Immigrant visa applicants may wish to view their immigrant visa application status. The applicant or relative will need to enter the case number (e.g.: HAV2013123456, 2013SA123). Once the visa appears as “Issued” the applicants may come to the U.S. Embassy to pick up their visa and passport following the instructions on their pass. Please be aware that some cases require extended administrative processing. This processing may last several months. If such is the case, the U.S. Embassy will contact the applicant or petitioner by telephone or e-mail as soon as this process has concluded and a determination has been made on the applicant’s case, or if the applicant needs to submit additional or updated documents.
