Current Processing Times for the 212(d)(3) Non-Immigrant Waiver

212(d)(3) Waiver Processing Times

The American Immigration Lawyers Association has provided an update on current processing times for the 212(d)(3) non-immigrant waiver that coincides with the experiences of my clients who I have prepared and filed non-immigrant waivers for.

Waivers submitted at Land Border Ports of Entry (generally for Canadians filing 212(d)(3) waivers in conjunction with the Form I-192): The Admissibility Review Office is reporting at least 130 days from the date of receipt of the waiver application to reach a decision.  A full review of circumstances may take up to six months or longer depending on the complexity of the situation and completeness of the application.

Waivers submitted at U.S. Consulates: The Admissibility Review Office is reporting at least 130 days from submission by the U.S. Department of State.

For further information, please refer to detailed information on the 212(d)(3) waiver and my legal services for non-immigrant waiver clients.
