Hey Karthik

I got the administrative processing white paper on March 27th (last Tuesday). The lady told me the "Visa was approved" but Admin Processing was needed. She said to expect 2-4 weeks. But the letter itself says it could be months. I am OK with the accommodation as I have relatives here but its already been a week away from work and not sure how long before it causes friction at work.

Karthik,

Don't worry I have been through this just last month. It took exact 2 weeks and 1 day for consulate to complete the process. Did the Visa officer told you the reason ? and also told you how much time will be needed ? the VO told me at the time of first interview that it will take 2-3 weeks. They usually complete the process in the time they mention. Do you work in non-IT field ? Advanced degree from the US ?

Vaibh, thanks for the encouraging words. The VO told me that it would take 2-4 weeks. 2 weeks will be up tomorrow, I will start waiting anxiously from then on.

Waiting Ottawa: The paper that she gave me (and Karthik too I believe) was just an Informative White sheet printout with information on Administrative processing and a checklist of additional documents (none of which were checked as nothing else was needed.) Also, they returned our passports and said they will ask for them again when the visa is ready. Since they kept your passport, I think you are in a better position than us. According to the notice posted at the Calgary embassy, they keep your passport for about 7-10 days when they are ready to put the visa in it. The good thing is that, at least for you, the wait should be much shorter than Administrative Processing. They will probably keep my passport for additional 7-10 days after I get the request email.

On a more philosophical note: even though I knew there was a chance I might get stuck in Admin Processing, it is more frustrating than I anticipated. Not sure how someone goes through months of wait time.

Hey guys (karthik555), just a quick question: is anyone a full-time employee? I've heard a lot about EC, EVC & EVVC applicants getting administrative processing slips... Does anyone here who got the delay in any of those categories?

I had adminitrative processing on my H1B vsia (I am a postdoc) on Dec. 20, 2011. It took them about 3 weeks to clear the case. I did not stay in Calgary but went home for holidays instead.
