Just want to let you all know that I got call from US state dept this morning for my father's pending background clearance/name check, it has been cleared from here and it took 16 months for my 83 years elderly father. The next step is my father has to go thru all the new paper work one more time because the paper work was good for only 6 months, and he has to do medical again too. Its not a big deal the biggest obstacle AP is finally cleared. I have written letters to Mr. Bush, Condelezza Rice, Homeland security head Michael Chetkroff and Richard Boucher. I don't know if it helped me or it was just a matter of time. And last not least offcourse my congressman was following up with US embassy new delhi and state dept once a month.
These 16 months were long like years. I kept following up with us state dept once a week and us embassy new delhi once a month. I hope all of you who are going thru the same pain I was going thru might get help from my post.
