Immigration Issues/L1-b addtional administrative processing
QUESTION: hi ,
I attended L1-b interview yesterday. I got a white form on which the VO marked "your appliaction needs addtional administrative processing before the final decision can be made"
she has returned my passport and kept my petition with her
what is the further step.How much time will it take further .or its a mere matter of rejection
ANSWER: Dear Anvesh:
To my understanding the officer must have given a notice/letter suggesting additional administrative review/processing - if not, then I would assume some investigation or review in the case.
It might take more or less 90 - 120 days depending on category of review/investigation.
You may also inquire with the consulate w/in - say - 30 days via phone, in-person, or email.

QUESTION: What sort of investigation is that the do .And is it mandatory period of 90 to 120 days .IS there no probability of getting soon or like they returned my passport ,it will take more time
It would be hard for me to say anything about the nature of investigation, however if the officer gave you any letter/notice it must contain information about administrative review and/or processing.
Usually it takes about 90 - 120 days of processing time; again, depending on the nature of investigation time period may be more or less.
I would suggest you inquire at the consulate or seek professional help to do so. Your question is case specific for it to be answered meaningfully on a forum.
