PIMS not updated - Administrative processing


Recommended Posts



I was told by visa officer that my visa was approved. He said i should get my passport by Wed or Thursday. I asked if my PIMS is not updated, he said we are waiting on it. It will take 2 business days to update their database.


Now i checked the status here: https://ceac.state.gov/ceacstattracker/status.aspx , it says administrative processing. Is it common to see administrative processing if my PIMS is not updated? or PIMS is not the issue but something else?


Pleas share your experience

i attended on 19th and my visa was also approved with PIMS.. VO said i will get it on monday or tuesday. it was admin processing till today and got changed to issued today.

How much time after the status changed to issued did you get the passport? My interview was on 24th, status changed to issued on 26th but haven't received any email about passport pickup.
