Vermont slowing down???

34 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Right before sending my application everyone was getting their NOAs really fast from Vermont. Now after I got my NOA1 it seems Vermont has come to a halt. Haven't seen much NOAs from them at all.

A bunch of couples got their approval in 2 weeks, and I'm going for 21 days already and nothing. Got touched 3 times in a little over a week and now it's been over a week without any touches.

Anyone else noticing this sudden stop at Vermont? :huh:

Hey now- 3 weeks is a whole lot better than 3 months... and 1 month and even 2 months for an approval is still good!! (compared to California, Texas, and Nebraska) Hang in there, you'll hear something soon. If you ask me you're pretty lucky to go through Vermont in the first place. I guess you could say I'm somewhat jealous. Good luck!!

I had posted some time ago that Vermont was starting receive other visas from other locations such as California and Nebraska. They were not marriage based visas. This may be why Vermont is slowing down. I got this information off of USCIS's website. I think it was effective April 1st.

Just my thought.

It could be that, just hope it doesn't slow down too much 'cus it would spoil my plans. :o

Once I knew I was going through Vermont and how fast it was I made some plans (that can be pushed back but wouldn't be my best option).
