Q: Why my application is undergoing admnistrative processing?

Here are what I have got from the site with my visa checking:

 Your visa case is currently undergoing necessary administrative processing. This processing can take several weeks. Please follow any instructions provided by the Consular Officer at the time of your interview. If further information is needed, you will be contacted. If your visa application is approved, it will be processed and mailed/available within two business days.Why my visa is undergoing admnistrative processing while I was being told that I am passed when I finished the interview.

So on your other topic, when you said you had "passed", what did you mean? Did you mean you had passed the interview for the USA visa and did you mean you had the visa in your passport?

 

Were you given any instructions at the interview? If yes, did you actually listen and understand them?

Vicky, do you really think any of us have any idea why your visa is undergoing administrative processing? What were the exact words that the visa officer used when he said that you would get your visa? Did he/she say you passed or that you were being passed? The fact they said "if your visa is approved" suggests you have not passed yet.

I think I see what happened.

 

You submitted your application, and assumed that you had "passed"  because they "accepted" the fee.

 

Goodness me, yesterday you were about to set yourself up as a US visa agent because of your extensive knowledge on the subject.

 

So yeah, erm, they take the fee then process your application. If they refuse your application, they keep the fee.

yeah what do you mean by "passed"? is it a student visa that you did a test for?

you either have a right to a visa or you don't. there usually isn't any "test". just a lengthy administrative process.

you sound like a typical "clever social scammer" who believes she's tricked or bribed her way into the company of good people she can exploit.

"I passed."
"They fell for it."
"I'm through the hurdle."
"The vault door is open."

Which kind of visa, anyway? Holiday? Marriage? Au pair? Business? Study?

I guess yesterday you said, "I passed away in America".

Alas! They didn't let you celebrate for a day.

Don't worry about the face you ll loose to your friends whom you have bullied since yesterday. Things will take time and you will learn more about legalities of travelling abroad.

Yeesh, girl.

 

You need to do your research and LISTEN.

 

You most likely passed the interview and paid the fee. From there your papers, bank account, support while in the U.S. and ANSWERS you gave in the interview, will be evaluated.

 

You could still be rejected if you provided any false information or your information does not meet the requirements of the type of visa you are applying for.

 

In short, you do not have your visa yet or have been approved to visit the U.S.

 

At least, not yet.

Dear strawberry: i work in the visa processing department of the US consulate in shanghai and due to your rather poor attitude it has been decided that you will not be granted a visa and any further attempt at communication with said consulate will result in military action against you and your house.

Two things....

 

Firstly, your visa, and in fact, any visa, is only as good as when you're actually in the country it's for, and for as long as you don't piss off the wrong people! When it all comes down to it, there are a LOT more people who have the legal right to revoke your visa at any time... even if you have it in your passport, it can still be rejected. Hell, even the guys and girls at the Immigration section of the airport you fly into can say no!

 

From the answers you gave in the previous post, I'd suggest that you fall into the 'EXTREMELY HIGH RISK' category of Chinese tourists going to the USA. (and then disappearing as an illegal immigrant) - minimal financial support, only (yes, only) 1 year at your current job - which you can't even effectively talk about what your company does - single, young, female. No home or car or other mortgage/bank repayments requiring you to be here. No other significant reason to return. No real idea of what you're going to do when you get there, let alone how you'll get there, or where you'll stay. Let's face it, the only red flag you haven't sent up is the terrorist bomber type... (although, given your posts on here, including this thread, perhaps that one did get flagged, and you forgot to mention it).

 

 

Second point - US visa officials scour eCC all the time just looking for those who start gloating, so then they can bring them down a notch... Laughing out loud

'Embassy isn't required, and will not tell the reasons for approval or denial of visa to applicant.'

 

You can check validity of above statement by asking officer, who'll return your passport one simple Q: 'Why?'

 

Officer will reply with the above statement. That statement isn't Beijing's USA Embassy speciality. You will get the same answer in any Embassy anywhere around the world.

 

Most likely officer, who return passports with or no visa is behind bullet proof and noise reduction window. One can talk to the officer only by intercom. If the officer presses the intercom button.

Don't come back to the Board and say that's not true, unless you have tape with officer's voice explaining to you, that you can't get tourist visa to USA, because your butt is too big or similar.

 

Would you mind, stop posting ridiculous, semi-retarded, lying Q and statements to the Board, please? Posters here know you are lying! 

 

If I accept your statement that US Embassy officer told you: 'You passed.....' is true, he was most likely saying: 'I passed one' to his fellow colleague, as an apology for the bad, smelly air. 

In English, it doesn't mean, that you will get visa for USA, but officer farted, in simpler words ''he let the stinky, manure smelling air out of his arse -----> 'bo-wel-move-ments''.

 

Can we have a break now, please? Is there nothing else to do in Shanghai, but asking Q on this Board?

"Passed" is a codeword meaning your application would be put in the trash can as soon as you left the room. "Administrative processing" means the contents of this trash can was then put through a document shredder

don't forget to start a Question if your visa application is denied.

you start a story - it becomes your duty to finish it.
now that you've gloated, we have become interested in any misfortune that may befall you. don't worry about the moral of the story: we'll oblige with that aspect.

It'll most likely be denied. Everything Shining_Brow says is 100% correct.

 

If it isn't denied, I'd be surprised. I honestly hope it isn't denied so you can run away from everything that makes you unhappy.

 I think she won't get it. Look at how she behaves on here. If she behaved like that in the States someone would give her a good beating or at the very least a good tongue lashing. It sounds like she lied on her application and they caught it .

Apologies in advance if you stare at this the rest of the day...

Adopted Alaskan Malamutes, Brown Sugar and Rice Candy, are either having species confusion or just want to give their little buddy some support.

A:I think the first "not smart" thing you did was to think of everyone as a subordinate. They are in fact your team members. You are also a team member and your role is to supervise, not flex your muscles. It drives you nuts when your boss does this and then you do exactly the same thing. Think about it. Adapt, change, bend the rules and be more efficient. -- iWolf
