At the end of your immigrant visa interview, the consular officer will inform you whether your visa application is approved or denied. If you are approved, proceed to Step 5 below.
If you are denied, follow the instructions in the letter that was given to you during the interview.
Administrative processing: Some visa applications require further administrative processing, which takes additional time after the visa applicant’s interview by a consular officer. If it applies to you, we will advise you of this requirement at the time of interview. While most administrative processing is resolved within 60 days of the visa interview, the timing will vary based on the individual circumstances of each case. As in all cases, please do not make travel plans until you receive your approved visa.
Additional information is also available on Ineligibilities and Waivers.
