    When case status will change to issued ?

    F4 - brothers and sisters of US citizens

    Interview - Islamabad Embassy, Pakistan
    Interview - 17 September 2013.

    My Mother and I was interviewed at Islamabad embassy on 17 september 2013,
    we both were approved.
    Consular officer told us that you both are approved and you will get your visas within 7-10 days.

    Today is 20 September , 2 business days have passed , today is 3rd day.

    Still case status on ceac.state.gov website is "Ready"

    my question is that , how much time it takes to change status from ready to ISSUED?

    There is no way to know. Your case *could* get stuck in something called administrative processing or AP. If that happens you should get a letter stating 221(g) AP.

    Or they could issue it tomorrow. There is no way to know for sure.

    Congrats on the approval....I hope the wait from here isn't very long. AP is not a fun wait.
    My husband EWI from Mexico in 1991, and we married in 2011 and filed the I-130. By February 2012, he had his visa appointment in Juarez, and we were one of the first Lockbox filers in July 2012. It took us less than a month for approval! No lawyer used, but only because the one we initially retained turned out to be horrible. Don't make our same mistake!! Use an experienced, recommended attorney!

    Case Status Administrative Processing

    Today on 21 September , Saturday case status has changed from READY to ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESSING.

    I thought embassy remains close on Saturdays and Sundays.


    so at least file is moving.

    I hope AP would end soon.

    The AP you experience is normal AP. It just means that they are checking everything before they issue to visa. I am glad it didn't get stuck in the LONG AP.

    I didn't want to type this earlier, but it seems like people from Pakistan go through AP more often than people from other countries.

    But CONGRATS!!!
