thank you !! what do yo mean by post interview chekcs ?
I don’t know exactly but there are still clearly checks that happen after. It’s rare but we have heard of cases where people have been told they are approved in interview but then refused a visa. We’ve also heard of people who have been contacted after and told to follow up with another document. This is why they tell you never to do anything irrevocable until you actually have the visa in hand.

thank you Brit!!I got information from someone who got his interview in Paris and he told me it can last between 2 and 10 days. AP can refer to the time taken by the embassy for preparing the packet and also stamping the passport with a visa stamp.
Yes, these procedures normally only take a couple of days.

Post interview checks involve additional background checks using the fingerprints and thumbprints captured at the time of the interview. The pre interview background check is a name and biographic check only.
Sometimes other things too re what is submitted at interview, I know of a case or two where follow-up was done on the education documents submitted.
 
if someone else is facing the same problem, I found what does AP means on the website of US embassy in japan :

This status (AP) includes:
  • The visa issuance process (visa has been approved but not yet printed)
  • Pending for additional documents/information
  • * Administrative Processing (See below for details
* Additional Administrative Processing:

If applicants are advised at the time of their interviews that their cases require additional administrative processing, they may check the status of their visa application on the Embassy website here
 
Hi,

I have a little concern : I am living in the US but I am going through the CP process so doing interview in my home country (France). When I requested my french PCC I put my parents' address to avoid any delay so I received it (at my parents' address) but (of course) it’s my parents' address on it (I just saw it as I arrived in France today, other information being correct: name, DoB, etc.), does it matter?

Thanks

The annotation means you have a class B none infectious respiratory (TB?) medical condition which requires further check up in a US Public Health System.

The purpose of that annotation is to alert the IO that processes you at your POE to let you know you need to book an appointment within a short period of time following your admission, at your nearest public health system for further checks to truly rule out the condition is indeed none infectious.

Okay. It still means you have a class B medical condition which didn’t render you inadmissible to the US BUT requires additional check ups to be conducted by the US Public Health System. Go through the following link for 9 FAM 302.2 (U) INELIGIBILITY BASED ON HEALTH AND MEDICAL GROUNDS - INA 212(A)(1) to read more about medical exams and conditions:
https://fam.state.gov/fam/09FAM/09FAM030202.html

If the panel physician had determined the condition to be a Class A medical condition, you would have been found ineligible for admission on medical grounds.

Thank you mom, I'm more worried about my health condition rather than the admission :(

That’s why they’ve recommended check up in the US. You’ll be provided with more information about the medical condition then. Getting worried over something you don’t know or have no control over isn’t isn’t going to change the condition, right?
