I think my fiance was approved for a US tourist visa

In Chile, when the old, crazy, and infirm are institutionalized and set out in a wheelchair on the patio to drool all over each other they are referred to as “locos de patio”. This is where we keep our locos de patio on the All Chile Forum.

I think my fiance was approved for a US tourist visa

Title pretty much says it all. I think, think, think he was approved for his tourist visa, after being put in "administrative processing," according to this website: https://ceac.state.gov/CEACStatTracker/Status.aspx
....

but.... that's not the same website that the US consulate told my fiance to check up on. My fiance interviewed on April 30th. The Santiago embassy website only updates the cases once a month. They just updated today... to April 29th. So we'd have to wait another month for the website to update.

Anyhoo, I'm going to make my fiance call them tomorrow to confirm, but I just wanted to celebrate and get my hopes up a bit. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. Hawaii. :)

Congrats, I hope!
So is it a normal tourist visa? or one of those fiance visas?

No, just a tourist visa. No desire to immigrate back there yet (and he's still a student, so gotta wait for that).

Family vacation in Hawaii is in August, but I'm hoping he gets it for more than just this year... it'd be really nice to spend Christmas up there, or even the Chilean winter visiting family in Wisconsin summer in the future. :)

We still have to actually get the passport back from the embassy, so we'll see how long his visa is good for then.

That status tracker site is the one to check. If it says visa issued then the visa has been issued.
