I was wondering if anyone is experiencing this very unusual delay with the Department of State?

So i read thoroughly before applying for the J1 waiver based on hardship (US Government Funding involved). 


My time line below; 



1. Filled November 16, 2017


2. Request for more evidence and responded same month in July 2018


3. Prima facie case was established and hence docket forwarded to DOS for non-uscis advisory opinion.




Item Action Date
Sponsor Views Received January, 28 2019
Request for Sponsor Views Sent October, 16 2018
Form I-612 Received September, 23 2018
Form I-613 Received September, 23 2018
Change of Address Received April, 12 2018
Fee Received February, 14 2018
Form DS-3035 Received February, 14 2018
Form DS-2019 Received February, 14 2018
Statement Of Reason Received February, 14 2018


so from my timeline and the new processing time for Hardship waivers (16weeks to 24 weeks after 612/613 is received), i am outside the normal processing time at DOS. My last 3 emails to DoS has gone unanswered. My sponsor views was received almost 2 months ago. 


I want to know if anyone has or have had such stupid prolonging after 613/612 and sponsor views have been received?

Took you 7 months to only get to Form I-612/613 stage - wow.

I am only at 4 months and havent even got to 612/613.

Its painful, but looks like you are very close to favorable recommendation

Its a very painful wait and i hope yours doesn't take that long. Hopefully it will be a favorable recommendation.
