Hi, I gave my h1b visa interview yesterday and officer said it’s approved. Today I am checking visa status on ceac website and it says ‘Administrative processing’
Has anyone faced this when officer said it’s approved? How long would it take to get the passport back?

    Administrative processing is normal right after interview. Keep checking the ceac website for updates.

    1 week, max 2 weeks. If the officer says approved, it’s approved. There could be a thousand things causing the delay - visa printing machine not working, the people who are in charge of printing are out on holiday, they have some issues with their network. Anything

    Not necessarily 1-2 weeks. Have personal experience that it’s been 2+months after VO said approved and still waiting.
