O1A - Administrative Processing from 5 weeks

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what the standard duration for administrative processing of an O1A visa would be?

 

My O1 got approved by USCIS and I attended my Consular Processing interview @ Abu Dhabi, UAE on Oct 29th, 2018. I was given a yellow-slip and told I'd hear back from them the same day with a request for additional data. I finally heard back from them 2 weeks later requesting for nothing else by my "CV/Resume". It's been 3 weeks since I sent that over and am yet to hear back. Anyone else here with similar experiences? Does anyone know if there is any way to expedite this?

There is no way to expedite it. Trust me, I've just (almost) waited it out (not completely yet since I haven't got my passport back), which took over 11 weeks. Things that you CAN do is make inquires to the embassy/consulate once or twice a week after its pending status reaches 60 days, lest they forget to process your case.  You also could contact your lawyer and congressman after it reaches 90 days and ask them to inquire the progress on your behalf.

Any news? Visa processes are so annoying!
