  1. Hi everyone, I have been searching through this forum and did not find any topics that discussed EAD Expedite cases where USCIS has requested Proof. Share your experience and timeline here so we can get a better idea about how long it takes and what is the success rate. You can track mine in my signature. I requested EAD expedite review under Severe Financial Loss and I provided a letter from my employer to prove it. It has been 9 days since I faxed my letter and no change so far...
  2. Our attorney sent an expedite request for I601 by mail directly to the Nebraska Service Center, has anyone had luck with an expedite recently. I have not received anything(mail, email or online case updates) from USCIS regarding the expedite, it's been 11 (calendar days). How long does it take to hear back? Will they send a response? I did see the date "last updated" change online 4 days after we sent the request but the status didn't change so I am not sure if this means anything...any guidance here is appreciated.
  3. Has anyone tried requesting an expedite as of late? or have experience expediting via Montreal? we are the NVC stage, and we submitted ours on the 27th of April and received and email yesterday saying they will be reviewing it. Wondering how much work is actually being done at the consulate right now, or how long it usually takes..
  4. Is this with or without conditions ?
  5. I understand that the Embassy is closed for routine visa processing, but does anyone know if that includes the visas that where approved for expedite? since it is considered a emergency.
  6. I received an email notification on April 27, 2020 my request to expedite the 601 waiver was granted and my case would be forwarded to an officer. I’m waiting to see if the application is approved. Once approved what would be the next steps? Has anyone gone through this during COVID shutdown of the consulate
  7. Hello everyone, I applied for F1 OPT's employment authorization card and my case was received on February 26th 2020. Apparently USCIS RFE'd my application on April 1st 2020, but they never updated in their website that they are requesting additional evidence for my EAD i-765 application. The worst case happen, the RFE mail never enter into my mail-box (I called them and informed them about this, and they told me they send the RFE mail to wrong address........), so I never had any idea about this whole RFE situation (I constantly check my case status and it only says 'received' until now). Luckily I called them yesterday and only then did USCIS staff directly inform me that my application has been RFE'd. I have been requesting them to send the RFE through e-mail instead. I called them 4 times, and the last call the staff mentioned it could take from 15-days to 30 days for the RFE request to be processed, so until now I still have no clue what additional documents that USCIS wanted from me to continue processing my case I have a job offer that starts in June 8th, I have already contacted the company but this entire situation still makes me feel uneasy and I will like to expedite the case if possible. Can anyone here please share advice on expediting the process? I really need all the help I could get right now Thank you
  8. Hello everyone, PD 12 DEC 2019 TSC I called to expedite my i130 petition, sent my evidence, and on April 15 they replied with: “ we have received the requested evidence, the documentation submitted meets the requirement for expedited processing of your application, you should receive a decision or notice of further action within 45 days.” No replies yet. Does this mean they’ll expedite my petition or the decision might be denial too? anyone familiar with this?
  9. Hello! just wanted to update anyone with a expedite request approved......my husbands expedite was approved on 3/17/2020 the day before the embassy closed, I thought we wouldn’t hear anything from the consult until the reopened but today I received a call to schedule our interview! They have appointments as soon as the first week of April. The agent stated that expedites are being worked on during the shut down as they are considered emergency cases!
  10. How long does it takes to get a response from NVC the expedite request? I sent an expedite email last 15th Feb 2020 but i haven't receive acknowledgment email. Thank you.
  11. I thought I would share our experience (so far) with an expedited interview request at the consulate in Ciudad Juarez. My wife is petitioning for her mom. Our NVC case closed date was in January 2019. Wife found out she was pregnant in April. Baby is due in January. We knew there was a big backlog but we hoped to receive appointment by November through the regular process. But 10 months and nothing. Finally, the week before Thanksgiving we sent an expedite request to the NVC inbox. Attached a doctor letter confirming the pregnancy and due date. About 5 days later we received notice that the expedite request had been approved and the case was being forwarded to the consulate in Juarez. About a week after that my wife received a call from the consulate (Mexican phone number) asking when she wanted to have the appointment. They gave her one for following week. About a day later, we got an email with the official appointment notice. Arrived here in Juarez on Tuesday. Had the ASC and medical today. The crowds were light because consulate is closed Wed and Thu this week. Interview is Friday.
