  1. Hi, I am in a dilemma. For Pakistan, we have 3 marriage certificates, what is the best way to upload them on CEAC Portal? Is it better to upload Urdu and English together and NADRA registration as a separate document or all in one file? Has anyone been rejected for doing one way or the other? Also, I have a question about uploading other documents such as educational record and ID cards for which there is no defined category.Can I upload it under "others" document without worrying about getting it rejected?
  2. I had interview on 3 august CO handed me 221g and ask to submit fresh AOS from joint sponsor.i upload all the required documents on Ceac portal on 7 august.it is submitted since then. My question is how long embassy takes to review these documents ?? Can we email and tell them all the documents are submitted in case the don't review it in coming days?? Us embassy islamabad
  3. we redid our medical like the embassy asked us to and also submitted required documents as requested now how long will the embassy take to review the documents? the medical has already reached them

  6. Hello, My spouse that I am sponsoring for a Cr1 visa is my first cousin. I reside in Washington where first cousin marriages are illegal. We are waiting for the interview to be scheduled, will this cause any problems?
  7. My husband is a US citizen and My process was documentarily qualified on the 18th of May 2019. Since then I’ve been waiting on my interview mail, a while back people from April 2019 were being interviewed. Any idea when I’d finally get my mail? Any day now?
  8. My husband got approved for expedite CR1 visa in Islamabad Embassy. The case status shows "Ready" since January 12, 2021 and that it is now in Islamabad, but we have not received and interview date yet (been 6 weeks now). Is this normal? We contacted the embassy, they sent a link for us to sign up for an interview appointment, but when we went it said no appointments available. The embassy said they cannot answer any questions over the phone. We are feeling very lost and any guidance would be appreciated.
  9. Hi, I hope you all are well. I saw some of the comments on the forum regarding Islamabad embassy and I thought I'd reach out to you all. My wife's case was documentarily approved in May 2020. We have not heard from NVC since then. Whenever I call them they say that the embassy will set up an interview whenever the slot becomes available and the beneficiary will be notified. I understand that the embassy was closed due to pandemic but reading some of the comments on forum the suggests that they are holding interviews for CR1 and 1R1 cases. Per the understanding of experts here, how much time would it take for us to get the interview date. It has been over a year since I last went back home to see my wife. This waiting game is not fun. Thank you in advance
  10. Hello Everyone, Since I am nearing the end of my degree, I just learned from my university that I can invite guests to my commencement ceremony (to anyone out side of the country ) next year with an embassy letter from the university. I am thinking of doing that to invite my husband and/or my in-laws to attend the ceremony if his and their visa is approved for visiting and after some time they can go back. I am not sure entirely about this since we may have ONLINE COMMENCEMENT CEREMONY in 2021 due to COVID-19 … however, if I plan to do this, will this bring in any other issue/hurdle with the spouse visa case (CR1-IR1) for my husband that he has already visited USA or something like that...? any ideas/suggestions/tips/advice on this? thanks
  11. ASKING FOR A FRIEND!! Hello everyone! I am asking this question on behalf of my friend, S and her husband, A. S & A got married in January 2018, and filed for CR1 in May 2018 through a lawyer. Then, in May 2019, A had his interview at ISLAMABAD Embassy and he got a 221g slip and they asked for tax transcripts, W-2, and chats but kept his passport. Then in July 2019, S physically went to embassy in Pakistan to ask on update and they said they have all the documents and its in process and will take a few weeks to months. the CEAC said its under administrative processing. Then, she kept contacting the embassy and involved the local senator twice too, and they got the same reply, "it's in process." until today, its the same status on the website and embassy won't give her any update on the case if her documents are accepted or not. Then after a long wait in Sept 2020, she tried finding another lawyer to see what can be done about her case because it's out of normal processing time. When the new lawyer checked with the NVC, she discovered that the old lawyer had not signed his "preparer" section/ put his appearance as a lawyer initially while filing the case and that NVC had reopened her case after being at embassy for so long. also, they discovered the lawyer had also missed questions about terrorism on the DS260 form. Now... they also discovered another issue with A's name on passport (only one name apparently)... So, now, the new lawyer gave her presence in the application, sent more pictures of the couple, and more evidence about her marriage to the NVC via email... and waiting for NVC's reply... (current status) this is such a messed up situation for them. What should she do in this case? Should she re-apply her application or appeal or what? please give serious suggestions/opinions/ advice and share what can be done to speed her process... its been almost 3 years since she got married and he's in AP since 18 months now post interview... She is really depressed and doesn't know what do.... please help. thanks... @sm2397
  12. Hello, I have heard that applicants DQ'd in March 2020 are receiving interview dates. Are there any updates regarding the applicants DQ'd in April and May 2020? Any general updates regarding the US Embassy Islamabad that how they are proceeding with the cases. Do they schedule IR1 cases first and CR1 later, or it is based on the DQ'd date?
  13. My husband received an email after being in AP for 1 years for coming in for oath and fingerprints and embassy is also requesting new medical. Anyone else go through something similar? Any idea as to how long the process takes until you get visa?
  14. Hey so my original nikkah nama is in English and is accepted by the NVC. Does anyone know, would it be accepted by the Islamabad embassy?
