    Long wait ahead

    Three conditions may apply

    - Visa condor - typical wait 3-4 months

    - Visa mantis - typical wait 3-4 months

    if both i.e. working in sensitive area and maybe ties to middle eastern country - 1 year easy

    - Criminal Background check - 1 week to 6 months

    Good Luck

      Re: Long wait ahead

      How do we know which categoty this belongs to. at the time they took the finger print and said 45 days.

      Is there a way the status can be checked. or we just have to wait without a clue!!

        Ask the consulate, they will tell you. They told me.

        There is no way to track, find status, expedite or any of that. I have been staring at the phone for 1 month now. I was told 2-3 days.

        So get prepared for a rough time ahead

        best of luck

          They had actually given some numbers to call, customer care I guess, can we call that number.?

                  The wait is getting long, though we got the finger print confirmation in just abt 35 days, its been abt 25 days (forth week) that his passport has been sent for stamping.

                  Any idea on how long stamping is taking these days, are there any guys who hv got their visa in more than 3 weeks.
