  1. Hello all, I'm just trying this blog post to see if I might get some experiences from those of you on here. To make the story short and simple, my fiancé (in Manila) went in for her interview back in Feb of this year, Feb 6th to be exact. Her interview with the consultant seemed to be going great, she was able to answer all of the questions with enough detail and had all of the documentation required. However, towards the end of the interview, when she thought it was over and the consulate was satisfied. He stood up and went to his computer, was there for a few moments, then asked another Filipino agent to speak with her. They questioned her about a missing stamp in her older passport. While, studying abroad in Malaysia (legally, had a, student visa) she had decided to visit her aunt, whom was sponsoring her visa in Malaysia. However, her aunt was living in Oman; she was approved for a visitors visa to travel to see her. While there, she had to return to Manila due to some family issues that came up. So she was never able to get that return stamp apon returning to Malaysia to continue her studies. So she was given a 221G, filed under DS-5335. We sent all the required documents from her travels during that time. As well as the additional information sheet that was given. We received confirmation that these documents were received by the consulate a few days later. Here we are now almost 10 months later... I've had my lawyer send multiple inquiries to the consulate and to no avail, we are unable to get even the slightest information. Just the same copy and paste "we're still working on it" message. If anyone, anywhere on here has some idea as to why this issue is still ongoing, I'm all ears. My lawyer doesn't even know the reasoning as too why this case hasn't been approved or anything at this time. Thanks for reading, and I look forward to hearing what you guys have to say.

  3. Hi! Is anyone in Kabul Afghanistan under AP? Has anyone gotten a visa that was under AP recently?
  4. Hi VJ peeps, Both my parents had their interview together end of June 2019. They had some documents missing so received a 221g sheet to submit the required. They submitted the documents on July 18. Throughout this period, my dad's status was at Administrative Processing and my mom's was at ready [for interview]. On August 1, my mom's status changed from Ready to Issued and she received her passport with the visa the next day. My dad's status changed from AP to Ready [for interview]. It's almost been a month now and my dad's status has not changed. We have tried e-mailing and calling. No feedback. Anyone in/or has been in the same boat? Appreciate any input.
  5. Hi, This topic might be redundant but has anyone from July 2019 interviewed in Pakistan been issued visa yet. We have been placed under administrative processing for a missing document. The case updated a few times and they confirmed that they have received the documents. We only got case refused on documentation incomplete box checked.
  6. I had my interview today at Sydney The officer checked my documents and said unfortunately your application will need to be sent for "administrative processing" and then he gave my passport back and gave me a return postage envelope and advised me that I will receive an email for further requirement. Can you please advise if I should still keep the hopes alive? All my LCA Degree and job offer letter was OK But i am supposing since I have a dual Nationality ( Pakistan) they might want to do further checks? Please advise
  7. We have been on AP since January and I have been so overwhelmed with these people. I am beyond tired of all of this waiting and waiting. I just need answers so we can go on to the next step. I feel like I want to scream.
  8. Can anyone share their experience who applied for US Visa and been to administrative processing after the interview? How long it took for you to get a result? Sharing my experience, I had my interview last April 16, 2019 and after my interview i was handed out a pink form 221g together with my passport and was told to wait for an email for 2 days for an additional information they need from me. After 2 days i got an email from them and received the DS-5535 for filling up. I send it back to them after completing the info needed after 2 days and got a reply from them that they received it. Up to now i didnt hear from them again and was checking the status from their website and getting same status that's it on AP. I just want to get an idea for those who had a similar experience here in KSA on how long the processing took them. Thanks
  9. Hi! My fiance had his interview in Rio (1/22) and he was put on AP. Today they emailed asking him for his social, phone #s, travel last 15 year, etc...basically I researched and saw these are the DS5535 questions. I'm wondering if anyone from Latin America has gone through a similar experience and how long they went through AP? I've seen a lot cases from the middle east that took 5+ months, but I'm wondering if anyone in Brazil or Latin America is in the same boat. My fiance is a Cuban refugee in Brazil. FYI. We turned in all documents asked at the interview. Thx in advance!
  10. CR1 Visa interview at Casablanca, MOROCCO Hello everyone! So my husband just recently had his interview. He said he answered all the questions correctly and it went well. But the consular officer was non informative! At the end of the interview she tells him what to do at the airport when he arrives, and asked him if he’s in trouble what number he should call (he said 911). She also said not to show anyone his passport! At this point, he thought she was going to tell him he was approved! But she said he needed to get an original translation of our marriage certificate and handed him back his passport but told him to send his passport and translation at ARAMEX. She said when everything is clear, they will call him but that it can take weeks to months! She also said that they have his other documents and they are keeping it with them. She did give him a 221 g refusal letter stating that the case needs necessary administrative processing. But he did not receive the additional documents letter or blue slip or anything else stating what he needed exactly for the additional documents. I’m confused! She only vocally stated for the ONE translation he needed. ALSO, she gave him a letter that said register and pick up your documents at ARAMEX, and the steps on how to do it. At the bottom of the letter it says “WE WISH YOU SAFE TRAVELS AND A HAPPY LIFE IN AMERICA”. AND gave him the letter to all immigrants for his SOCIAL SECURITY. My husband says that she did not say he was approved or denied! Please help me and my husband on our visa journey!!!! HELP!!! QUESTIONS: Has anyone received the letter to pick up their documents AND been asked to send their documents at the same time? Does it always say “We wish you safe travels and a happy life in America?”. I don’t want our case to be sent back to USCIS :’( Does this sound like he will be approved after AP???
  11. Hey guys, husband just received and completed the DS-5535 form through email today after the consulate received his passport/ document on 10/24. Can anyone share tips/ success stories after AP and DS-5535? Pleaseeeee tell me someone’s been issued a visa recently. I’m starting to freak out 😪😔😰😰 I’m praying to be patient 🤲☝️
  12. Husband is under administrative processing and CO asked him if he could answer some questions that they will send to him through email. He said sure. But now I’m reading about a DS-5535 form? Does everyone receive this? I think this may be the questions that the CO was talking about but she never said DS-5535 and still hasn’t sent it via email. Should I call and ask them to send it? Or should I just leave it alone? In which cases is DS-5535 form usually required? This is too much to handle. I just want it to end happily. 😪
  13. If you have read my posts from before you know that my husband had a ten year ban. And once the ban finished He was approved to reenter the U.S. Thank You to everyone. Thanks to Visajourney and its Users for helping me get through the roughest of processes with a little hope knowing that there are lots of people in the same boat as me.
  14. Hi everyone! I was googling around to find timelines of some cases that was issued with 221g at US Embassy Manila. I could not find any that are recent so I decided to create this topic. Here's my case. I have two brothers that are over 21 but are considered IR2 because of the CSPA. Their interview was last Dec 27,2017 but unfortunately, they were issued 221g asking for proof of relationship between the applicant and petitioner. We have not submitted any documents yet but I would like to find out if anyone had this issue before and if you could tell me how long was the processing time after you submitted the missing documents until your visa was issued. Regards, Mariane
