    Eoir 42b visa availability for FY 2019

    Yep, mine's May 1st 2019. I am cautiously optimistic. At the rate things are going, it may seem that they are clearing a sort of temporary "backlog" created by the pandemic. We've had Individuals who were granted in Nov 2018 to Feb '19 being granted around the same time. That's just my guess...

    Eoir 42b visa availability for FY 2019

    I just received my renewal in the mail. It was approved 15 days ago. I hope my approval comes soon. These cards do not come cheap, let alone during a pandemic. I'd hate to keep spending $$ on renewals

    Eoir 42b visa availability for FY 2019

    Sorry I should have clarified, I have not received it yet. I just got the approval notification last week( which i guess means someone in USCIS is working). . I filed to renew on/around July 20th. My work permit expired September 29th. They do have that 180 day rule where you can work so long as...

    Eoir 42b visa availability for FY 2019

    Nothing. It’s hard being in limbo. I did have to renew my work permit which cost me $480. We might also have to spend the same on my hubby. I want to vent so hard but it will just make me sadder. I will keep you posted on any progress

    Eoir 42b visa availability for FY 2019

    I am resigned to the possibility of mine now being a two-year wait. Initially, I had calculated that I was going to be approved around September 2020, based on my court date of May 2019, it seems to me that the reality may be quite different. Either way, I hope the courts pick up and you get...

    @Rodasaspen any updates on your case. Just trying to get an idea of how long I may have to wait still.

    Eoir 42b visa availability for FY 2019

    Just won my COR case two days ago and the judge stated that he did not have any idea as to when we will receive our visas. I looked around and found a case where the judge reserved the case in January 2017 and the clients were granted a visa on May 1st 2018. Based on that, the waiting period may...

    DV 2015 KENYA SELECTEES FORUM

    I met some kenyan Indians in Chicago last year during an event and we dove right into talking Swahili. They were from Mombasa and so their Swahili was so much better than mine but I could imagine people around us baffled by how "different" we looked yet here we were speaking the same language...

    CEAC data update

    Thank you for that clarification @SusieQQQ , much appreciated, does that mean then that say a case number has a principal and 2 derivatives, will that then be counted as 3 visas towards the 50,000 ?

    CEAC data update

    @Britsimon this may be lame but help me understand....I am trying to figure out how, say in AF where I am from, they notified 58000 persons yet the CEAC data shows 39266 cases, where did the other 19000 cases "disappear" to? Reason is, I submitted my DS260 after you published the January CEAC...

    DV 2015 KENYA SELECTEES FORUM

    Can you talk to the school to either do your finals early or allow you to take your finals later as you have to travel?. Bottom line is I would not give up the opportunity of the green card as it opens more doors for you. Alternatively, I would still pursue the GC and have my credits transferred...
