IR Visa when to call and check?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All!

I am not on month 6 since USCIS got my petition and sent my NOA1. Ive checked the website and no updates at all.

My immigration guy (i have used him before and he did a good job) says it takes generally 6-10 months with 6-7 being the average for the process.

I dont want to call to be a pain but any advice  as to when things might kick up?  I am headed to The Philippines for June and July to be with the wife and fingers crossed she comes back with me

Your immigration guy is wrong......The average is closer to 12-15 months for the entire process (submitting to visa in hand)

You are within normal processing times. It's taking about 8 to 10 months at most service centers. Vermont seems the fastest at about 6 to 7 months.
Calling will do nothing for you. Because it's too early for a service request.

You should keep an eye on your incoming mail.

 

We received our NOA2 by mail about a month ago (dated February 5, 2019), and neither USCIS websites (nor the automated phone Case Status) have been updated to indicate the approval; everything still indicates that our case was "received" in July 2018.

Yes their website is horrible with updates. Don't know what's up.
