    Default 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...

    my info from someone who works at the VSC and cannot be named for
    obvious reasons is that you can expect delays from vermont.



    part of the reason is that the BCIS is finally recognizing the
    unfairness between the TSC NSC and VSC ;and the recent large number
    of protests, especially from the Texas petitioners has brought
    about changes.



    i am not involved with immigration. I have a friend who has a fiance is
    the only reason I have anything to do with this.

    I am able to give him some info and I am giving this group the
    same info.

    I'm not holding my breath on anything happening soon with Vermont mainly
    because I've pretty much given up hope. We have received no reply from
    a letter written about 3 weeks ago. We phoned the NSC and were told that
    they would let us know in 30 days. We had my fiance's congresswoman
    contact them more than 2 weeks ago and they told her that they were
    working on April K1's. Our only recourse it would seem is to ask the
    congresswoman to contact them again.

    I've reported in here before that this is my 2nd attempt at a K1
    because I (the Canadian) cancelled the first one with another
    American woman because it was not going to work out. So whether its
    because of that or for what ever the reason we have received no RFE
    or anything. Just total silence!! I've worn out the NOA1 piece of
    paper checking the online status which I have pretty much memorized
    because it says the same thing every time.



    NOA1 - 04/07/03



    NOA2 - God only knows
