What Happens After The Interview
After the interview, you will either be told that you have been approved or you will be handed a piece of paper that says “221g”.
The interviewer will return any original documents to you and keep your passport for both scenarios. If you are approved on the spot, expect your K1 visa in your passport within 1-2 weeks in the mail. It will be delivered by courier and require a signature.
If you have been placed on administrative processing, your case is under review and you should expect a letter asking for further evidence or documents. Respond quickly to any requests and USCIS contact customer service once a month for updates until your K1 visa is approved.
In some extreme cases (such as in Nigeria or India) you may be in administrative process for over 6 months and this is not unusual for cases that are review in some high fraud countries. There isn’t much that can be done except to wait. Even contacting congress by the US citizen will not get your case processed any sooner.
