Persecution waiver timeline

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

This forum was very useful while I was awaiting my waiver. So I wanted to share my 'fear of persecution' J1 waiver timeline for the benefit of others. Country of nationality is India. 

 

USCIS received application: December 23, 2016

DOS received application: January 3, 2017

USCIS requests DOS opinion: July 6, 2017

DOS receives USCIS request: July 12, 2017(online status updated on July 18)

DOS sends favorable opinion: July 17, 2017(surprisingly fast just in 5 days!)

USCIS approves waiver: July 18, 2017

Waiver received in mail: July 28, 2017

 

Good luck to everyone,

Sach

sach85, when did you first see any update on the DOS website?

My timeline is 

USCIS received application: February 21, 2017

DOS received application: No information

USCIS requests DOS opinion: November 1, 2017

DOS receives USCIS request: No information

Is there something wrong here??

Hi Sach,

I will apply for J1 waiver based on persecution as you did. I am a bit confused. Do I need to file I-612 to USCIS first and then 3035 to DOS? What should be the order? Thanks for your response in advance.
