If there are any documents missing from your file or if the Consular Officer has further questions about your case, the officer will put your case on hold under Section 221(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). The consular officer will give you a list of documents and/or information required to continue with your case. If you do not return the requested information within one year from the date of the interview, we will assume that your case has been abandoned and it will be terminated. 

If you are refused under another section of the INA, you will be given both a verbal and written explanation of the reason for refusal. In some cases, depending on the type of refusal and your visa category, you may be eligible for a waiver from the Department of Homeland Security. In other cases, you will not be eligible to apply for a waiver. If a waiver is available, the Consular Officer will give you the necessary instructions on how to do so. Please be aware that the final decision in all waiver applications is made by the Department of Homeland Security’s Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services.  For further information, please refer to the USCIS Application for Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility.

If the Consular Officer has suggested that you undergo a DNA test with the petitioner or any other member of your family, the Officer will give you a DNA information sheet which will give you information on how to perform the test.  Please visit the AABB website for a complete list of accredited DNA laboratories in the U.S. You have one year to comply with this request for DNA.  If you do not perform the DNA test within one year, your case will be considered abandoned and will be closed.
