E-Safe processing time for i-212 waivers?

KatMposted 1 year ago

Hi, does anyone know how long it takes to process a i-212 waiver through eSAFE right now? Specifically under (7)(A)(i)(I) ground of refusal. I see that basically all waivers on this site are i-192s dealing with criminal records, so I'm wondering if there is a difference between the two.

How is your I-212 processing? And I wonder if you even need I-212 for (7)(A)(i)(I), since it's considered a withdrawal of your application to enter instead of removal (which I_212 is for).

I also have I-212 (but not I-192 or any other waiver), and I have been entering USA for the past six years. My experience, though, has been very different than the majority of cases here (people who only have I-192).

Thank you for your answer!!! I'm just getting the i-212 as I've been told that's all I need, and not i-192. It's been almost 2 months since biometrics so I don't know if my case counts as being more complicated.

@KatM Its not as common. Are you doing it with a waiver, or by itself? If by itself, similar. When done with a waiver, you get both approved at virtually the same time.