  12. My expedite was approved & sent to the embassy on 3/17/2020. Does anyone have a idea about how long does it take for embassy to contact me for the interview?
  13. Anyone here had faced this problem before with CEAC visa status check?!. NVC expedite request was approved last Tuesday on September/17 and NVC stated that my Application will be immediately forwarded to the US embassy. But on September /20 I got an email from NVC telling me to check my CEAC email. When I checked I saw that all my documents are received and accepted and I'm documentary qualified. But when I loged into my CEAC account to check the visa status to see if its in "Transit" or "Ready", I couldnt get into that page. I tried a lot since last week but it seems that the website is down. But it was never been down this long. And I could get into my documents page to see my accepted documents, paid fees and the NVC emails. Every time I put my Case number and the CAPTCHA, I get a message in red color that says the CAPTCHA i put is not correct!! I was first assuming because my application is expedited and already sent to the US embassy so that is why I couldnt check my visa status through NVC because the file is not with NVC anymore!! Am i correct?! But at the same time im asking myself, but after my interview is done, how can I check through NVC if my visa was issued or not yet!! Isnt it the same website?! My concern for now, why can't i reach my visa status after my case got expedited?! I haven't even got an email from the US embassy since last week regarding my interview.
  14. question..... I paid my NVC fees, submitted my documents and DS-260 on 2/26/2020...……. I also requested my application to be expedited via email today 2/27/2020 Does anyone have a idea of how long it will take to hear back from NVC?
  15. Hi all, my husband is a US citizen and I’m his spouse we are currently stationed in Germany. He works as a contractor for the US Military in Aviation. I work for the same company but I’m on the German system at the moment, I’m from England. So the company has offered me a promotion in America in their Corporate office which will be a pay rise but they can only hold the job for so long so if my visa takes longer than about four months the position won’t be there. also, my husbands contract ends in August and his job will be moved to the states. This will mean he will be separated from me and his son as he is not able to stay in Germany without a SOFA agreement. So we would have to pay for two homes another car etc. so you think this would qualify our visa to be expedited? thank you in advance!
  16. anyone here doing consular processing thru the London embassy or requested expedite at NVC level? we've been waiting so long to hear back from the NVC as to whether or not the London Embassy will grant the expedite.
  17. Evening All! Forgive me if this is in the wrong section. If it is could someone kindly move it to the right one? Thanks! I would like to go ahead and give some background on my immigration process thus far: I moved to New York on June 14th via K1 visa. Got married to my LOVE ❤️ on July 1st (Canada Day! lol), and sent my AOS package along with the EAD and AP on July 9, 2019 to the National Benefits Center. NOA 1 dated July 15, 2019, Bio-metrics was done on August 5, 2019. My field office is Albany, New York. A few weeks back I was on indeed looking at jobs curious to see if I would find my particular job available in the area that I'm living. I was checking periodically before and never had any luck finding my particular position: Senior Property Accountant. I was worried that I was in a niche career and that I wouldn't be able to find my positions since the area I live in generally doesn't have loads of condominiums/residential buildings which means they have 0 need for Property Management Firms and that I was going to have to settle with choosing a different path for my career once I received the EAD. The thought of downgrading position and work experience was not sitting well with me (even though it was my choice, so I'd have to live with it regardless). Well it happened I found the position I had been hoping I'd find: Senior Property Accountant at a nationally recognized company. So I thought "what the heck, let me apply". After waiting a few days I received an email to come in for an Interview. Well my interview went perfect and even before she did her final interview she sent me a tentative job offer contingent on getting my EAD expedited. So here comes the rest: October 1, 2019 - called USCIS and requested the EAD expedite October 4, 2019 - received email to send in additional documents October 9, 2019 - faxed in cover letter from Company describing position and reason for wanting them to expedite the EAD, job offer, job posting from indeed, and a copy of my resume October 17, 2019 - notification that they received my documents October 24, 2019 - notification that CARD IS BEING PRODUCED!!!! I requested the expedite based on financial hardship to the company. But I'll be honest it wasn't extreme urgent need, at least it wasn't explained that way in their cover letter. I was honestly worried that I wasn't going to get it and my only opportunity to work in my same field was going to slip right past me. But it happened, I got lucky, and they approved my EAD expedite. I should receive the card soon! I just can't believe it! I'm writing this to give others hope that you can do it too, so long as you provide them with what they are looking for. I am living proof that there is no harm in asking, it's a testament to all those out there that it truly never hurts to try. You literally have nothing to lose. Okay excited rant over... lol If you have any questions on the process or anything at all please ask. I'd be more than happy to help!! If it wasn't for visajourney I wouldn't have been able to make it through this far so this a big THANK YOU to everyone out there on this beautiful forum!
