    J1 fear of persecution waiver

    Hey everyone. I got the final approval from USCIS. Just wanted to let you know. This forum helped me a lot for not stressing out and keeping the timeline. I hope you all get your approvals soon. Now will start another process in my life: H1B. So here is the final entry to my timeline: December 9, 2018: I received USCIS approval.

    Here is my full timeline: December 11, 2017: I-612 received by USCIS September 4, 2018: RFE received by me September 6, 2018: RFE response and additional documents received by USCIS October 25, 2018: I-612 and I-613 received by DoS (sent by USCIS) November 9, 2018: Favorable recommendation issued by DoS November 20, 2018: I received a copy of DoS recommendation Status: waiting for final USCIS decision (hopefully)

    Mine didn't appear on USCIS also. They sent RFE, got my response back, asked DoS for second opinion, received DoS recommendation. But their webpage still shows no update. I assume they don't update frequently.

    Here is a new item in my status: November 20, 2018: I received a copy of DoS recommendation by mail. I attached the document in case it helps.

    I think I forgot to check the status from DoS page also and just focused on USCIS page. Anyway, I got a favorable recommendation from DoS. Here is the additional timeline: October 25, 2018: I-612 and I-613 received by DoS November 9, 2018: Favorable recommendation by DoS I guess we still need to wait for USCIS final recommendation but it is most likely "favorable" as well after DoS. I hope you all get yours soon.

    Your USCIS part went pretty smooth. Good luck.

    This is the date on the receipt notice. 1 month is a long time but it looks like they are not handling anything within the expected time limits. So you may still receive it soon. But here is an information from the UCSIS webpage based on my receipt number. I send around the beginning of December 2017 and here is their warning. If you do not receive your receipt notice by January 10, 2018, please call the USCIS Contact Center at 1-800-375-5283.

    It is probably the call center number. It is not a direct line and I had to fight automated voices to find a person to talk to. But here it is: 1-800-375-5283

    Hi all, If it will be any help to someone, here is my timeline and status. I applied on persecution basis. December 11, 2017: I-612 received by USCIS September 4, 2018: RFE received by me September 6, 2018: RFE and documents received by USCIS I called yesterday because, on the RFE, it says "call us if you don't hear back in 60 days" and they said it is still processing. I also created an account on USCIS page using my receipt number but they even didn't update the page to reflect that they requested an RFE. The lady on the phone told that updating the USCIS page may be late sometimes.
