Case Status

At the end of your immigrant visa interview, the consular officer will inform you whether your visa application is approved or denied.  You can learn more about Application Pending Further Action on the U.S. Visa Information Service.

Some visa applications require further administrative processing, which takes additional time after the visa applicant’s interview with the consular officer.  Applicants are advised of this requirement when they apply.   When administrative processing is required, the timing will vary based on the individual circumstances of each case.  You can check the status of your visa application on CEAC website.

If your visa has been denied, you may find useful information on Ineligibilities and Waivers on the U.S. Department of State website.
