Filtering out the Philippines?

I realise that the processing times for TSC K1 are only estimates - but all the people from the Philippines getting priority treatment ahead of everyone else is really messing up the times - it's showing 3rd August at the moment which is incredibly hard to swallow for a June Filer...

Any way that those people who got their applications from the rest of the world could be used exclusively, as it gives a totally unrealistic and demoralising result...

I agree with you . They need to make this process fair for everyone unless of an emergency. I have to wait 1 to 2 years for the embassy to give my wife an interview and they wont let me transfew the case somewhere else. Sad part is theres nothing we can do about it but wait. Good lucky my friend

Thank you both for your kind comments. I am just wondering if the estimates posted on VisaJourney should be changed, as the 5-month delay appears to be based on processing applications in order of receipt. So logically, any reports by K1 filers from the Phillipines that they have had their NOA2 swiftly, should actually INCREASE the estimate of the time it will take for all of us.

So for example, a report that it took 24 days, should not shorten the averages, but lengthen them...... so the estimate of 3rd August should actually be 3rd May....

the estimates are based on stored data.

so if the math was changed, to exclude PI records, I don't see the harm.

Must to put something in another subforum, to get the site owner's attention.

One year ago Typhoon Yolanda devastated Tacloban in the Philippines, killing over 6,000, leaving hundreds of thousands homeland ... many are still struggling today.

At least your beneficiary had a home the past 5 months. May Filipino beneficiaries still do not have homes, making it very difficult to receive mail to process their visas. It goes well beyond priority at this point as it is a necessity they [Filipinos] have their cases handled first.

It has nothing to do with Philippine cases being processed quicker, it has to do with managing expectations of typical processing times for the VJ community. If the site administrator can sort the data without the Philippine beneficiary cases the rest of the community will have a better idea of when their cases will be decided and expectations better managed.

I posted a plea to all from Phillipines and requested them to remove their NOA2 date from their timeline so the system doesn't count them as approved and we get a realistic estimate. My plea was deleted :-( I am renewing my request again to VJ Fillipino members. Please delete your NOA2 date. Thanks in advance :-)

it'd be easier for the website owner to do some coding, filtering them out, instead.

have you thought it out, along those lines, instead?

All the CSC filers that put TSC as their processing center (confusing TSC with the Texas Lockbox) also mess up the estimates, there's probably way more of those errors than anything else. Try not to get too hung up on the estimates.

Yes the Philippines did get an expedite because of Yolanda. On a global scale it gave us an advantage, even for my wife, who was safely in Hong Kong working at her job when Yolanda struck. Our NOA2 took only 7 weeks. But the sheer volume at the Manila Embassy negated all of that trying to get an interview. Took us 2 months to get that interview, and we were one of the lucky ones. Many had to wait that long just to sign up for an interview date.

Altogether it took us 9 months from intial filing to plane ride to New York.

I thought the expediting of cases from the Philippines had ended.

Although it certainly makes sense to filter expedited cases out of the expected processing time. As they would just distort the value.
