Consulate Review: Egypt
Review Topic: General Review
Event Description
Review Date : August 12, 2023
Embassy Review : Interview on July 12, 2023. Consular officer asked him about my previous marriages and he had to give details about why I had several divorces. The main thing the officer wanted to know was about my marriages and proof that we had an actual valid relationship. Luckily I had been to Egypt 3 times and had many many pictures with him and family. Officer asked for pictures, nothing else. Asked a few more questions. Interveiw didn't last long, maybe 20 minutes. Received verbal approval and approval letter. My husband felt that it was a positive experience and we were happy and excited. Several days later, we checked on CEAC 'check visa status' because he was told he would be getting his visa issued within 3 business days, and it said REFUSED. We were in a panic wondering what happened. Found out through researching forums that he was placed on administrative processing. In the next several days, we sent numerous emails to the embassy inquiring about what happened and what we needed to do and all were ignored. I contacted my state senator on July 19, the morning we checked and saw our status as REFUSED. On July 28th, when the senator emailed the embassy, the very next day the embassy started processing everything. By August 3rd he was issued his visa. Moral of the story is contact your state senators if you have done everything that was asked of you and they are still beating around the bush. If you have a good senator who is doing the right thing they will help speed up your case processing.

*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.
