    Unhappy ****please..please..help..waiver approved..but****

    Hello every one, My name is Nelly S. I have been following your post and forums for the past couple weeks and I am right there with everyone. Let me just tell you do not loose HOPE I wanted to share with everyone where my husbands case stands. And wanted to know if anyone has any suggestions or advice of how much time we are going have to wait. Or anyone that has gone throught the same case has advice to give me. This is how far my husbands journey has been:

    June 20, 2011- Initial interview visit. All documents submitted.

    July 17, 2011- I-601 Waiver submitted.

    March 5, 2012- I-601 Waiver approved.

    April 12, 2012- Embassy contacted my lawyer that they needed Police records re-submitted due to initial ones being expired.

    April 17, 2012- Husband submitted police records.

    Now we are just waiting and anxious. He is very scared for his life they have tried to robe him two times already. And my 7 yr old son ask, and asks for his daddy and I have no answers to give him. Please someone that has any advice or suggestions of how long it is going to take or when he will be given his visa. Or anyone that has gone through the same case please let me know how long the US embassy in Honduras will take to give him his visa I would greatly appreciate it. Ahead of time I thank you all for taking the time to read this forum.

    Welcome and congratulations....

    Did the consulate keep his passport?
    I am not sure the type of mailing Honduras uses, like (Mexico uses dhl) but you guys should get something in a few days.

    then you need to email the embassy in honduras give them your case number and ask them if they have received the police letters and what next. that is strange they should have asked for the police letters and passport, that way they just mail back the stamped passport when visa is issued. I would make sure with your lawyer that it wasn't just the police letters that were requested.

    If you look at some recent threads from 2012 in this same 601 Honduras section, you will see that the consulate drags its feet AFTER approval in many cases. I can imagine how frustrating it is to be so close and your husband to be in Honduras where it can be very dangerous.

    Just take a deep breath and focus on the fact that he will get it sooner rather than later.

    Keep us informed!!!!

    Congrats on the approval

    Thank you for reading my forum. And I have sent an e-mail twice and they just send back an automatic reply. And the embassy did just request the police records. My lawyer forward me the e-mail the Embassy sent her. But i will keep sending emails.

    i hate to say it but it seems like it might take a few months. my husband's took about a month a half or so, from the time they received the documents (police certificate and he had to redo medical and my financial information), to get the visa. There are some on here that took even longer than that, too. As for mailing the visa, from my experience, and what I've seen recently on this board, that office will generally call the applicant to come in and bring the passport, then they have to go back later, maybe the same afternoon, to pick it up with the visa in it.

    I will have to agree with you Sabrini, as far on my case; im back to the states but it took about 5 months from the date i got approved for them to issue my visa, I submited everything they asked at the beginning of January and then the wait time was horrible, i kept on sending too many e-mails and same reply that they had received all required documentation but to wait 4-5 weeks and those weeks became months and months...

    Good luck to you!!

    ohhh By the Way when they call you or e-mail you that your visa is ready to pick up is when u are going to take your passport, I've never heard them mail it to you!
