So, today on the Forum someone brought to everyone's attention that the Application Processing times has significantly changed from 90 days to 66 days. That's for Step 1 that I have completed already. (You see....vacations are over and people have gone back to work. lol) Their comment prompted me to go ahead and have a look at the website. With all the changes that have been going on with the closure of the Buffalo office and such, they hadn't updated the site in a while for Step 2. Low and behold, having a look at Step 2 brought me this updated table. Yup...finally updated as of August 20th, and done quarterly. They removed Buffalo from the list and added the individual Visa offices that are processing the applications. Ie. Detroit, Los Angeles, New York and Seattle. Clearly, you see that I have highlighted the office that we are waiting on. lol
|It's a LONG ROAD!!|
At least now I have a Processing Deadline. And, you can better believe that if this drags out that long, that I will be on the phone with them a day after that 10 month mark. Oh gosh....that's all the way in.....March of 2013! Oh, but let's look at the positive. Always gotta look at the positive. Right? We aren't Guatamala!! Did you see that? 26 months! And that's just for Step 2. Holy cow!! Another positive - Furman's Visitor Record is good till May of 2013.
For now....I'm holding on to falling into that 6-8 month mark. Let's see what happens. Come on September! Holidays are over, back to work people!! lol Government workers usually take lots of summer holidays. You know i'm right!! lol
Anyways....I just wanted to bring this to your attention as it was brought to mine. We have a Processing Deadline to work with now. And yes...WE STILL HAVE TO WAIT!!! lol Only, for the next little while, we'll be waiting apart.
Miss my Furman!!
