Hi just a quick one, what's your status showing on the website ? As i have my interview on the 8th, it went well. 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 ?
AN3094 on 2019-11-10 said:
On my end the status says”Issued”. For male applicants they sometime put the case through administrative processing. Nothing to worry about, it’ll be issued eventually. Just keep on checking the status regularly.
Ammar Ch on 2019-11-10 said:
Alright many thanks for prompt reply, btw your CO clearly stated that your visa is approved on the day of interview ?
AN3094 on 2019-11-10 said:
Yes.
Ammar Ch on 2019-11-11 said:
Hey, Many Congratulations. Did you get a phone call or was it through an update on the visa application status site ?
blank avatar Waka034 on 2019-11-11 said:
congratulations i have a question about marriage certificate do we still require translation of marriage certificate or nikkah nama because my lawyers said its in both english and urdu so no need to make translation i submitted my iv and other civil doc on 25 of sept 2019 still waiting
Ammar Ch on 2019-11-11 said:
Yeah Waka you do need a English version of Nikah Nama, get that attested too. My case got delayed cz of that, they asked me to submit the English version of Urdu Nikah Nama so i had to arrange that and uploaded on NVC.
AN3094 on 2019-11-11 said:
Ammar Ch: got a text from their tracking system. Waka034: Urdu nikaha nama+engish transltion+NADRA marriage certificate, take all three of them. And as ammar mentioned, get everything attested by foreign affairs.
AN3094 on 2019-11-11 said:
Waka034: expect a response aprox 4-5 weeks after documents submission.

*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.
