So my NOA1 was 3/11/2020. We waited patiently and FINALLY on 12/31/2020 we got a notice but it was only a notice saying that “Case was transferred and new office has jurisdiction” when I received the actual letter, it stated that the “security screenings” have not been completed. What does that mean and how long can that take? I live in US and she’s in Ghana. This has become so frustrating. We are now 32 days away from ONE year waiting. Can someone provide some light on this situation please?

Our case was transferred 21 oct 2019 and we are still waiting.  Our Noa1 was 5th of june 2019.

 

Your case was transferred because they need more/extra background checks it sounds like.  A deeper search

The U.S. Embassy in Accra remains unable to resume routine immigrant and nonimmigrant visa services at this time. We will resume routine visa services as soon as possible but are unable to provide a specific date. 

 

And when the embassy does resume interviews ,  they will do the ones that were cancelled last spring and more than likely give spouse interviews priority.   

BTW even before the covid issues high fraud countries took a lot longer than non high fraud countries even for K1  such as yours

Some guesses on why your case requires extended security screening -- Do you have prior criminal convictions?  Do you have a job that requires security clearance?

 

Current estimate for I-129F processing in Vermont service center is 21.5 to 27.5 months -- https://egov.uscis.gov/processing-times/

For K-1s, when cases are transferred from the CSC to Vermont generally there is a criminal background for the petitioner.
