My husband and I filed for a hardship pardon for him to get his Visa. We were approved and went to our appointment in Ciudad Juarez but he tested positive for marijuana. So we were told he had to wait 6 months then resubmit his medical in order to continue the process. Then wait for instructions.
My question is, how long after we resubmit his clean medical records will we have to wait for them to respond? Weeks? Months? And once they get the medical records will they give him his Visa or do you think we will have to wait again for another appointment/interview at the consulate?
No idea as to the first part of the question. Maybe as to the second.

There is no fixed waiting time ... yes, it could be weeks ... or it could be months.
They could call him in for another interview, or just send an e-mail asking him to drop off his passport.
No 2 cases are the same.
