Processing Times - London

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So two weeks ago the Processing Times on the website (http://www.usembassy.org.uk/dhs/uscis/i130filing.html) jumped up to 7 January, but last week (2 April) it didn't move.....stayed on 7 January (do they have that many I-130s that were filed on 7 January? Likely, given the holidays....)

This week the dates haven't moved...no update since 2 April.....!!!!

As a 25 February filer, we are on pins and needles and don't see the date moving. Anyone know what is going on? As we all agree, the waiting is the worst part!

Sometime in the summer months it can be stuck for several weeks. Karen who runs that section (if she is still there) only has a small staff and if they are not all there things slow down.

(When I was still working in the UK I had a lot of contact with the consular and legal sections of the Embassy through my job.)

They may not be updated on a regular basis. I wouldn't worry a whole lot...when I got notice that the application for the I-129F was approved the date was still stuck several weeks behind what it should have been.
