  1. We have been waiting for an interview date for more than a month but last week I recieved an email that said that our case has been expedited and embassy will contact soon for interview.When I checked the ceac stat tracker today it showed this , does this mean that interview date has been decided and appointment letter is sent or something else?
  2. 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....

  12. 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!
  13. Good Day, I filed for my husband case back in Nov 2017. Our case was approved and sent to US Embassy Islamabad. My husband gave his interview on Nov 29, 18 and was put into AP. Our case was in AP for almost 6 months.They ask us for evidence to proof our marriage which we provide them; however, they sent our case back to USCIS for further review. Any similar cases please share your experience! Thank you!

  15. Hi Vj Members, Thank you very much for the support here and helping. Alhamdulillah I got my CR1 visa today. It was a super busy day. I got a call today at 10 am from US embassy saying that your visa is ready and if you can fly before July 2nd (as my medical will expire on July 2nd). I asked him to give me 1/2 hours to discuss this with my family and cutting the long story short I confirmed him that lets do it and I will fly before 2nd July. I got a call again from same person around 4:15 pm to collect it from American Express Office. Alhamdulliah I collected my passport at 5 pm from the American express office. InshAllah I am flying with my wife on July 1st and will reach there on July 1st Here are few important dates: Filed my case in Feb, 2018 Got interviewed in Jan, 2019 There were few updates after the interview but everytime it was on AP. I wish you all the best in your journey and hopefully everyone will be with their spouse soon.

  18. Hi, I had my interview on 10th September 2018 at Islamabad consulate and at the end of the interview CO kept my passport and I was given 221(g) sheet asking to submit: Wedding photos and pictures of our time together Emails, chats Copies of my wife's passport pages showing entry and exit stamps We submitted everything asked on CEAC only(as I was told) on 4th October. It has been more than a week but I don't see any change in the last update date. Questions: Is it normal for no change in last update date after submitting the documents online? How long should I wait before making an inquiry? How long do they normally take to process such information? Anyone else who submitted documents only at CEAC and did not sent by mail? Here is some background information. We have been married for almost 3 years now (got married in the US). 1st year we lived apart while I got back to Pakistan. My wife moved to Pakistan almost 2 years ago and has been living here since then (besides going back home a couple of times). We had our Nikah after 6 months of my wife moving to Pakistan (My family had not met her before this as we were living in a different city). Shortly after that, we moved to my parents home as I switched jobs. We had been living with my family for almost a year now.
  19. Hi everyone! so my husband had his interview at Islamabad embassy 4/9/19, interview went good wasn’t asked too many questions everything was pretty straight forward they wanted to see our pics, and asked how we talk and how often and kept his passport, medical, and passport sized pics. Told him at the end everything is looking good and gave him a paper to register for courier service they did say you will receive an email and that’s it, 24 hours later we received questionnaire email and filled out and sent back. Everyday from that point our case update date changed daily and I emailed end of April and they had said we received your questionnaire and your case is in administrative processing which in a crucial part before issue visa, my case only updates when I send an inquiry and I’m wanting to know others experiences and feedback! Anything will definitely help.
  20. Anyone who has given his / her interview in Urdu got approved? Because I heard someone if you not choose English they thinks that a person who is going to migrating doesn't know Urdu so that makes negative impact is that right?
  21. Has anyone had their same-sex K-1 visa application approved at the Islamabad Embassy? If so, could you please advise as to the experience and specifics? And discuss any tricky issues / concerns regarding the same-sex application. We have met 2ce in one year and have no previous marriages (or divorces) or children. I am also considering being present for the interview. Finally, we are American / Pakistani, does it make a difference if the couple is Pakistani-American / Pakistani?
  22. Hey everyone! so my husband had his interview at Islamabad and it went very well! He was asked a few questions and the CO was very nice. They asked him what my name was, and how we met, and asked if he had any pics of us and how often we talked. She then said ok thank you and then handed him a paper that had pick up locations and how to set up courier service and she did mention they’d email him within a couple weeks. He got no token or any slip but kept his passport just curious if anyone else went through something similar and how long it took! THANKS
  23. Hi everyone, my husband had his cr1 visa Interview at Islamabad embassy on the 9th of April, they kept his passport and asked basic questions like where I work, when we got married, if we have any children, how we talk and how often etc..at the end the lady told him everything is good and we will email u with what to do next and also she gave him a paper on how to register for courier service. 1-2 days after the interview our case status showed as administrative processing and we received an email to answer questions and email back, it was a questionnaire for the past 15 years of addresses, phone numbers, siblings date of births and names, email addresses and social media and just basic stuff like that. Anyone else go through anything similar?
  24. Hello Everyone, For CR1 my case got updated 4th time (April 12th, 2019). I inquired them on Wednesday (April 10th). This is the 2nd time I sent them an email, first the time I send them was on March 11 and they updated my case the same day. Now I am bit confused as this update is because of my email or they did it themself? Also I got interviewed on January 17th, 2019. I read in few threads that after 4/5 updates your visa get issued. Any idea will I be getting visa issued on next update or anything else. They didn't send me any email in response to my query I really appreciate your help. Thanks
