Recent London 221g Processing Experience after document received?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Just wanted to see if anyone's had recent experience with 221g processing times after Embassy London receives your requested documents. The Hong Kong police certificate hadn't arrived by the time of my wife's interview, so we got 221g'd pending the arrival of that document. We know it arrived on January 17 (finally managed to get a certificate overnighted with signature delivery), but we haven't heard anything since. 

 

They still have her passport, so no major concerns, we're just trying to manage expectations (being excited to get her over here while also not constantly agonizing over each and every single working day). Anyone with recent timelines for us to measure against? Knowing, of course, that YMMV.

 

Cheers.

Thanks for the reminder! So pretty much without warning, our CEAC status reverted to Ready on February 18th, then Issued on February 19th, and my wife picked up her passport from the courier on the 20th. We got her on a flight to Seattle on the 29th 🙌

 

All in all, our timeline was roughly:

 

July 2019 - I-130 applied DCF to Embassy London

Mid October 2019 - I-130 approved

Mid November 2019 - Interview completed (221g'd for missing Hong Kong police report)

January 17th, 2020 - HK police report arrives at Embassy London

February 18th, 2020 - Visa issued
