Share this page

If your case shows “Expiring Soon” or “Expired” in your CEAC status, please do the following steps:
  1. Check your DS-260 application. If it has reopened or incomplete, then review and resubmit for everyone in your case. It should always show “Complete” status.
  2. Send an Online Inquiry to the Embassy. Choose the subject “My status in CEAC says Expiring Soon”
Tell the Embassy you have completed your DS260, and that you request that they keep your case open and active.
