Favorable recommendation from DOS and waiting for final decision from USCIS


Recommended Posts

I got favorable recommanedation from DOS last month. Does anyone know how long it will take to get final approval from USCIS? Based on the letter from DOS that says I'll be granted a waiver, does that mean I will get waiver eventually?


My case is very simple. I transfered from Lisbon to US as J1 in my first semester, and changed to F1 after then. And all my programs are either self funded or from TA jobs from university. The waiting is really upset. Based on the same case last year, it only took several weeks to get final approval from USCIS. Why this year it's still pending? It shows my status just recieved from another office...


Hope people who had/is having simliar experience share your opinion. Thanks!
