Sharing an email from Ahmed about F1 Visa approval, followed by shocking news of Administrative processing.
I had my F1 Visa interview on First Week of August 2011.
Only general questions were asked during the interview, and at the end of the interview the Visa Interviewer said your visa is approved and you will receive it in a week.
It’s more than two weeks now and still I did not receive my passport. So i contacted the U.S Embassy yesterday and they said that
Unfortunately your Visa is under Administrative Processing and may take couple of weeks to process. We will contact you as soon as your Visa is processed.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
I was shocked to hear this. Because at the time of interview I was not given any 221(g) nor the VI mentioned anything about administrative processing.
My I-20 expires on 27th August 2011. I am worried that whether I will receive my passport on time or not.
Am I the only one with such case ? And whether people with such cases got their visa ?
