US Dubai Consulate FAQ

HOME > AFTER MY INTERVIEW > Case approved but passport returned without visa

Occasionally applicants’ cases that have been approved at the time of interview are returned without a US visa in the passport. This is the result of additional administrative processing that is occasionally required after the initial approval for the visa. Applicants whose passports are returned without a visa should follow the process listed on the sheet attached with their passport. Applicants do not need to follow up with the Consulate regarding the status of the administrative processing on their case. A new email will be sent to the applicant once the new administrative processing has been completed.
