  1. Hello Members, I hope you are all well. Have you recently filled the Writ of Mandamus for your IR1 ?📃✒ Have your case moved or its paused due to Covid..?📰
  2. Hi guys...my visa is Cr1...I had my interview in the end of jan 2020. My case has been pending in AP since then. As u all know that all of us got our status changed from AP to Refused around 3rd/4rth march I just want to ask anybody who got approved after that. I got few updates after 3rd march..like my date updated to 5th march...then 12th march...nd on 13th it got changed to AP again. My status went to AP again from refused on 13th march 2020. I have noticed in many cases that when a person goes to AP from refused, the person got issued visa the very next day. But, I did not get any update after 13th march when my status went from refused to AP again. Anybody with similar case? As per my understanding if a person goes from refused to AP, it can only mean that the case is done with the so called longer AP thing...otherwise why would the status change from refused to AP(when all other people still have refused status)....ANY SIMILAR CASES?
  3. How many of the F4 applicants got this? And what was the processing time minimum and maximum?
  4. So I got this DS5535 after 2.5weeks in being on AP but now refused. I filled the answers and emailed them back because that was asked. Now my question is how do I know that they have recieved my email. Also i know the people who get these have to wait a year and so. But are there any one who got rid of this in a month or two??? Would love to know about thier cases. Visa category F4 Islamabad embassy.
  5. we had our interview on 12 september and we were asked by the counsil officer that one of the family member fill in the ds-5535, when checking the status on CEAC , the case update changed date from 12 september to 18 september, but the family member with administrative process date is still on 12 september. any one knows what this means? our visa is family based F4. thanks in advance
  6. hello guys, we have an f4 visa type, and one member in the family ( my son 19 years old) was given the ds-5535 form to submit (which he did), after the interview. the CC told him not to worry, because he told her that his university will start this fall, but she assured him that he defer his entrance to the university until spring and reassured him not to worry. my question is ; 1-are all visa types with DS-5535 treated the same since its been 13 years now since we applied 2-when the counselor assured my son about deferring his entrance to university to spring, was she giving us a sign that the AP will be cleared by then. thankyou in advance for any help on this matter
  7. Hello everyone, has anyone been requested ds5535 and resume during the interview? How long did it take to be cleared? Also if anyone experienced in Montreal embassy. Thanks a lot
  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. Hi everybody. I have gone through the consular interview it’s been almost a month. It all went well according to the counselor. However at the end, he took my passport for further administrative processing (new Trump process - form ds-5535). Since then the dates have been updated two times in the case status but no further news was given to me. I was wondering if anybody had been through this process and if so how long did it take? Thanks a lot!
