  • Admin issues for Immigration visa

    I am from Pakistan. My case is still under admin processing, it is more than 17 months now.
    Any body can tell me how this one can be solved. When ever I contacted Visa Officer here the standard response is that the case is under admin processing and cannot give any tentative time.

    Need advise in his regards.

        Still my documents are with embassy inclduing my passport. At the time of interview they told me to contact them after 45 days and the latest answer is that still it is under admin processing. I was called for visa interview during January 2007. Provided all the required documents. Now my two children crossed the age limi of 21 years.

          Administrative review can take a long time. Anywhere from a few months to 10 years. So no one can really give you a definitive answer there, I fear.

          Can you tell us more on your story? WWhat kind of visa are you going for? More about your children?

          And welcome to ILW.

            Thanks jerm Cool,

            My visa is an immigration visa. My visa interview was taken along with my wife & Childrenn some time in January, 2007. At that time my children where under 21. Visa officer asked several questions with my family that went well. Ask for passports that we gave and still all passports are with embassy.Interview went pretty well. He said to contact after 45-60 days if I donot receive any response. Now my case is more than 17 months old. Still it is under admin processing . Just received this message yesterday from Visa officer.

            Long dealy and waiting time must have a justification if it is an admin fault better rectify it instead of making it further long.

              It sounds like you've probably gotten stuck in name check, and there's a number of reasons, as documented here

              The fact that your children have now turned 21 could be an issue, though that depends on exactly what immigrant visa you're applying for.

                  oytte:

                  Are you being sponsored by a US Citizen for your immigration?

                  If so, I would recommend he write to their local congresspeople and have them do an inquiry.

                  They will probably reply with "There's nothing we can do", but I found that things actually started moving again despite that line.

                    Thanks Thoughful,

                    My Visa is F-4 Class sponsor by my brother. I amoutside usa but had visited usa sev eral times for a few weeks.
                    I am from Pakistan.

                    Actually this admin processing is really taking a long time so lon that a man must get frustration for unknown reason. I agree that diferent level of secuirty checkes must be involved but not so long

                      Yes, it is insane that the checks can take so long, and there really isn't much that can be done about them. To be honest, as sad as it is, you're actually at the low end of the scale as far as time taken goes.

                      Perhaps your brother could try contacting his local senator/congressperson. There's no guarantee that they'll be able to help, but it's worth a shot.

                      Good luck!

                            A man is landing in a legal way canot be a jihadi. Your thinking must be very funny.
