  • B1 Visa Approved but Admin Prcoessing

    Hello,

    I gave my US B1 Visa interview on 30th oct 2019 at the mumbai consulate , it went well and VO told me at the end that the visa is approved and u will receive notification within 4-6 days to collect your passport.

    now , it’s been like 14 days and no update yet. Online shows administrative processing though I have not been given any slips at the End.

    Online it says:
    case creation - 29th oct 2019
    case update - 30th oct 2019


    can some please advise if this is normal wait time after the visa being approved or any of you are facing the same issue as mine ?

    any help or advise would be appreciated . Thanks

    Its quite possible, probably they do not need anything from your side & just doing some background check for your profile.

    You really do not have any option but to wait for another 15-16 days & then file a service request with local embassy.

      Any clue why case has been updated since 30th Oct ? Coz if they are working on it and if they need anything they should have contacted me till now right ???

      Also, what’s this service request ? I have already mailed the service desk and below is the reply from them :

      Public Response: Dear Applicant:

      Thank you for writing to the U.S. Visa Service Desk.

      We understand that you would like to know your visa application status.

      In response to your question, our records indicate that, the visa application is under processing at the Embassy/Consulate. Some refused visa applications may require further administrative processing. When administrative processing is required, the consular officer will inform the applicant at the end of the interview. The duration of the administrative processing will vary based on the individual circumstances of each case. Except in cases of emergency travel (i.e. serious illnesses, injuries, or deaths in your immediate family), before making inquiries about status of administrative processing, applicants should wait at least 180 days from the date of interview or submission of supplemental documents, whichever is later.

      Please be assured that, once the processing is completed or if the Embassy needs further information, you will be contacted for the same.

      Alternatively, please follow the link: https://ceac.state.gov/CEAC/ to check the status of your case, by selecting “Check my Visa Application Status” under “Non-Immigrant".

      We hope this information is helpful to you.


      Sincerely,
      U.S. Visa Service Desk.

        They do not update the online site on regular basis.

        Read the highlighted text below.

        They might probably doesn't need anything from you.

          You really do'nt have any other options , sometimes it takes15-20 days or may be more. maximum wait for 45 days & then file a service request with local embassy.
