Final Decision

When an application goes to final decision How long does it usually take for an answer, and how is one usually notified. (email letter, phone call)
We are working on a PMV (300) filed in the US
Thanks

That is like asking how long a piece of string is since it totally depends on the office you lodged in and how they do things.

Your best bet is to contact your CO and ask how long it might take. They usually notify people of visa grant by e-mail, but may also send a letter too.

Hi dsmithtx,

My partner & I are in a similar situation.

How long have you been waiting since your application went into 'final decision' status?

Thanks.

Our CO should have received the last documents he requested Sept. 9th. We filed April 24th of this year. Good luck to you and your partner I can totally relate the the anticipation you are feeling.

Our CO received the additional info that he requested the 1st week in Sept.

We sent him an email to confirm he had the documents, & we were told that he had received them, & would contact us with an update on our application 'when appropriate'.

We submitted the PMV app. via Washington in March - going by the timelines others are posting, we are hoping that we won't be waiting too much longer.

Thanks for the well-wishes.

I don't mind sharing at all We learned about being close to final decision via email when our CO informed me that my Background check had expired. (long story). I receive the approval letter via email as well. I know how you must be feeling right now, the waiting is the hardest part. I sincerely hope that for you and your partner it will not be much longer and wish you the best of luck.
