  1. Quick question for anyone who have dealt with Islamabad US Consulate in Pakistan. 1) how does embassy contact you to notify that you have been scheduled for an interview, by phone? email? or both? 2) Does the embassy send an email to petitioner as well to let them know there has been a interview scheduled for the beneficiary? Thank you for taking your time and helping others like me.
  2. Hello friends.. About 8 months ago, I filed a Cr1 visa for my spouse from Pakistan. I received an electronic receipt number (NOA1 in September, 2019). Today, I called USCIS to check on the status of our case. The gentleman with whom I spoke informed me that my petition may not be viewed again by a USCIS agent for another eight more months, and that it was currently at the Nebraska Center. Their website also lists USCIS processing times around 12.5-16 months. Should I believe that this is an accurate approximation? My husband is from Pakistan, so I feel with AP after his interview, we could be looking at another year or two of this. Any info regarding your experience with NSC would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  3. Hello. For Pakistan is it better to marry and apply the Spouse Visa or is it okay to just apply for a Fiance Visa if you have already met. Will I have more chances of getting denied if I do the Fiance Visa? A little background information is that the female petitioner is 9 years older and previously married to two other Pakistani nationals who have entered USA. One marriage lasted two years and the other 8.5 years. Can you please advise me of the best type of Visa to apply for in this situation?
  4. Hello! I have a question for previous Islamabad interviewers. What did you use to take in your documents with you? I haven't found a lot of guidance on this. I know what not to take in, but I'm wondering if anyone has successfully taken in a binder or plastic accordion folder. My husband has a lot of documents/support to take with him and we don't know to use. Thank you in advance!
  5. Hi, My US citizen cousin got married in Pakistan in January 2018 and her husband had his interview in June 2019. Since his interview the case has been in administrative processing with no status update. My cousin is planning on going to Pakistan to visit her husband in March and she wants to the following: As a US citizen is she allowed to go (with or without an appointment) to the US Embassy in Islamabad to inquire about her husband’s case status/ visa status? Thanks for advice. She is very stressed out. My cousin did send an email to inquire about her husband’s visa status since it’s been more than 6 months and no update. However, she did not receive any relavant information.
  6. Hello all, I recently a read a review from the Islamabad embassy for an interview that occurred five days ago where the U.S. Spouse was not allowed into the diplomatic enclave with the beneficiary. Can anyone with RECENT experience confirm or deny this? Thank you in advance! JAK!
  7.

How can I get to know about my passport and how long does it take for embassy to send the passport to AEG Islamabad?
  8. 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.

  11. Hello mates, I would like to know that how much time does application received status takes to change? It’s been a month since I stuck on application received status. I’m so worried.
  12. Would anyone know or direct me to where I can find out about how long it will take from the NVC stage to getting an interview at the Islamabad embassy for the I-130?
  13. Hello VJ community! I am in a bit of a confusion nowadays with the overall procedure of my immigration process. So basically my aunt ( mom's sister ) filed a petition on behalf of my mom and sponsored her to come to the US on a family based immigrant visa termed F41. The case took approx 15 years to complete and our case was qualifed by the NVC. As soon as our interview was scheduled hy the NVC in the Islamabad Embassy in Pakistan ( the country I reside in ), we prepared our documents and made our way to the consulate for our interview. The interview was a success. The officer congratulated us with a big smile and assured us that our application had been approved and our passports would be delivered to us within a week or so. Relieved, we left the embassy in anticipation of our visa-issued passports to return back to us. Our interview was on 9 August, 2019. Guess what? Our CEAC status is still 'Ready' with more than 60 days having passed and there is no sign of our passports being with us. I emailed the Embassy and this is what I get back: 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 MEAN, WHAT? So all of a sudden, we're getting a 221g by email and we have no timeframe to predict when our visas will be issued. My family has been through a lot and this visa means a lot to us. Does anybody have any idea how much longer can it take or anybody with a similar experience where you're approved on the spot and then put into 221g AP after a month via email, that too after YOU email them with an inquiry. This is getting on my nerves. I made this account specifically to enquire about my case, as I have been following VJ for the past couple of months to be updated with the whole process. I hope I get responded with help and wisdom! BIG FAT THANK YOU!
