I think we met on the day of interview. As i have my interview on the 8th too, it went well. Just a quick one, what's your status showing on the website ? The Consular told me that they intend to give me visa, so they gonna hold my passport for two weeks. But on the website it says my case is currently undergoing necessary administrative processing ? And idea where i stand now ?
Sonu on 2019-11-10 said:
Mine also says administrative processing. I would give it time if the co said it's approved.
Ammar Ch on 2019-11-10 said:
Yeah was not expecting that, this came as a surprise to me. Hopefully it gets updated soon in our case.
Sonu on 2019-11-10 said:
That's what usually happens from what I have heard
Ammar Ch on 2019-11-10 said:
Yeah that's what i thought until i heard from another person on this forum who had interview a day before and she is claiming she had her status saying issued, but with male applicants its different.

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.
