Check the status of your administrative processing

Check the status of your case at this Department of State website.  You will need your case number to check your status (3 Letters + a 10 Digit Number).

Some visa applications require further administrative processing, which takes additional time after the visa applicant’s interview by a Consular Officer.  Applicants are advised of this requirement at the conclusion of the interview.  When administrative processing is required, the timing will vary based on individual circumstances of each case.  The administrative processing occurs in Washington, DC and can not be expedited or waived.  Most administrative processing is resolved within five months of the visa interview.  Visa applicants are reminded not to make any non-refundable travel plans until they receive their visas.

If your administrative processing is still pending six months after your interview, please contact our office at: and include your case number in the subject line.
