Before you return to the Embassy
Applicants should not submit their passports or travel to the Embassy until notified through this website, or by email from the Consular section. Be advised the Status Check provided by the CEAC website is based on an automated computer script, and may not consider all information relevant to your case.
We are pleased to inform you that the administrative processing for your case is completed. Your case number will also be announced on our website within the week.
Applicants may send us their passports and required documents via the Turkish postal service (PTT).
Applicants whose status is marked “Processing Completed” are encouraged to send their documents to the Embassy at least two weeks prior to their processing expiration date. Applicants with “Processing Pending” or other statuses should not send their passports and should not come to the Embassy.
After your documents are received, a consular officer will review your case to ensure each applicant meets eligibility and admissibility criteria. If everything is in order, your visa packet will be prepared and sent to the PTT office which you chose. If additional work is needed for your case, your passport(s) will be returned to the PTT office with an explanation. In most cases, you will receive a decision five work days after your submission.
Your visa case has been refused under Section 221(g) of the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act.
Further administrative processing of your application is required before a decision can be made regarding your eligibility for a visa. Administrative processing, on average takes four months, but we are unable to estimate the amount of time it will take for any particular applicant.
As soon as this processing is completed, the Embassy will send you an email providing further instructions.
Note: If the status of the principal applicant is “pending”, derivatives must need to wait for the principal applicant.
