I guess, all people from India receives ds 5535? Not sure it happens to us because we live in other countries.

I just read that on 27th jan this couple was asked to submit the means they got their visa...but u know what the funny thing is? People keep updating and asking when there are waiting 4 visa but when they got their visa, they dont even bother to update that they got visa...atleast, it can help other people to understand the timeline..anyway...i m waiting 4 my visa..its been 3.5 weeks.. :)

True, but I am not sure why do people from India get it, is it something mandatory that everyone will get?
blank avatar Jazi on 2020-02-22 said:

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
