AoS processing times??
5:51 pm April 4, 2020

SO what happened to the processing times? I am aware of the fact that interviews etc are being postponed...but https://egov.uscis.gov/processing-times/ is not showing the NBC anymore. All of my forms (AP, EAD and AOS) went to the NBC and got the MSC- case number.

Where can I find the current processing times for AOS?

Entered the USA before corona outbreak

Hi everyone,

Not sure if there is already a topic opened about this. I booked my trip to the US on January 28th. Me and my husband (US citizen) stayed with my family in law in Florida, entered the usa on March 2nd. From that day the Corona started to spread heavily and it resulted in to a canceled flight back home. There were no direct flights back home (netherlands) I either had to stop in Mexico or Spain, which I didn't feel comfortable with. ( I don't want to be stuck in a another country). We decided to travel up to New Jersey. New York offered direct flights back home. I booked one for the 3rd of April. You can guess, canceled. Now the spread has even gotten worse here in New Jersey, but also in my country. Everyone says the best thing for me to do is to stay until it gets better and I don't feel comfortable flying now at all. But I have to leave the country by June 2nd (ESTA). Since we have a pending CR1 visa, I don't want to overstay. But what happens if I get sick or there will be a complete Lockdown, here or in the Netherlands. Crossing the boarding in Canada or Mexico is impossible, they wont let you cross now. Anyone with a similar story with more answers than me? Please help me out.

AOS / K1 / Coronavirus

Hi everyone,

I'm from the Netherlands but have been in the States on J1 status for the last 1.5 years. I will be out of status this upcoming Thursday.

We all know about all the current travel restrictions and the Coronavirus. This made my US fiance and I decide to get married and file AOS, instead of I travelling back to Europe in hopes of returning on a currently pending K1 and having to be seperate from him for an unknown amount of time. We got married over the weekend. However, we are not yet living together. We want to wait until we can have a proper, not rushed, religious ceremony that my parents will hopefully be able to attend, so the travel ban needs to lift for that to happen. We are willing to wait with a ceremony until October at the very latest. If the world is still shut down at that time, then we'll just have to have ceremony without them and move in together, but for now I think we feel it's better to wait to see what happens.

I am absolutely not trying to marry just to get a green card. We have made this decision in an attempt to navigate the current, unprecedented circumstances.

In the meantime, I am already on his lease, we have a joint bank account and I have proof of joining him on his health insurance. We have an affidavit sworn by a third party that our marriage is legitimate. I also have proof that we filed for K1 previously, which to me adds to the legitimacy of our intentions. We will definitely be living together by the time we have our interview and would be able to show pictures of the actual ceremony.

My idea was to write a cover letter that I attach to my petition, to explain the circumstances. We are just worried that not living together is going to make USCIS think we are committing visa fraud, and deny our application instantaneously without us having a chance to explain ourselves.

What do you guys think? Is a cover letter could enough? Any tips?

Medical Exam Vaccination record

Hi there,

I have filed for k1 before but due to the coronavirus restrictions am opting for AOS instead now that I'm still legally in the States.

At any rate, I am going for my medical exam this week and I'm supposed to bring my vaccination record. I have it, but it is in Dutch. What do I do about that? Do I need to get it translated before I go in?