  18. I am little confused whether my expedite request approved or not.The update in the uscis site seems confusing.Here is the update I have Requested Expedite request on 07/19 On July 19, 2017, your request to have your case expedited, referral number T1F*********CSC, was assigned to an officer for response. After waiting 5 days my case updated with the below two updates. On July 24, 2017, we sent a response to your request to have your case expedited, referral number T1F********CSC. On July 24, 2017, your request to have your case expedited, referral number T1F********CSC, was completed. Does the last update mean that my expedite request accepted for the process or I have to wait for the response as they mentioned in one of the updates above. Your inputs and experiences on this are highly appreciated. Thank you.
  19. I was searching on this forum about this information and didn’t find anything so I want to shortly tell you about my experience about this type of case because even my lawyer didn’t had any type of information about this situation. I am talking about IR2 Visa Category (U.S citizen filling for child under 21) as you know sometimes Visa process mostly gets stuck at NVC or even USCIS and this info probably will be helpful for this category to expedite their case. If your children are 17 years old and they are about to turn 18 , they can’t use U.S citizenship act of 2000 benefits When they enter united states ,This means that they lose chance to derive citizenship from you when they enter united states.(they will get green card and will naturalize after 5 years) but you can help to change this situation for your good + win some time on NVC stage with expedite. If your child will turn 18 years old in 3 month (120 days) you can fill expedite request in NVC and you will get accepted. This means your case will be Immediately sent to U.S embassy without NVC reviews ( you will win about 3-4 month of NVC stage) and you will get your interview date really soon. But you should have paperwork (documents ready)for the interview . After your interview your child(en) can enter united states and they will get green card and derive citizenship without waiting 5 years... p.s I’m not sure if you can expedite your case from uscis stage but I’m definitely sure that you can expedite your case from NVC stage. You should be biological parent and must be U.S citizen by birth or Naturalization Information about child citizenship act of 2000 :https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/Intercountry-Adoption/adopt_ref/adoption-FAQs/child-citizenship-act-of-2000.html I hope this information will help some kind of categories, good luck and if you have any questions I will be happy to answer.
  20. Hi everyone, new on here and have some questions... I recently submitted my I130 for my wife (I'm a US Citizen and resident of mexico, she's Mexican) and we were approved in Mexico City on June 29, including a request for expedition due to job transfer. We received the I130 submission notice through email but have yet to receive it via snail mail... after reading all these forums, it seems like the best thing to do is call the Visa processing center in Ciudad Juarez until we receive a case number. HOWEVER, no one picks up any phones! I must have tried ten different numbers, trying all the dial pad options, but it's always automated or an operator transfers me to a dead line. Anyone in the same position?? This process is so stressful...
  21. My wife and I want to try and expedite our Petition. Do we have to call to try and expedite or can we do it online? (My wife (the petitioner) has serious chronic health issues. She’s currently living in Ireland with me but her visa runs out in July. We want to expedite on the basis that she requires me to care for her. We are hoping this will be expedited).
