unfortunately u are wrong dear.

actually administrative process took less time. if they found anything wrong with ur case then they review the case.normally processing took 4months. and review took few months extra time.

i have posted a link in the dhaka embassy thread posted by gwita. there is a brief discussion on it. please go through.

inshaallah u ll get out of this hell soon
best of luck.

Well if you read Mary's post it says processing is more in depth than the review.

I really dont care if its a AP or AR as long as its done in timely manner.

additional processing which refers to the name check procedure done by the Consulate with the NCIC criminal database at FBI.This procedure screens visa applicants by name to see if there is a "hit" with the criminal database: that is, a person in the criminal database has the same or very similar name to the visa applicant.

Many visa applicants with common names with those in the database get a "false hit": the refers to when a visa applicant's name matches a name in the datebase but is NOT actually that same person in the database, just a person with a common or very similar name. This places the case into what is called "Administrative Review". Under current rules, the Consulate is required in this circumstance to receive full clearance from FBI (via the NVC) before Consulate can issue the visa. It may require a full fingerprint check and customized investigation. Full clearance from FBI (via the NVC) in most cases can take 4 to 6 weeks, but in some cases much longer and even months.

best wishes

"additional processing" can refer to a lot of other things as well.

They'll get back to you soon. But this "soon" can not be defined. You have to be patient and just enjoy the life as it was before the AP/AR

Hello.would u please tell what are the common names that are required "name checking"..and may take a long time?Does MOHAMMAD and AHMED are included in common names?

All names, common or not, require " "name checking" ".

The problem with common names is that there is likely someone with a similar name on one of the 'bad guy' watch lists, in which case the government has to determine whether or not the visa applicant is the bad guy.

Well I know some1 where the Embassy never contacted them even though their case was completed.They found about their case's completion by calling DOS.Thats a very rare case but these things do happen.
