k1 visa NOA2 .....still waiting

24 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Believe it or not, the totally obscene time they are forcing you to wait is average.

So complain about the system because, yes, it is absolutely abysmal and run by complete idiots.

But don't worry that there might be a specific problem with yours because you are right in the average of it all.

As stated, you're still within the normal turn around rate. Yes, I know the website still says 5 months... but in all actuality that time frame is really fluid. Nevertheless, I expect you'll be hearing something really soon! Good luck.

; Don't worry.. I know you might be tired of hearing "hang in there, your NOA2 will come anytime soon".

The final waiting step is the hardest, BUT really, I bet yours is on it's way :thumbs:VSC is still approving petitioners who have applied in beginning/med/and the end of August. And late July filers every now then....

Maybe your NOA2 is struggeling with hard wind :innocent: . You'll be one of the next who will post a topic "YES, RECEIVED NOA2" anytime soon :star: . Just trust on that little bit of patience you have left :thumbs: .

My bottle of non-alcohol is ready to pop open to have a toast for your approval.. :blush:
