Bobby Jo Rider, “How long is a Spousal Visa from India to the U.S.?”
Well, okay so I assume you mean, how long is the wait? The waits are actually pretty similar worldwide because a lot of it is taking place with the CR-1 Spousal Visa, that’s where you’re petitioning your spouse, you’re already married. You’ve got to get through the U.S. CIS, that part is done here in the United States, and then it goes to the National Visa Center, again here in the U.S.A. that’s in Portsmith New Hampshire. All of this stuff, there’s a lot of things that can drag it out, so have people waited a year, two years? Absolutely. But I can tell you most people do not. Most people are going to be around that seven month mark.
And to add two points there, that’s where we come in is Rapid Visa. There’s so many steps along the way, and rounds of paperwork that gets sent in, appointments to make, fees to pay, and that’s when you can call and we can help keep you on track. Because just like he was saying, sometimes it can take longer, but if you know what to do and you can get ready, and prepare, and have stuff reviewed, make plans ahead of time, that can really help speed up the process.
That’s right. The best thing you can do is get everything exactly right, know your deadlines, send the stuff in, in the proper order, this is how you get through it as quick as you can. And again, this is what we specialize in. If you’re going to use us we’ll get it done as quick as you possibly can, which right now is around seven months.
