D/S. What I'm gonna to do next?
  18. I am us green card holder. We applied for our kids age 17 ,19. After filing I-130 form we wait 7 months for the process and the case went to NVC( national visa center) . National visa center asked us for additional required documents. We send the documents and it took 3 more months when they forward the case to U.S. Embassy Islamabad. We got interviewed after two months. After two months we went to interview and pass the interview and told us wait for final decision. They put our case under administrative process. Our case was under administrative process for 16 months. And the embassy contracted us after 16 months for fresh medical and new pictures and updated ds-260. After submitting all those documents after a month they send us an email to come to embassy for oath and finger prints. We went there took a oath and they got our finger print. The interview officer told us you will get your visa with in 1 or two weeks. We got our passports with visa in it after a week. stressful process but finally we got it thanks god just be patient the final result will be good
  19. Hello. This is my situation. I had my second interview last month. Me and my spouse were interview Separately. Before we started the C O said he was sorry to let us wait so much. He told me, this is how we are gonna do this. I am gonna do some questions to you, then to your Husband and then we are not gonna give you a response today. We are gonna do some administrative review then we are gonna call or email with a decision. He did the exact same questions as in the first interview but it was different CO . Then he did some questions to my husband and told him that everything looks good to me. Only thing that is missing is your spouse medical(which i did 7 months ago but they are expired) He told my husband we are gonna call with a decision. I did my medicals and the last update in ceac it was right after i did the medicals. What does it mean administrative review, and what is the difference between administrative process and administrative review? How much do you think it will take do give us the answer. I will appreciate your answer thank you

  21. Hello new member K1 visa jamaica .. long story short we were put on 221g on October 28th. 1 being a letter of acquittal from a court case that was deemed inadmissible because my fiancé was the wrong suspect. Picking up police record nothing is on it he has copy of court case. He has went to the courts to get a letter of acquittal but they wont write one because nothing is on police report and said embassy should be able to just take court records... we have been getting the run around since the 28th.. who do we call ? Im thinking his lawyer that handled the case may be able to type one up ? ANYONE HELP !
  22. Hello, I was approved at my IR-1 visa interview on August 29th at the US Consulate in Casablanca. They said my visa will be issued in two weeks. Now it is almost two months later, and they haven't told me anything new. Eventually I called the consulate and managed to get a hold of them. They told me that I was 100% approved as far as the immigrant visa section is concerned, and that another section was doing a review on my case. I called the NVC too and they said that in their system I am on administrative processing. But on CEAC it just says "Ready" and does not say AP. Has anyone else experienced this? How am I 100% approved but still under review? What could this other section be? If anybody has any insight that would be amazing. Sincerely, Mo
  23. I am a permanent resident of Canada but originally from India. Came to Canada about 5 years ago as a student. I did masters in engineering here in Canada and I have been working for almost 3 years. I had my K-1 visa interview at US consulate Montreal. July 24, 2019. My visa was refused. My passport was returned to me and my case was under administrative processing. I had a B1/B2 visa on my passport, officer cancelled it as well. Stamp says (Cancelled without Prejudice). July 25, 2019. Embassy asked for my resume through an email. It was sent right away. August 30, 2019- Montreal Embassy asked me for my Passport Sept 3, 2019 -- Passport was sent to Consulate Oct 23, 2019 -- Case status update to "Application Received" Oct 25 2019- Case Status went back to "Administrative processing " Still waiting for my passport/outcome from the consulate. Any experts or applicants of similar journey out there able to comment on this whether what is happening ?
  24. Interview was on 26 July at Islamabad embassy, all went well but they needed latest IRS transcripts so translator handed me 221g and said that you have to follow instructions on this paper to submit/upload documents on ceac and you will also receive an additional questionnaire. 1) I haven’t received any questionnaire till date(which people says is a good thing). 2) interviewer asked to submit documents on ceac while following the instructions on document and on document instructions were to submit documents via courier/pickup point. 3)we have two cspa in this case and I’ve read it’s mandatory to aquire visa within one year of visa being available and our visa was current in January 2019. 4) status on ceac shows REFUSED instead of administrative processing some says it’s good some says its not when i called nvc they said your status is administrative processing. 5) submitted documents on 28 july and sent two inquiries that if they’ve received documents or not but no reply. 6) on 221g its mentioned that contact after 2 months for your case status which i did and they didn’t replied. anyone else in the same boat as of me? what is the direct email of Islamabad embassy for inquiry instead of that inquiry form? any suggestions from seniors?
  25. My father's initial status was Administrative Processing after his immigrant visa interview on June 27. He had to submit a few documents like updated police certificate and family registry and i864-A so he was given 221g. After submitting the documents on July 17, my mother's visa went from READY TO ISSUED on Aug 1 and my father's visa went from AP to READY FOR INTERVIEW. The date has been updated a few times but case still ready for interview. No feedback from embassy. Please help if you know anything about this scenario!
