  1. Hi everyone, I have applied for a k1 visa for my fiance in Pakistan. Unfortunately, my fiance has developed a "cyst" on his face which is getting bigger as time passes. I am scared it can become inflamed or infected, with the overlying skin that is becoming red, tender, and sore. He has had this for over 6 months but is getting really worse now. The typical treatment for any cyst is removal by surgery and a routine test for cancer. All unusual lumps need to be investigated by a qualified health professional. Some cysts are cancerous and early treatment is vital. If left untreated, cysts can cause serious complications including infection, the cyst fills with bacteria and pus, and becomes an abscess. If the abscess bursts inside the body, there is a risk of blood poisoning (septicaemia). The only treatment for this would be a surgical removal. My fiance is 27 years old and has never used Pakistan's medical services. Being a US citizen, I do not trust Pakistan's medical care especially for serious treatments like surgery. We both would rather have this treatment done in America. As for right now, our case is in Administrative processing and has been in AP ever since the interview in August 2018. I am thinking to pay a visit to the Islamabad embassy and show them my fiance needs to seek medical treatment in America and request them to issue the visa as this is a medical emergency. Please advise on what you think Thank you, Zoya
  2. So I had my interview last Tuesday. I was missing my family register. The CO gave me my passport back and a white form with a check on the missing document. I immediately got the family register and sent it on the same day along with my passport via Aramex. Now my status on CEAC changed to Administrative Processing. I need to know if anyone had a similar experience before. How long will it take? Is it going to take the same as the regular AP? I was only missing one document which I wasn't even informed of. Also, my fiance is doing a surgery next month and I need to be with him. I have a valid B2 visa. Am I able to retrieve my passport and visit him using it? Or Will the whole procedure be called off? Thank you.
