NOA2 Response Times

Good Evening:

As the deadline according to VJ approaches to, God Willing, receive a positive response on our NOA2, I have observed that some individuals from January have begun to receive responses. I know it's still early in the game, but I'm wondering if the response time also has to do with the beneficiary's country. How is the order of the review process determined?

Also, at what point should I contact USCIS if I haven't heard anything? Should I go by VJ time or give it the full five months as indicated on the USCIS website?

Your recommendations and input are greatly appreciated.

God bless and good luck! :thumbs:

Patience is the key as your visa journey progresses my friend. Without any RFE's, you are looking at a time frame between 4-6 months. I had one RFE due to the fact that I missed answering one question. That cost me and my fiancee an extra 60 days. As far as the country, it doesn't necessary mean anything. I know some countries are high fraud more than others. However, right now, USCIS is looking at you and your background only. Once you receive the NOA2, then the search of background begins on your fiance/fiancee.

So in the meantime, do a lot of research on VJ, pray, and stay focused. Also, read up on which DS forms you and your fiance will need to complete. Keeping yourself busy will help make time go by a little quicker. Good luck to you and yours. :thumbs::D

Welcome to the forum.

The stats at the VJ forum are an estimate, as are all of the stats from USCIS. Give it the full five months, hope you don't get a RFE... :blink: ... It will happen, a lack of patience will likely not result in a NOA2 happening any faster. Please remember this visa journey is a marathon, not a sprint. :whistle:

Good luck on your visa journey.
