Administrative Processing Status Check

(日本語)

What is Administrative Processing?
Some visa applications require further administrative processing, which takes additional time after the visa applicant's interview by a Consular Officer. Applicants are advised of this requirement when they apply. When administrative processing is required, the timing will vary based on individual circumstances of each case. Visa applicants are reminded to apply early for their visa, well in advance of the anticipated travel date.

How can I check my status?

  • If your visa interview was at the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo and at the time of the interview and you received a form stating that your application requires administrative processing, you may check your status using the chart below.

  • If your interview was in Fukuoka, Sapporo or Naha, please contact our call center.

  • If your visa interview was at the U.S. Consulate General in Osaka-Kobe, please click here.

    To use the website, you will need to select "Nonimmigrant Visa (NIV)" from the drop-down menu, select "Japan, Osaka" as the location, and then enter your "Confirmation Number," which you received when creating your DS-160. The Confirmation Number should be a 10-digit sequence beginning with "AA00."

Understanding the chart:

Pending:Your application is under administrative processing.
Completed (date):Administrative processing for your case has been completed. If your passport was kept at the Embassy, we will return it via the LetterPack 500 envelope; if not, please send your passport to the Embassy within 30 days of the completion date.

If your case does not require further administrative processing as described above, you may check your visa application status online on the State Department's website by entering your interview location and DS-160 barcode number.
