Handing in Waivers -Quarantine and timelines - Post here

J Rogersposted 2 years ago

Post real application stories here. Not "A guy told me" or "a few of my clients" but specific client experiences so others can see accurately what is happening.

There are rare exceptions, but whether you file a waiver, or a waiver AND an I-212 you simply get a waiver in return. That's why I tell clients to wait. Its an extra $930USD for the exact same waiver.

Sorry, that was meant for the response below

Client #2 entered the United States illegally in 2010.

@Just me
You should get it this week. Please post once you have it. Thanks.

Hot Shot replied 2 days ago   #1508

@Just me I hope it goes back to 6 months !! Ugh

Beex replied 2 days ago   #1507

@J Rogers
I think even with Lawyers both will get the notifications, The applicant and the Attorney if e-safe sends anything. Thanks.

hot shot replied 2 days ago   #1506

@Just me That is the standard cut and paste they send.

J Rogers replied 2 days ago   #1505

@Beex , Thanks for confirming. I hope stays at 7 months and two weeks! Mine was submitted to ARO on July 7. Hoping to get it next week... fingers crossed

Just me replied 2 days ago   #1504

@Just me yup. Exact same as I got. Based on recent posts they are at about 7months and 2 weeks currently

Beex replied 2 days ago   #1503

@J Rogers , is this standard response to asking about status update:

This application is on file with the CBP Admissibility Review Office (ARO). It is currently pending further review. Due to the individual circumstances of each waiver application, there is not a set timeframe to give as to when an application decision will be completed.
Forms I-192/I-212 waiver applications are processed in the order in which they are received. Additional information regarding processing times (currently at least 6 months) can be found at www.cbp.gov and accessed by entering “I-192” or “I-212” in the “SEARCH” box.

Any PII has been removed from this message.

Thank you,
Admissibility Review Office

@SteelMan Technically there should be no difference. My clients application are filed with me as "preparer" but they get all the emails which I prefer. With a Lawyer you are I assume depending on THEM to monitor the emails, which I don't like.

I have said it before, Waiver are a "sideline" for most lawyers. For a business like mine, its ALL I do, all day every day. (I have other staff that handle pardons and assist me.)

As far as i know same timing. Even Roger mentioned it a few times. If anyone has any experience with this please share. Thanks.
