Appeared for my interview - 21 September 2017
After successful interview consulate took my passport and informed me that my C1/D visa is approved but on the same day I received a mail from [email protected] asking for information such as Social media names, previous passport numbers, countries I have traveled in last 15 years etc.
I forwarded them with all the information.

Received my passport - 23rd September 2017
along with a 221g slip stating I will be contacted via email for some information.

Till now my visa status is showing Administrative process. Has anybody faced this issue. Any idea how much time will this process take.

my OFC was on 14.08.2013. 10am. i went there by 9am. no Que nothing. directly went inside. he took my fingerprints n photo. stamped DS-160. i'm out by 09.03am.

interview was yesterday. appointment time 8am. i went there by 6.50am, there was a bid Q for 7.30 appointment as well as for 8'o clock. they let us in by 7.30. after all checks they verify our finger prints once again. after that i waited till 10am for my turn. the consular was very cool. he checked my passport, my company letter for visa. few formal questions about my work. he doesnt even bother to check my CDC. when i gave it to him he said "its OK". it was just 5 mins. he checked something in d computer n said visa approved.

the best part is "i got my visa in hand in my hometown by today morning 9am. that was very fast.
