IMBRA Waiver Approval Timeline

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me how long it took them to have their IMBRA waiver/NOA2 approved? Did you receive

an IMBRA approval before you got the NOA2, or just received NOA2 approval?

I am just not sure if it takes longer, I had provided all the necessary documents as suggested, i.e. prove that

the first K1 VISA within the last two years did not work out.

Also, anyone with a recent approval or approvals if your NOA1 was from the September/October 2007 timeframe.

THANKS

10/22/07 NOA1 received

10/25/07 Last time case was "touched"

There is no such thing as an IMBRA approval notice.... A petition is adjudicated as a whole and not in pieces...

There are multiple and a varied number of steps in the petition adjudication process but only one "approval" notice. We really don't know if the waiver letter adds a step like a supervisor approval or not but if so, like all the other steps, it would be internal.

I 'm in the same boat with you. I have submitted everything they needed and they told me I should be expecting response within 60 days but 60 days has passed now. Let me know how things go for you.
