J1 Hardship Timeline at DOS

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Any experience/update  regarding the DOS J1 hardship processing time? Published timeline is 16-24 weeks after receipt of I-612/613. They had mine since May 11, 2019. Any recommendations?

Mine was sent to DOS by USCIS on March, 2020 and up to date the DOS website does not mention that my I-612 or I-613 were received !!! Anyone experienced such delay? I contacted both USCIS and DOS and basically USCIS stated that they sent it to DOS and DOS stated they did not receive it from USCIS!!! does that means it is lost somewhere 😞

This is terrible luck. Can they send it again? They usually post receipt within 4-6 weeks. I recommend having a congressional inquiry about it to uscis to request re-sending it. The fact they sent it to DOS means that they see a hardship case... good luck
