Will the Govt Shutdown influence the background check?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am new here.

I'm a 4th year PhD student in the US and plan to go back to China for a month with my family.

Because I'm in a biology department, it is likely that I will get a background check during the new visa process.(all colleagues in our department had it before)

I hope to know if the background check will be delayed or stopped by the government shut down?

My PI can only give me at most 2 months for the trip. If everything is ok, 2 months should be good for the new visa. But if not...

 

Please help me and thank you all!

I don't thinks the shutdown gonna effect the background check , because the security of the States is the first priorities , there are things that goes with the shutdown but not the security of the States.

There is no way to know.  As the checks involve other agencies, some that are unfunded, it could slow down the process, but it may not -- nobody can say.  It would not effect the security of the US, since the visa will not be issued until the checks are complete -- no matter how long it takes.
