RFE is taking AGES! (or at least it feels like it)

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

So on the December 30th we received an RFE for some dates that were messed up on the DS-230, not to big of a deal. I was out of the country at the time so I wasn't able to respond back till the 7th they received it in their system on the 11th and I though all will be well. Now it hasn't been to terribly long, but it has been over two weeks now. Is it normal for such a simple RFE to be under "review?" I realize I may just be being a bit impatient (as I'm sure we all have at some point in this crazy process). Any ideas on how to get a better idea of what may be going on?

Next question, is it possible to schedule the Medical now? I don't think it is, but hey, it never hurts to ask!

Lastly, is there anything I can do to be a bit more proactive? I already sent all my evidence on this end to my lovely wife, and I'm just wondering what else I can do.

As always, any help, support, and advice is greatly appreciated.

Your petition is on hold until they finish processing the RFE. I'm sorry, I don't know the estimated amount of time that takes. Unfortunately, since it is on hold I don't think you're going to be able to schedule anything. If I recall correctly, you have to have the number on your approval letter to schedule. It's been a few months, and I have slept since then, so I'm a little fuzzy, but I THINK that's correct.

As far as being proactive to make it go faster on your end:

Get your immiunization records and get your immunization updated if necessary

Order your polict report

Make sure your current passport is in tip top shape

Those are the major things you can do to speed things up on your end.
