I'm applying for the B1/B2 visa and went through the interview, sent in additional documents, and after a few weeks got a message saying "The U.S. Consulate in Toronto requests that you submit your passport for visa issuance." on Nov 2. So I assumed my application was approved and sent in my passport on Nov 7.
It didn't occur to me that I needed to check the CEAC website instead of the consulate website for status update until today (yeah I know...), so I did and it said my status is still "Administrative Processing" and was last updated on Nov 6.
I didn't check the website between Nov 2 to Nov 6 so I'm not sure what happened in between, but is it possible to go from approved back to processing? Has anyone gone through something similar?
I have travel plans that require my passport in December, so I sent them an email in the hope of getting my passport back. Does anyone have any experience with that and know how long it could take?
