Background Check - FBI

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I called UCIS about 3 weeks ago and open a service request to inquire on my application for K-1 visa for my fiancee and I received a response that they are still doing my background check. I filled in November 2015. Does anyone know how long the FBI background check takes. Can it take longer than 7 months. Below is the actual response...

"We have placed your case on a processing hold because the required security checks remain pending. Until we receive the results of these security checks, we cannot move forward on your case. We require the results of security checks before we make a decision on any pending case.

We cannot predict when we will receive the results of these security checks. Please be assured that we will make every effort to make a decision in your case as soon as the security checks are complete"

We got caught up in those FBI background checks...common names. It took like a month after getting the service request response to when we finally got the NOA2. But yes, it can take a while for the background checks to be completed. From NOA1 to NOA2 it took us 215 days! Some unfortunately have to wait even longer than that....
