I have been granted 10-year B1/B2 visas twice previously. The second one expired in June 2017. On November 27, 2017, I applied for a new visa along with minor daughter’s visa application.
After a long interview, the visa officer informed us that our visa was refused, but technically our visa applications are pending. Surprisingly she kept our passports and told me to wait for an outcome within 2 days. Meanwhile, she gave me my payment slip and a 221(g) white slip without writing anything on it. She just marked the embassy’s email address for any additional contact.
Now tracking our visa applications online, I see they are in Administrative Processing (AP). After 2 weeks I emailed the embassy and they informed me that my case is still in pending AP. Once it's complete, they will inform me.
Does anyone have the same story? What is the reason for all that? Finally after AP did you get the visa or was it refused? Please share your experience or guide me why it’s happened to me.
