Hey everyone.

The status on my status checker, originally said, refused after interview where I was recommended waiver. then changed to administrative processing a couple weeks ago, it’s now changed to refused again. Does that mean the whole visa has been refused even though the waiver was recommended ? I haven’t heard anything from them to say the review is complete or anything yet. Could it still be under review ?

Mine was refused in 2019 and the status never changed to administrative processing. I received a letter in the post advising me of the refusal.

The tracker is often misleading to be honest, given they kept your passport too, it's even harder for us to speculate what it means.

Of course, a recommendation for a waiver is not tantamount to receiving one, so it's completely possible that DHS have declined to issue you one. Have you emailed the visa unit?

im just hoping that it means the review is complete and I’m about to hear. I haven’t emailed them yet. Turns out I had the passport this whole time. Not sure quite how I managed it but had it in my head they kept the passport for some reason.

Had my interview this morning in the London embassy. They have referred me for a waiver and gave a 2-3 weeks timeframe for a decision. For reference, I applied in Belfast in 2019 and my waiver was rejected. Will come back once I hear anything along with how long the decision took.

After a bit of advice.

Attended interview for 2nd Visa - referred for Waiver on 17th Feb 2022. (1st Visa was multiple entry 5 years which ran out in Feb)
Emailed on 9th March to send Passport for Visa Issuance
Handed into DX on 11th March
Received at Embassy on 16th March

And nothing since, the website states 3-7 days for visa issue but mine has exceeded this. I've checked the status from DS-160 and still shows refused and the last action on 23 Feb.

Just wondering how long other people have been waiting recently when they have submitted their passports?

TIA

Still awaiting my passport back from the Embassy. I have emailed twice but I get a standard response without actually answering my questions.

The https://ais.usvisa-info.com/en-gb/niv site says to "send documents" which I did on 11th March following my email asking me to submit my passport for visa assurance on 9th March.

Its been a total of a month without my passport, the emails from the webform team say my case is under review, but surely if asking for my passport it would appear my case has been reviewed. I get a feeling its "lost" in the process somewhere and without the ability to speak to someone, I keep getting this response.Embassy records show that your application remains under review at this time. Please note, no expedite service is available and there is no mechanism for routine status updates while a review is underway. You can expect to be notified as soon as the review is complete. No additional information or documentation is requested or required from you at this time.

As there is no set period of time that a review may take, we cannot guarantee an outcome by any set date. This is one reason why we advise all applicants against booking tickets or making final travel plans unless they have received their passport containing a valid U.S. visa appropriate for their purpose of travel.


Any advice anyone?
