60 Day Backlog?

24 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ok, so far, I'm just looking for a general idea of what date NVC is actually on. Last I checked, they received my documents for the Visa application (DS-260) on July 10. Initially, they told me 2-4 weeks to review. I called at 4 weeks, they told me 6 weeks. Then I got a notice saying they were backlogged and there was a 60 day wait. I called at 6 weeks now for the hell of it, and I asked specifically when I should receive an answer, and 2 separate times, I was told, By September 10... 60 Days... What the hell is going on? I asked them, "3 month wait, correct?", and got yelled at that it was 60 days, not business days. Both times this happened. Extremely rude. Before I could ask any other info, they would always yell out, "NO, Sir...". Irritated the absolute hell out of me. I never got any rude people from NVC before until yesterday, and today when I called. I was simply trying to ask what dates, if any knowledge, they were currently working on, so I had SOME idea how close. Anyone here that sent NVC their documents for a CR-1, and they recieved them before July 10 get the notice that it was approved yet? Very frustrating. 2 more weeks I guess... And this last process is absolutely killing my wife... And I am being literal, she is starting to get bouts of depression, and starting to worry me. We just want this process over with... It's agonizing!

60 BUSINESS days... Another words, 60 days, NOT counting weekends. It's what they do on all other documents usually, or tell me. So 30 business days is 6 weeks. 60 business days is about 3 months... I feel like they were just rude a-holes the last 2 days. Just curious how close other people were, or how long they actually waited. If it's actually 60 days, still want to shoot myself, but still better then 3 months!

Well, for a fact, it states everything is business days on every form, It makes a difference. I have been told wrong information consistently from ALL immigration offices. Like when I argued they input her information wrong, but they insisted I am wrong, and yelled at me. Then pointed the finger at me, that maybe I made a mistake... Upon review of the forms that I submitted, they were at fault. Apparently, I was married since 1989, but my wife was born in 2013 in their eyes, even argued on the phone about it, but they were clearly too stupid to notice it. I called, 6 times... The last person spotted it right away, noticed THEY made the mistake because she checked the forms I sent. Just an example of the pure stupidity I have delt with. They sent me an e-mail, they had reviewed my forms, and made numerous typos, and apologized for the mistake... It cost me and my wife an extra 30 days because of their mistake... 30 business days to be exact... After being explained that anything means business days (I called after 30 days), not counting weekends, because they don't operate weekends. Ooorrr how they changed her name on the forms, reason because it "Just didn't seem right, and the agent thought he was correcting a mistake he assumed I maybe had made."... After review, again they apologized for their typos and inability to scrutinize paperwork correctly.

How about you put the name "I", the damn petitioner put on the damn forms that match the other forms and all identifications... Oh wait... another 30 business days. Ok, ok... I'm ranting now... Sorry. Just... The amount of stupidity we have to go through... Annoying. This has happened about 4 times... between USCIS and NVC... we are at wits end here. Just wanted to see how long others had actually taken when got the same 60 days notice... After all, I was told 2-4 weeks, then 6 weeks, now 60 days... 6 weeks just passed. Looking to see if maybe there are any other surprises ready to be sprung.

I feel you... We're exactly waiting the effin last process before having everything get completed. We submitted DS-260 last july 11 and were noticed of the 30 business days to review. and based on terrible experiences i got from NVC Rude operators, sent them email instead and they responded after more than three weeks i think and it was really really frustrating to know that it's taking them 60days now to review the file. I mean, its taking forever right? I havent received letter of interview yet. I guess, we just have to patiently wait coz the NVC operators are not helping at all. Very rude and impatient that it gets us even more frustrated. Let's hope we still have the chance of that "30 business days" though.

I can relate with the typo stuff. I think it also cost us extra days, but I'm not sure. When we got our first email with our case number, they for some reason used my maiden name and spelt it wrong, so I asked to have it corrected. That took about two weeks to happen thankfully, but I think it reset the date of my DS-261. I don't know that for sure.

The most odd thing about this was CEAC had my name correct the whole time, it was just that one dopey email agent who couldn't read or spell.

ROC from CR-1 visa (Green Card expiration date was Nov 24th 2016)

 

Link to the evidence I submitted. Be sure to send evidence spanning your entire marriage (especially for K-1) or as far back as you can. Just one or two bank statements will not cut it. I primarily focused on the two years of living here since I came in on a CR-1. If you don't have the fundamentals (i.e. joint accounts/policies), you can explain why in the covering letter. E.g. "While we do not have joint utilities, we both contribute to them from our joint bank account".

April 2018 - August 7th 2018: Tons of service requests, emails and now senator involvement to get my corrected green card back because what the heck, USCIS. Also some time in May I sent a letter to Potomac telling them I want to withdraw my I-90 since CSC were handling it.

It is what it is...you won't change it by asking questions or obsessing over details....

Just keep calling and dont take them personally.

They deal with a lot of people that are upset and confused.

Good luck, I hope you get your case number tomorrow....

Our documents were received July 17. I spoke with an agent and he said the 60 days actually is counted from the time they received our choice of agent form which was July 10 & that its taking them 5 weeks to review the Ds 261 so I should expect to be invoiced my IV bill by next week. I'll come back and let you know when it happens.

That's not right... 60 days from choice of agent... Choice of agent, and I-184 is done before all that. I got the 60-day notice just for them to open up my IV documents, and 'review' them so we can get our interview date finally.... Basically, just someone to open my package and say, "Yup, it's all here... Send it to Bangkok. NEXT!"

Edit: By the way... It's been 6 weeks since July 10 when they received my documents... 2 more weeks, and it will hit their ridiculous 60 day wait, COUNTING weekends... Ugh... So irritating.

Just a slight change to what you said. "Yup, it's all here... Interview date is XX/XX/XX. Now send it to Bangkok. NEXT!".

From what I'm seeing in other forums Nvc is now processing and reviewing doc received on July 11th last week they process July 9th and 10th so it looks like they are about a little over a month behind. The 60 day wait is not business days is calendar days. I send in my AOS and IV package on 8/8/14 and got the 60 day wait email on 8/11/14 they start counting from the date in the email. by the looks of it they will review it sometime by end of Sept -_-
