  1. We are all keeping track of the slow processing at ISL embassy for IR1/CR1. Wanting to start this thread to share IL/DQ dates, interview tips or questions and spread hope. 😇
  2. I am a US citizen and I applied for my parents immigration visa in 2018. They were called for interview in July 2019. Both of their interviews went great and the interviewer said that they will gear good news soon. They kept their passports and gave them a slip which asked for additional documents. We submitted the additional documents in just a few days after the interview. However, it has been about 3 years and we haven't received any response from them. They still have my parents passports so my parents can't even go anywhere else. We have tried to contact them and each time they respond back the same way by saying that "please be prepared to experience significant delay before our office contacts you on guidance of further processing this case." When we check the status, its showing refused. It has been about 3 years and I have lost hope. Please let me know if you've experienced the same delay or if you can let me know what I should do now. Thank you
  3. 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. Hi, I have applied for Visitor's visa from Islamabad Pakistan. My interview was on February 11th. After asking 5-6 questions, the visa officer gave me a white slip that says that my case was refused under section 221g and further administrative processing is required. Officer told me that I will be getting an email where they will ask me some more information. After a few hours of interview, I received an email from consulate that has 10 questions including (Names and date of birth of all my siblings, names and date of births of all my children, my previous passport numbers, places where I have lived in past etc..) I have replied to their email on same day, But I have not received any correspondence from them yet. It has been more than 3 weeks, my case status on CEAC website shows refused. Please help if anyone else has gone through same process? How long will it take to verify the information that I provided them ? Thank You

  9. Hello members, For about eight months now, my husband's CR1 visa is stuck in "pending security checks" at the Potomac center. I have inquired multiple times but keep getting the same response. My congressman also wrote to them on my behalf and got the same response. We both have clean records. I can't imagine why we have remained pending for so long. Has anyone else been in this situation?

  18. Hello, We received K1-FTP notification from NVC on October 28th, 2021 that our case has been set to US embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan. We have already completed DS-160 form and paid the visa fee. However, we have not received a letter from US embassy yet. Our case status on CEAC currently shows "Ready" for interview. Can we proceed with medical examination and scheduling K-1 interview online in the next couple of weeks without Embassy letter in hand? We are thinking about scheduling our interview on November 30th. Can we show up to our interview without embassy letter or would they reject us? Thank you in advance for any guidance!

  21. Hello, Let's all gather here who have there interview scheduled at Islamabad embassy of their husband and son. My husband and son have received the interview call for November. I hope we get through.
  22. After about 3 months of waiting for my documents to be submitted they finally were, and i was given an RFE..... I added my brother as my household member to meet income requirements, but the issue came when I also added his wife. The reason I also added my brothers wife as my 2nd household member was because my brother filed his taxes jointly with her. Keep in mind she does not have any income, he just filed his taxes jointly. I saw in many forums that if your household member/joint sponsor has filed jointly sometime the embassy can give you issues for not submitting the spouses information. The RFE basically states that my sister in law is not qualified to be a household member and that I should re add her as a Joint Sponsor. I now know that I was definitely supposed to add my brother as the Joint Sponsor and his wife as HIS household member, but its now too late for that as NVC already accepted all his documents as my household member. My Question now is, WHAT SHOULD I DO? 1. Would it be an issue to have my Sister in law as my joint sponsor, and my brother who technically is the one making the income stay as my household member? This is what nvc is basically saying to do, but I feel like thats not right to have her added as my joint sponsor with barely any income? 2. Should I take the risk and just not include my brothers wife. Technically I dont need any other income to meet the requirments since my brother and me should be enough. But I am worried that the embassy might come back and potentially cause issues down the line. 3. I also heard of people submitting a letter requesting nvc to remove someone so they can re add them but I also heard that sometimes this makes the case go into AP and get lost for while. Maybe I can potentially remove my brother as a household member and re add him as my joint sponsor?? 4. Any other thoughts or ideas of how I should approach this would be greatly appreciated!
  23. Hello, I am travelling for Conference but the Website is Showing that the first available appointment is on March 2023. Why is it so ? Is this problem with website or are the waiting times are typically that long ?
  24. CR1 US CITIZEN ISLAMABAD EMBASSY PLEASE HELP, ANYONE WITH KNOWLEDGE OF THE PROCESS Im beyond confused right now. After around 3 months of waiting for my documents to be reviewed and approved at NVC, they were finally reviewed.... but I was given an RFE The summary of the issue is, I added my brother as a household member to combine his income with mine to meet the requirements. My brother is married and filed taxes jointly with his spouse the past 2 years. His spouse has little to no income as she is a stay at home wife, but JUST TO BE SAFE i added her as a household member as well because I did not want to have any issues at the time of an interview in the future. I did not want the embassy to be able to say where is your brothers spouses info since her name is also on his tax transcripts. The RFE was given because they said that my brothers wife does not qualify as a household member and to add her as a joint sponsor. My question is a few things: 1. All my other documents were accepted and submitted, so do I just leave my brother as the household member and add his wife as a joint sponsor even though she technically doesnt have much income? Does it make sense for her to be the Joint sponsor and my brother to be the household member even thought he is the one with the income? (I feel like i should have added my brother as the joint sponsor and his wife as the household member but its too late for that) 2. Should I just not include my brothers wife in this since I dont need her income to meet requirements? The only reason i added her was because my brother has filed jointly with her so I did not want any issues in the future from the embassy in case they as us for her info since her name is also on his transcripts. Is it necessary or not necessary to have her added as well? 3. Or is there any other option I have that anyone would recommend that makes sense? THANKS IN ADVANCE
