Case Status

At the end of your immigrant visa interview, the consular officer will inform you whether your visa application is approved or denied.

Some visa applications require further administrative processing, which takes additional time after the visa applicant’s interview by a consular officer. Applicants are advised of this requirement when they apply. Most administrative processing is resolved within 60 days of the visa interview. When administrative processing is required, the timing will vary based on the individual circumstances of each case.  You can check the status of your visa application on ceac.state.gov.

If you have been requested to send additional documents to the Embassy, you may do so via DHL at aisusvisa-info.com, or by attending Embassy walk-in hours every Thursday from 1-3 pm. Please ensure that you bring photo ID, along with your yellow 221(g) refusal sheet and ALL requested documents with you to the Embassy. Failure to bring photo ID, the yellow refusal sheet, or any of the documents marked on it as missing will result in the applicant being denied entry to the Embassy during walk-in hours.

If your visa has been denied, you may find useful information on Ineligibilities and Waivers on usvisas.state.gov.
