Wow! You guys were processed really quickly! Did you apply for an expedite or an I-129f?

Filed three times for expedite, once by phone and twice by congressional assistance. Never heard back on this last expedite request that was early February though all of the sudden it was approved. I had thought by expedite though never did receive a notice of expedite approval.

If you don't mind me asking, what was your reason for expedite?
blank avatar Raftnfish on 2020-04-21 said:
Found out it wasn’t actually expedited at USCIS. I do believe it received a little extra attention. 1st attempted civil unrest and humanitarian ==> Denied 2nd attempted extraordinary financial hardship ==> No response though approved

HK Consulate accepted an expedite based upon Financial Hardship

Good thing your Consulate is open. Congrats on your approval!

Hey guys! So when you went for your interview in HK, did it appear they were fully functioning or were there hardly any people there?

*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.
