After I-601 approval instruction wait times?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

After you have recieved your I-601 approval, How long is it taking to get your instructions, I hear that there is a 60 day wait on instructions, which is crazy, I know for sure that after the consulate recieves your approval they will contact you in 5 days...How long is everyone waiting, or has waited, Most have waitted about 10 days...But what about those who havent, post your country you are applying to please, as well as the Approval time to date receieved instructions..there is no time line on this ANYWHERE...thank you!

My Husbands approval was July 14th, and it is August 20, 2014 and we are still waiting on instructions, we have been told it may take up to 90 days, after that we can file a status request to have them investigate the issue...other wise we have to wait..the lawyer has tried everything, I sent the scanned copy of approval and that was not good enough, they want the original from USCIS before they will proceed to give him instructions to pick up his visa.... :crying:

I would wing it and set up an interview take the original aprooved letter to them when i went with my fiance to the interview i saw a guy say that he was aproved they asked for the letter he didnt have it so they told him to wait it would have been different if he had the approval notice. If i were you i would give it a shot and take the approval notice to them you never know unless you try of course he will probably need a new medical and new policiacos and penales something like that. just try it you never know unless you give it a shot besides the medical is good for a year. Guatemalan embassy is a little slow but they arent as strict.
