83 days since interview

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I had always thought that the CSC was going to be the vast majority of waiting time. But now I've waited the same time SINCE the NOA2 as it took to GET the NOA2. Checking K-1 stats for January filers, thru Manila Consulate:

Out of 35 records total...

23 I129Fs pending (20 with interview date)

12 visas approved

I'm not sure what these numbers mean. We got the I129F approved and had the interview already but no visa yet. So we don't fit either category. I'm not sure why there is not a 3rd category.

Anyway what did the 12 people have to do to finally get their visa?

Our packet has been forwarded to the NSO for document verification TWO TIMES.

On my last call to NSO, "PJ" swears he sent it back Sep 5th. But the embassy swears they didn't get it in the Sep 5 batch.

Some more analysis of the January filers going thru Manila....

I show 21 interviews, all were done already and the latest was 8/27.

The visas that got approved took from 2 to 51 days (std deviation = 16 days for the successful group).

Those still waiting for a visa range from 19 to 126 days since interview.

So how many "standard dev's" have we been waiting? It ranges from 1 to 8 times the std dev of the successful visa group.

In our case we're at 6 std dev's (and counting ). We're smack in the middle of the group still waiting. I expect that some of the longest ones are visas that were issued (or the relationship ended), but the histories were not updated.

My big burning question is this... those nine of us still waiting... were we supposed to bribe somebody to get this thing moving?

How many of you successful ones had to "grease the wheels" a bit?
