JUST CURIOUS...

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I posted this question in another forum, but never got a response, so figured I would try again :)

Just wondering if anyone knows how long the Visa processing issue from 2014 took to resolve? (not that I'm trying to compare the issue from last year to the issue happening presently...just curious as to how long this "could possibly" take to fix based on how long it took last time). I know no matter what, all we can do is wait...........just trying to ease my mind a bit :)

Q: How long before you restore full system functionality?

  • Public and private sector experts are making progress in correcting the visa problem, and we are striving to have the system online sometime next week.
