Starting this forum to try and collect more information on Administrative Processing at the US Embassy in Ankara. I have been in AP for 2 months now. I am Syrian, and my wife is a US citizen. We are applying for my spouse visa. We started in March 2017. My wife is now in the US. We don't know if she should move back to Turkey to be with me. We want to know if anyone has been issued a visa waiver from Ankara under the travel ban. I noticed today that the Ankara Embassy website status check page is updated automatically (https://tr.usembassy.gov/visas/immigrant-visas/iv-status-check/)... meaning that my case updates are pretty meaningless. But ceac.state.gov seems to be more accurate. Does anyone know if case updates mean anything at all? Thanks all. Kat and Bashar
bashar26 posted a topic in IR-1 / CR-1 Spouse Visa Case Filing and Progress ReportsHi guys, just wanted to update you all.. I got my interview date and its on the 24th of September, and I got a letter that supports my case from the US General Consul in Istanbul. My wife is moving back to the states to establish domicile (we're trying to avoid anything that might cause us any unnecessary delays). I also recently got accepted to Columbia University in New York. Now I'm wondering if there's anything extra we should prepare for the interview, any tips or advice will be much appreciated. Specifically I'm wondering exactly what original documents we need to bring (apart from my civil documents) and what extra information will be helpful for qualifying for the waiver. Thank you all, bashar and kat
vana94 posted a topic in K-1 Fiance(e) Visa Case Filing and Progress ReportsHello, I submitted my papers in November and have been waiting for a response. I have a friend who submitted hers October 2nd and still hasn't heard anything. She completed her forms through a lawyer that is now telling her the U.S. is no longer excepting those applying with a Syrian passport. Is this true? Should I expect to wait at least another year? My fiance currently lives in Lebanon and we were hoping to hear sometime soon. Any input would be appreciated, thank you.
Hello Everyone , I am a freshly graduated Med Student from Syria and Currently in Syria , I haven't traveled much outside Syria except for once , when I did my one month training in the AUB in Beirut , Lebenon . The visa status is really desperate for Syrians and for me as well . I've always wanted to go to the united states , get a proper education , and get back to my country after that . I've been studying for the Medical Licensing Exam for so long , and it took alot of my time and energy , and it's a bit expensive but I accepted all of that because it's my dream to go there and get a US medical experience . I won't write about what i sacrificed or what i did to stay on this track , but what hurts the most , is I probably will be forced to give up this dream because of being Syrian . I never liked applying to the diversity Visa and I never thought I will , but this month I got so desperate that I had applied and now I'm freaking out about it because I'm reading about people who got rejected because of that ... I need any advice that I can get in order to get a non-immigrant visa , again I'm 100% that I just wanna go to the US to get the education and get back .. If anyone knows how can someone like me get a visa please tell me Thanks in advance
