25 Aug How does the pandemic impact the most common U.S. immigration processes both here in the U.S. and abroad?
The current pandemic has created many issues with processing cases, creating delays that frustrate those abroad and those currently in the States. When it comes to applicants currently in the United States, COVID-19 has created delays in scheduling interviews, taking biometrics, and having decisions be issued on pending applications. When it comes to people applying for visas abroad, movement varies greatly on the consulate and country. Some consulates are entirely closed while others are back to fully functioning. We have seen processing times increase, but are carefully monitoring our client’s cases so everyone can be prepared when movement is possible.
