  1. Hello every one, I was wondering if any one know the current time line of islamabad embassy conducting IR1/CR1 interviews? Thanks in advance
  2. Hi, I am new to this website. Is there a spreadsheet for the IR-5 Visa Interview in the Islamabad Embassy in Pakistan to figure out which dates/cases they are working on and approximately when we can expect the interview for our parents? Our documents are approved by the NVC, but they have not sent them to the Islamabad Embassy in Pakistan.
  3. Here is my story: Every checklist done and NVC arranged Interview in Islamabad Immigrant Visa, spouse Interview was on March 2019. At interview submitted my born dead child's birth certificate(Hospital AKU) as stronger evidence. I was given a paper saying "the case is in administrative process from now and your case is refused at this point. The paper I was given which indicates 221(g) pending. Doesn't say exactly what documents are further required. July 2019 Petitioner (My US citizen husband) contacted Islamabad Embassy through their inquiry website with the question "please let me know if further documents are required" in response to inquiry we have received an email from Embassy stated 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 have saved the document which states my inquiry "Please let me know if further documents required". In December 2019 we have new born baby and my husband came to Pakistan in Feb 2020, we went to US consulate for our baby's CRB and US Passport, all documents submitted for the process. we were told your pending case in Islamabad will be automatically updated, my husband went back to US end of Feb 2020, after completion of all procedure regarding baby's passport and CRB. On the following month I went to Consulate again to pick the passport and CRB pick up and it was all done smoothly. now after 15 months of the interview we received another email from embassy about case refusal. Dear Petitioner, Our records mention that the consular officer ask the applicant to submit documents establishing strong marital relationship with the petitioner but our office never received any response since the day of interview. Please be prepared to experience significant delays in further processing of your case. As of March 2020, the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad suspended routine visa services. We will resume routine services as soon as possible but are unable to provide a specific date at this time. We appreciate your patience during this time. Sincerely, The Immigrant Visa Unit U.S. Embassy Pakistan Please leave your expertise so I may be able to know what actions can be taken now, in this matter. Regards SanaK

  9. Hi VJ'ers, Hope you all are staying safe. Here's a background of our story. Please keep in mind we sent an inquiry every 60 days and got the same AP response from the embassy. 10/17- Applied for father's ir5 2/18- Interview at Islamabad Embassy in Pakistan, result AP followed by DS-5535 which was filled and sent back the following day 4/19- second interview at ISL Embassy with updated medical- updates on ceac made but no visa issuance, still AP 1/21- we requested for his passport back since he was needing it to travel and attend to business, passport received, case still in AP 3/21- Latest CEAC update on case (under AP still) 4/1/21- Today, the case on CEAC updates to EXPIRING SOON We emailed the embassy today that we are awaiting for the AP to end and for the visa approval, not sure why its "expiring" due to their own delays. I know factors like the pandemic and changes in the US Administration are factors which can add to the delay, and Islamabad is notorious for long dreadful APs. Do you guys think its time we do a mandamus?
  10. Please help and encourage each other here. All of us, could help and seek help from each other. Islamabad Embassy has scheduled CR1/IR1 interviews until June 17, 2020, they have also scheduled IR5 interviews but the dates are not clear yet.
  11. Does Islamabad embassy require Applicant (spouse) to bring original divorce certificate of Petitioner with him/her on the interview (CR1/IR1) Note: petitioner is divorced in USA
  12. Hello, so my husband had his second interview oath/fingerprints in July and was told to submit new medical along with a valid passport, which we did in august, today my husband received a call from the embassy asking to confirm that it was medical and passport that he mailed and if there’s an additional phone number for him, the guy on the phone stated he’s going to pass all my husband information to the officer for processing..on ceac our case went from refused to administrative processing and date updated. Any idea if this may FINALLLY be some good news after 17 months total of AP!!!!
