I hear 8 weeks.....I sent mine in about 4 week ago and they charged my credit card just a few days ago.

Luckily they approved me without it a day after I sent the application away.

You mean they approved the visa without it?
I was only in the US for 13 months and am forced to get it...
I hope they bypass it since I'm also providing them with a UK Police Clearance(was there for 4 years)

I believe she was a special case because she had written documentation that they had okayed a channeler (quick) background report, before the policy changed to only accept the official FBI one

You would have to read earlier in the thread as its explained there but the quick version is that they originally told me over email that it would be ok to use a "channeler" to expedite the process. Their policy is to only allow the one direct from the FBI so my CO told me I had to get the official FBI one.

As a hail mary I forwarded him the email I got from the consulate telling me it would be ok thinking it wouldnt really matter and sent in my application to the FBI.

The next day he accepted the email saying it was ok and approved me.
