Frequently Asked Questions

What does the 'Expiring Soon' status mean in the CEAC visa status check?

The Expiring Soon status in the Consular Electronic Applications Center (CEAC) visa status check refers to a specific situation under Section 203(g) of the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act. This status indicates that the applicant has not applied for an immigrant visa within one year of being notified to do so. If the applicant fails to obtain an immigrant visa during this period and does not notify the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) about this, their application and any approved petition on their behalf will be canceled. However, the application can be reinstated and the petition can be revalidated if the applicant demonstrates within that one-year period that their failure to apply for the visa was due to circumstances beyond their control. This status serves as a warning to applicants to take immediate action to avoid cancellation of their application and any approved petition. It is crucial for applicants to keep track of their visa application status through the CEAC system to avoid missing such important notifications.
