Finally approved after 168 days at VSC!!!

27 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Finally my case has been approved on Sep 26.....168 days since I filed the petition with VSC. I have no idea if VSC approved my case by itself or VA's congresswoman made an inquiry into my case. A congressional letter was sent to Congresswoman Drake's office on Sep 21. 5 days later, the case is approved. I'm so happy now.... :luv::luv::luv:

For you who are still waiting for approval, I wish you all luck and speedy approval. Just be patient and your day will come. Good luck.

Wow, long one there at VSC, It was getting very close to matching the processing times posted on their site, VSC shows processing cases from before March 20. Which we all know is far from normal for VSC.

Glad you got it kicked out of there. Hopefully NVC and the Consulate is speedy for you.


OUR TIME LINE Please do a timeline it helps us all, thanks.
