hello, i was looking for some info here regarding waiver processing times, but nothing is clear or i didn't find something good enough to answer my question!
So i am about to file an inadmissible waiver for a ten year bar, since i was in the US under illegally for 2 years (i entered legally). i left by my own, 2 years ago and now my husband is getting a E2 to work there, and he wants me with him of course....
Im pregnant of 4 months, id like to know if this will affect positively or so in the case and how long will it take to get the waiver answer... hopefully approved! :)
thx for ur answers :)
Thank you for posting your question.
If you are a Canadian citizen who is inadmissible to the US because of an unlawful presence bar under INA §212, you would likely need to submit Form I-192, Application for Advance Permission to Enter as Nonimmigrant to CBP at an approved CBP location. CBP will then forward the waiver application packet to the Admissibility Review Office (ARO). Recently, our firm has seen the ARO usually take 5-6 months to adjudicate these types of waiver applications.
If you are not a Canadian citizen, you would apply for your INA §212(d)(3) waiver at the same time you apply for your E-2 visa at a U.S. Consulate (no particular form is required). If the Consular Officer finds that the waiver application is meritorious, the Consulate will forward it to the ARO with a favorable recommendation. If the ARO agrees, they will approve the waiver application, notify the Consulate and the Consulate will issue the E-2 visa with the proper annotation. This process can vary from several weeks to a few months.
At this time, I would highly recommend that you speak to an immigration attorney experienced in nonimmigrant waivers to confirm whether you have favorable factors for a nonimmigrant waiver, answer any specific questions/concerns you may have, explain the relevant factors that the adjudicating agency will review, etc.
