Administrative Processing

Administrative Processing is the label used by the State Department to describe the situation when a case has had its interview, but visa issuance is delayed. It could be held up due to the applicant, forgetting to bring all required documents to the interview, a suspicious consular officer asking for more evidences ( 221(g) denials), a problem in the consulates visa printing process (like the NVC Computer Failure of June 2015: No Visas for 14 days), the consulate performing further investigations to verify details or search for fraud, or to request a Security Advisory Opinion that queries databases of various government law enforcement and intelligence agencies.
