Case Status Check
 

If your nonimmigrant visa application requires administrative processing, you should check your case status frequently. As requested on the website, enter your DS-160 barcode ID number and the interview location (Dhaka). The barcode ID number is located on the upper right-hand side on your DS-160 confirmation page that the officer returned to you at the interview. Should your case status show Administrative Processing, there is nothing you need to do. If we need any further information from you, we will contact you.
