I-130 application for my wife's immigration application has been
approved by USCIS. But now it is now in the "administrative processing"
in the U.S. Consular of her home country. Do you know what is the
"administrative processing"? and how long it may take? Thank
Some visa applications require further
administrative processing, which takes additional time after the visa
applicant’s interview by a Consular Officer. Applicants are
this requirement when they apply. Most administrative processing is
resolved within 60 days of the visa interview.
administrative processing is required, the timing will vary based on
individual circumstances of each case. Visa applicants are reminded to
apply early for their visa, well in advance of the anticipated travel
date. Before making inquiries about status of administrative
processing, applicants or their representatives will need to wait at
least 60 days from the date of interview.
