Thank you! And that you're right behind us

The RFI gave us 14 days to submit, we did inside of 30 hours (ha!) so i'm hoping by the 14 day deadline - next week (8/21) - we will hear something!

I hope you do too! I just saw that Luvv72's 300 was granted 11th of July so you're next!

Just heard of TWO American 309 grants (on another forum) through Ottawa. August/September 2018 applicants and both had RFIs last week like those of us here. Hoping for some good news real soon!

Hi
I am completely new to this forum,so please pardon my ignorance!I am currently in US and my husband in Australia. We filed for a spouse visa in April. We had uploaded a few required documents,but hadnt done it completely. We received a notification requesting further documents in 28 days. Is there a way to know where the case is getting processed? Is it in DC? How long does it normally take after this notification for the visa provided we submit the documents?

Thank you in advance.

In the email from home affairs it should mention where they are based.

That said, it’s important to upload everything straight away, as immigration can at any time make a decision on your application. For the cost and importance of the visa, I’d worry more at this stage about completing your application than processing times and consulates. Good luck!

Ditto to nyctombe thoughts to focus on submitting everything so it's "decision ready". It's my understanding that all applications for US Citizen are initially processed through the Washington DC embassy with some being outsourced to embassies with slower workloads. Similar to the the Ottawa grants mentioned above, I recall a case several months ago where one case officer in the US was working an application but the final grant came through the Santiago, Chile consulate.

Hi, this is the first time I’m posting on here, I’ve been a silent follower for a while now. I felt like I needed to thank everyone on here that has offered insight and support for myself and every one of us in this situation. You have all been super helpful. I’ve found so much information on this forum!

I’m Australian and my husband is from El Salvador but living in New York under DACA.

We lodged in the US 30th January 2019 fully front loaded without an immigration agent
Received an RFI 26th July 2019 for a state police check we had overlooked.
And we received our golden email this morning 17th August 2019 that he was granted his 309.

It feels so surreal but after seeing all the traction in the Washington office recently it made me so optimistic! I’m sure many more grants are coming and I’m excited for every one of you!
