Final J1 waiver from USCIS

118 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All

I am writing here so that I can get some help in following up with USCIS for my J1 waiver. I have received favorable recommendation from DOS on 12/20/2016 however havent heard anything from USCIS yet. I havent received the receipt for the J1 waiver from USCIS yet. The worrying part is that when I call USCIS customer care number they tell me they dont know anything about DOS & the only form they understand is form I612 however my J1 waiver is based on no objection & I dont need to file for i612 , I also asked them to help search my receipt number however the response I get is my information is not yet in their system.

 

SO I am really getting concerned now as its been more than a month DOS has send a favorable recommendation to USCIS & till now there is no entry in USCIS system. So is there anyone sailing in the same boat ? are there people waiting for USCIS reply for getting their final J1 waiver & if yes how do we follow up with USCIS to find my J1 waiver application & if possible expedite the process.

Same situation. Recommendation sent on 12/21/2016. Call USCIS today once again but they cannot find my case. Could anyone who has a receipt number can help me check whether USCIS has received any cases between 12/20/2016 and 01/20/2017 by changing the last several digits of your receipt number?

Any idea on processing time for vermount center for I-612 j1 waiver application . I applied under no objection.

Atleast you got the receipt from USCIS that they received your waiver form. I have not received the receipt as well. You can call customer service & ask them what date application they are processing. However keep us updated once you get your waiver from USCIS.

I Contacted Vermont USCIS center and was informed that they are processing Oct 10,16 as of Nov 30,16 cases.

I asked for the expedite the process of my case and the person advised me, waiting is better than placing an expedite request( it seems it takes additional 2 months to process the request)

I could see the receipt numbers above and below me got approved who's cases received in the month of November, 3rd and 4th week and December 1st and 2 nd week. 

this is the latest info I have. People let me know if you have anything to share, Thanks
