  1. 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!
  2. 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!
  3. Case created on the 25th July 2018 while interview was scheduled at 11 December 2018..and now I’m in AP ever since. And only started checking my status on the CEAC website after my interview so my question is is it possible I have under AP since my case was created even before my interview? Have anyone come across something like this before? thank you very much for your assistance
  4. 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 🤲☝️
  5. 2 questions: How many people have been issued a rejection during the interview and had to complete the form DS-5535? Any idea how long "Administrative Processing" is taking currently at the US Embassy in London? My Interview was November 20th, so 2 weeks ago, and the "Last Updated" date hasn't changed since the Monday after (presumably when they received my emailed copy of the form)
  6. 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. 😪
  7. I'd like to hear from other delayed L visa holders. We are based in NY. We are Oxford graduates PhD level with work in NY and kids in school. We renewed visa in Dublin and have been delayed by more than 3 months on a spurious DS 5535 form.Both UK citizens with zero reason for this. We are working with immigration lawyers. I've seen many people delayed in starting their courses/jobs etc, but are there others out there who have come 'home' to renew? And if so, have you found yourself with commitments in America such as leases, jobs that you are unable to return to?
  8. Has anyone seen a more current document than this one regarding the US government's request for supplementary information? (i.e. the DS-5535 form that requests information about your social media, emails, family members, travel, etc.) https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2017/11/27/2017-25490/30-day-notice-of-proposed-information-collection-supplemental-questions-for-visa-applicants My understanding is that the May 2017 request and policy expired after 180 days (November, 2017). Has it been renewed? I can't seem to find any documents nor news since November that indicate either way. This was the May 23 approved request https://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/PRAViewICR?ref_nbr=201705-1405-001
  9. 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
