First time waiver for me and my question is about the travel information on the form. Do I need to know where and when I plan to travel to? Just looking of having waiver done in advance of any specific travel plans and I’m unsure how to complete this section.
Thanks for any advice in advance.
you are absolutely right. Just as we see long lineups and delays in passports, just as we see airlines struggling and having to cancel or delay flights, the amount of people suddenly trying to travel all at once has created a traffic jam.
I have new clients applying, regular clients renewing, and many clients who WOULD have renewed but didn't for the 2 years were had the pandemic. So it is definitely the perfect storm.
However, as frustrating as this is, the aftermath of 9/11 was much worse. We had some waivers that took close to a YEAR.
This will get better, I predict by the late fall.
I suspect more folks handed in applications this summer and possibly more US government employees handling these things are taking summer holidays thus a “perfect storm” to create a backlog of waivers to be processed.
Just a complete guess/supposition on my part here. Perhaps come Fall time and when the summer holidays are over then we may see the timelines decrease a bit.
Once again just a complete guess on my part here.
I was told that my situation was a no brainer and a waiver would be given no problem. It’s my first time waiver and I was even okay with a 1 year waiver. I had a huge trip planned with my wife and daughter but I missed it. Pretty bummed to say the least. It’s definitely in the 75-80+ (I’m on day 75 today) range maybe even more considering the lack of updates. It’s silly because it’s the busiest time for travel given it’s summer months.
At this point I don’t even care when mine comes now but I will update on here regardless.
Goodluck to everyone waiting for upcoming trips/events.
It’s unbelievable that there still has been no update? Is it possible that approvals are not being given? Or are people just unwilling to share? It’s confusing for me that in almost 2 weeks, there’s been nothing. Or is there somewhere else we should be checking updates? Mine is 75 days since submission and 73 days since biometrics today. Any advice. @RG
Goodluck i applied May 3rd and I’m at 73 days today and had a trip planned to Disneyland with my daughter and i couldn’t go. Really disappointed and confused how zero updates have been made for end of April + May. Seriously feels like they took a vacation at the worst time possible.
Ok I’m still confused :(
Travel information section copied from application below:
Location at Which you Plan to Enter the United States (desired Port-of-Entry)
*21. Name of Port-of-Entry
*22. How do you plan to travel to the United States? (For example, by plane, ship, car)
*23. When do you plan to enter the United States? (mm/dd/yyyy)
*24. Approximate Length of Stay in the United States
*25. What is the purpose of your stay in the United States? Explain fully below.
Is this section not different than where biometrics will be done? Because I don’t have definitive travel plans to the US at this point and I’m just trying to have waiver in place prior to any travel plans this section is confusing. Do I just make up some travel plans or have to have something planned before I can complete this section?
Yes done thru esafe. Was just unsure of the wording in this section as it asks to detail travel plans (which I don’t have yet). If I’m only completing this for biometrics, my length of stay would be 1 day? Questions 20-25 on the travel information portion of the waiver.
