Efficiency of the Electronic Processing System

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ok, so let me try to understand this.

Your case gets transferred to NVC and you apply for EP. You receive an email immediately after sending the OPTIN email that says they got it. About 7-10 business days later, you get the approval for EP. Around that time, you submit the support documents for your DS-260 and again receive the email saying they got an email from you. About 7-10 business days later, you get an email that says they have now received your email and can take up to 20 business days to review. IF you get a Checklist, then you have to respond, at which time it takes an additional 7-10 business days (sometimes 14) for them to even accept the Checklist response, and then they need another 20 business days to review AGAIN.

Now, I am not sure about this, but isn't the EP program supposed to be more efficient? It takes an average of 1 month to deal with every single hurdle with respect to an application.

Am I correct in that it makes no sense?

"frustrated" :)

sneak in an I-864 and you might have the rest of it.

FWIW, more countries have been added into the EP 'pilot program' so that adds in placeholders in a queue.

Sure, the queues get bogged down, as well.

I do miss the days of yore, when things went lickety-split at NVC for EP...

Efficiency has nothing to do with speed. But I can tell you coming from a country where mail gets lost that many have had to send in documents 2 and 3 and 4 times. being able to do EP starting 9/1 for Nigeria and not pay all those crazy mailing fees is a blessing. Sure it would be great we get speed also but this is a happy day for some of us.

But I understand your frustration. When I filed my I-130 way back march 2012 and saw the record for NVC was 11 days i was determined to break it. Heck it took 31 days for my case to get from USCIS to NVC I am so sure. LOL
