  1. Hi, After a year and 3 months of being in AP my husband received an email last week to come for oath/fingerprints and is supposed to go 7/28! Since we’ve been in AP for a little over a year the passport did expire and I’ve made a couple inquires around the time it was expiring but of course no response! So here we are next week is the appointment and we can’t get a medical done without the passport and one that is valid/new! We are so stuck and oh btw the embassy SUCKS are replying back. SOOO FRUSTRATED! Just when you think that this is it! It’s really not 😡
  2. I was in AP since march 5 and my visa was issued on CEAC at 25 March but i got my passport on 12 June. I have just been issued with B1/B2 visa this month from #IslamabadEmbassyUSA, Now i am thinking on what to do as i have issued with one year validity which is quite astonishing and will expire in March 2021. Can you answer me as below: 1: Why i was issued one year visa? What could be reasons? Any particular reasons to it? 2: Should i travel in August with it? What you suggest would be issue on Immigration during #Covid19 Yes i have few meeting scheduled there but would that work in such pandemic? If you've traveled to US recently how was immigration response? Do they look for priority? 3: if you've traveled from Pakistan, Did you experienced any issue with immigration in Pakistan? How was your experience? Which visa category? Please share your experiences. Looking for answers.
  3. I am in AP since 21 feb 2020. The message below the refuse status has changed on 1st june. Whats the difference. Am i refused now????
  4. I'm hoping those who have received a K1 visa through Islamabad could comment on their CEAC status and processing time after the interview. Specifically, I am wondering how long after the change to nonimmigrant visa on CEAC did it take for your visa to be issued? We all know extended APs are common for Islamabad. I'm just trying to get a sense of if the cases spend more time in AP under immigrant status or nonimmigrant status, and in general if the switch to nonimmigrant means the wait should be ending soon or if people have had extended APs under nonimmigrant status. Our case has done the following: 1/28/20 Interview, told approved 1/31/20 AP (Immigrant) 2/4/20 Date update, no change in status 2/26/20 Application Received (Nonimmigrant) 3/12/20 Date update after inquiry 4/1/20 AP 5/21/20 Application Received (My timeline still reflects our first case, which was denied.)
  5. Hi Friends, So my fiance was given a white 221g with administrative processing marked on it. His passport was also kept. I emailed the Islamabad embassy asking them why he wasnt issued a visa. I got a reply back from them today. This is the reply:Dear Sir/Madam, Our records indicate that this case is in its final review. Please feel free to check back with our office after four weeks. So guys should i consider this a good sign? They didnt write the usual its in AP so just wait for it response. Plz give any feedback you guys might have!
  6. Hello Today my wife had her CR-1 Interview in Islamabad, Pakistan. They gave her 221G ( See attached Image ) form asking to upload Petitioner and Beneficiary previous marriage photographs my wife told the CO /interpreter that we don't have photos of our previous marriage she told her that is your problem and walked away . I was able to find 2 pictures of me with my ex. But my wife she can't find any pictures of herself with her ex or other family members from her previous wedding day. What should we do ? Upload what we have? They kept her Passport original marriage certificates and previous marriage termination documents for both wedding photos and NADRA FRC Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated
  7. I read at many articles it states that consulates have suspended "in person" activities and interviews. Does anyone have any experience knowledge ir updates on their AP cases ever since covid19 Closures? Do you, or anyone you know, have gotten their visa or passport after being in AP cases during covid19? Curious to know if islamabad consulates are still working on ADMIN PROCESS since they arent "physical - in person" activities, which can be done remotely! Thanks and good luck.

  10. 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!

  12. Hello all, I have a question about the passport pick up procedure after the interview at Islamabad, Pakistan. My husband will be attending his CR1 interview soon and we are wondering how to select a pick up location for his passport. Do we have to register before the interview or do we select a pick up location at or after the interview? The interview instructions say to choose before, but I am unable to do so. Thank you in advance for your help.
  13. I'd like to know if I'm just not the only one suffering with a 221(g). I am the petitioner and have sponsored my husband. My interview date: April 17, 2019 (The immigration officer asked to submit my tax transcript & proof of domicile) - What was yours? Our interview went great. Submitted required documents: May 18, 2019. They have received it & even confirmed it when I inquired about it a month later. It's JULY 4, 2019 --- I have contacted my local consulate & have even called the NVC, they say the case is in Administrative Processing and the documents have not yet been reviewed. I have submitted everything they asked for.... Anyone else on the same boat as I am? Whats your experience? They give a standard automatic response to my inquires. Any one out there who's going through the same? We can talk about it....
  14. My husband has been in AP in Islamabad since April 2019, 1 day after interview received dd5535 filed and returned, last update was 11/2019 after we sent inquiry, no updates since even after we’ve sent inquiry a couple times in December. So over Islamabad and their process 🥺

  16. We expedited request approved due to aging out and long uscis process. I received email today that NVC sent application to embassy and they will call for interview. How much time it will take for embassy to schedule interview in expedited request? ISLAMABD- Pakistan Embassy
  17. If you are called to redo a medical in anticipation of visa issuance, can the follow up interview be scheduled quickly? In other words, do they have a special category for people in that situation so they can set up an interview fast? Faster than the standard open times, I mean ... If you have any information about this, I’d appreciate it. Thank you.
  18. 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.
