Thread: background check

  1. #1
    Hello All:
    My father got an interview on feb 8, 2005. After the interview the officer told us that we need to wait for the background check clearance. Does anybody have an idea how long that will take and what they are checking on? Thanks

    Welcome Buddy !!
    Same with me and same with lots and lots of people.

    Background Check does not have any definite timeline. It can take anytime from 2-3 months to 2-3 years...Sad but FACT.

    I was told to visit INS office after 6 months of interview date..25 August I will be finishing my 6 months...

    Lets see what response i get now...
    Will keep you posted on this board.

    my back ground check as been pending for the past 10 months! Recently a senator intervened in our case and the INS said that it will make a decission in the next 10 months!

    freakin' ridiculous!

    Has any of you called the FBI?
    Sometimes it turns out they have never received the request.

    The background check is the clearance from FBI which takes its time.
    Horror stories have been posted here and other forums about it.Some have been waiting for 2 years with no word from the consulate.
    FBI has an email but trust me there is no use calling them or emailing them.Waiting for their response is like watching the grass grow.I have read quite a few posts where FBI responds after 6 months saying they have completed the check and nothing happens after that.
    Please sustain this thread,keep posting your comments and experiences.It is a terrible wait for the clearance and those suffering from it should exchange their thoughts,maybe this could help reduce stress.
