  • Anyone Vermont Approved Recently?


    Waiting desperately for VSC to do their thing with my application.



    I know I'm VERY lucky to be filing at VSC but I haven't heard of any
    recent approvals - can anyone give me a glimmer of hope?



    Online status says received June 30th and taking 30 to 45 days to
    process.



    Meant to be getting married on Sept 6th in USA, plans made back in
    January when my fiance was living with me and working in England, then
    was called back to the US.



    Not our fault - getting very depressed...

        Nothing new from Vermont so far- yet as long as things are in a
        reasonable time frame (Matt Udall, I guess I learnt your lesson ;-) )
        there should not be a thing to worry about... got trapped myself in the
        September wedding plan trap... well- thank God we are flexible!!!



        Keeping my fingers crossed for all of you!



        Greetings,



        Rebecca.

            I have just got off the phone to the National Customer Service Centre,
            where I enquired about delays at Vermont.



            They assured me that they are aware of no such delays at Vermont, that
            they would have been informed if there were delays, and that the Fiance
            Visa applications from Vermont are being processed within a month. I
            can only hope that this information is correct.



            Although this news will not help those individuals whose cases are
            taking longer than they should, or who are applying for visas other
            than the K1, I hope it helps to reassure others.

              Thanks for the update, any news helps.



              Could you clarify the part about "Fiance Visa applications from
              Vermont are being processed within a month"



              i.e. are they saying that all fiance visa applications are only taking 1
              month to process??!!!

              49 days for me and still counting...

                Sorry, Karen, they weren't more specific - clearly not 'all'
                applications are being processed within a month.



                However, the message from the Customer Service Centre seems to be that
                there is no particular reason why anybody should be experiencing delays
                through Vermont, and it is certainly not the case that everybody should
                expect delays. Again, I very much hope that this is correct.



                I called the Centre from the UK, and found them very helpful. I would
                recommend that people whose K1 Visa cases are taking longer than the
                estimation given on their receipt contact the National Customer Service
                Centre. (Sorry if I'm 'teaching grandmothers to suck eggs'! Just a
                suggestion.)

                  Something you will learn very quickly is that the people at the
                  service centers don't know their but from a hole in the ground. They
                  see the same information on their screen that you can see online or
                  over the phone.



                  Not to burst your bubble, but I think you'd be hard pressed to have
                  everything done by Sept 6. I too went thorough vermont and I was lucky
                  mine was done in 22 days. You may have the approval by then, but can
                  the UK have your visa to you by then.....I doubt it. I surely hope you
                  can have it by then, I know just planning the wedding is enough to
                  stress you out let alone everything else.

                    Hi Linda (& Eric!)

                    You said you were approved in 22 days. Firstly, CONGRATULATIONS!
                    Secondly, me (and many others) are confused as to whether the processing
                    times quoted are business days or calendar days. Can you please
                    clarify, as you are lucky enough to be able to give an informed answer.



                    Many thanks.

                      Dawn,



                      Interesting. I've made a few call to the NCSC in regard to my I-129f
                      petition at the VSC, and I was consistently told that Vermont is taking
                      60 days. Each person I spoke with refused to issue an inquiry to the
                      VSC until after the 60 days - calendar days - had passed.



                      91 days, without an RFE, and counting...

                      25 days waiting for a response to the NCSC inquiry...



                      Regards, JEff

                          My latest information from Vermont is that they are taking between 60 -
                          90 days to process I-129F's (someone also told me 90 - 120 days but I am
                          trying to ignore that!). Unbelievable (and extremely unfair) that you
                          are at 91 days without even an RFE to cause a delay.



                          They also said that ONCE it is with an adjudicating officer, it'll take
                          a WEEK to process!



                          I wish you loads of luck, unfortunately we all need it.



                          P.S. It's SO frustrating that people who simply decide on the spur of
                          the moment to get married after travelling on a Visa Waiver, can
                          then stay and adjust status, whereas we poor folks going down the
                          "proper" route are subjected to all this...
