Comments : After turning in the police clearance at window X it took the embassy a month to find it. Claudeth should have turned it into windows 17-20 but they were closed and would not open again until the following Monday and her hotel was only paid through Saturday with return plane tickets for that Saturday. After I called the embassy several times the lady at ext. 5184 found the translation still sitting at window X. Three days later the visa was issued. Thank you lady at ext. 5184!

*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
