Clarification on IMBRA Recall

109 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Good news (for me anyway)!!!

The chap I spoke to at the London Embassy just called me back and

told me that the Department of Homeland Security are recalling K1

cases whose RECEIPT NOTICE, that means NOA1, is dated March 6th

or thereafter.

Let me re-iterate: if your NOA2 is after March 6th, YOU'RE OK!

If your NOA1 is date March 6th or thereafter, then your case is subject

to the new security checks.

Sorry for the scare, folks. Another DHS screw up. Excuse me now while I

go have a heart attack.....

OK not to sound mercenary here, but aren't we still affected? You guys, by rights, should have interviews before us so if they halt our process to get your interviews in...aren't we getting pushed back. TRUST ME - I KNOW you are all getting the short end of the stick thanks to DHS but I'm still not 100% comfortable with this for all of us.

I still feel so angry for you elwintro!


And so he did what countless punk-rock songs had told him to do so many times before: he lived his life

10/07/2006 WEDDING DAY!

February: Oops, RFE for a REGISTERED marriage certificate. Oops! Overnighted it.

02/28/2007 Paul gets email letting us know his GREENCARD is on it's way! It's done...for now!

03/09/2007 Paul's greencard arrives. And breathe...

We began with mailing the I-129 in on February 27, 2006 so the whole process took us approx. one year.

Good luck out there!

I'm still pencilled in for this Monday. The chap I spoke to was great. He

went over all the forms and made sure I had everything I needed and

am good to go. I assume they'll be calling a lot of people and rescheduling

appointments today.

London are a great embassy, so I'm sure they'll do their best.

So when they called you back did they say your interview date and time was still as originally planned ?

nevermind you posted the answer to this before I had a chance to see it ... :)

Thanks. By the time I'd heard from the embassy again, I had already come

to terms with the situation and was thinking up all sorts of backup plans so

I could break the news to my fiancee and not have her fall completely to

pieces.

I'm a bit stressed out right now by it, but I don't care anymore. Everything

is still going ahead as planned, so I'm more than happy.

As for everyone else being affected, I'd say yes: there are going to be delays

to case processing times because of these new security checks. It still stinks.

Congress really needs to review the immigration situation. It's a completely

unfair system that's only being made worse.

Good luck to all still waiting for approvals.
