  2. 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.

  5. 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!

  7. 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.
  8. 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....
  9. 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 🥺

  12. 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.
  13. 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.

  24. Does anyone know for sure if the US citizen spouse can accompany the beneficiary to the embassy in Islamabad for the interview?
  25. Hi VJ members, I had an interview today for CR1 in Islamabad. Everything was very smooth the interview was hardly 5 minutes and at the end, that lady gave me this 1-page white form, initially I was not sure that what this form is and I didn't even read it at the counter. I asked her to what to do with this form and she said just keep it with yourself and the form title is Immigrant Visa Section (Modernized Immigrant Visas) and it says you visa has been refused under the provision of the immigration and nationality act and also section 221g (your visa application is refused for AP) is tick marked. Under this, there is General Requirements and Evidence of economic solvency and they both are highlighted with yellow ink. Also about the passport, she said that you will get it after 1 month. My wife was also there with me and we went together to the counter but the lady asked her to stay there in the waiting area. Now I don't know what to do or what to upload and the status of my case is not changed on CEAC website. 1 more thing that initially we submitted the birth certificate from the hospital with my SSC certificate to USCIS and then NVC wasn't accepting it then we uploaded the FRC from Nadra and now on interview we took the original birth certificate from Union Council and we also gave them FRC and the hospital issued birth certificate. Please share your thoughts. Thanks alot!
