Is it me, or does it look like the "easy" countries get priority on getting the NOA2? I wonder if NSC opens them, sees if it's from one of the countries that is easy to get a visa from, then do those first. Lots of them look like it took less than  6 months to get the NOA2 after receiving them, while ours has now been an entire year. Or am I reading something wrong?

What would you consider an easy country?

 

I’m from Germany, in two weeks our petition is at 11 months. Over in the Nebraska thread there are also „waiters“ from France and Canada, for instance, whose petitions have been with Nebraska for a while. I don’t think it‘s much faster for some countries than it is for others („unfortunately“ based on thinking Germany would be an „easy“ one ;-))

I could see that happening in some cases if they have number-of-cases-processed goals......and I have heard rumors of the "last in, first out" method being used, too..........but there are just too many variables to know exactly what happens behind those doors.

Canada has to be the "easiest" country considering its proximity and relationship to the US and how much information would readily be available. And for those at Nebraska it's taking them just as long to be approved as anyone else. 

Agreed.
