What email address did it come from please?
TWP thanks. The email was from [email protected]
So it was an E2 visa for us and the offence is extremely similar to yours.
I wish you all the best and hope you get yours soon

The type of visa/offence makes no difference whatsoever except in being recommended for a waiver. Processing your application takes only 5 minutes. The 6-8 month wait time is due to the many hundreds of thousands of visas that are in line ahead of yours... sitting in piles on people's desks. Perhaps the guy's who's processing your visa doesn't work as fast as the guy who processed hsc0307's visa! There's no way to know, and there's absolutely nothing you can do about it.

You can if you want to, but no - you don't have to! You can remain in the US until the expiry date on the I-94 that you'll receive when you enter the US with your visa.

Thanks as always.
One more question, my wife has indefinite leave to remain in the UK with an Indian passport. Is she subject to the 2 year rule under an E2 spouse visa?

So timescales were as follows:

hsc0307 - it looks as though it took nearly 2 weeks for your passports to be returned - is this right?

Hi,

I had my visa interview May 27th this year and was declined the visa for moral turpitude for an offence over 20 years ago, the officer said she recommends me for a waiver. Has anyone attended close to this date and received their waiver yet? I was told 5 to 8 months which would put me on the cusp of when i am due to fly out. Stupidly i booked before interview as i didnt think a 20 year old conviction would be an issue. bah.

No, but she will eventually lose her LTR unless she actually lives in the UK. I don't know what the rules are for maintaining LTR, but 2 years out of the UK could definitely have a negative impact on her.

All you can do is wait I'm afraid, the US visa department does not recognise any convictions as spent as you have now found out, and this is why people on here always recommend NOT booking any sort of flight or holiday until you have the visa in hand, and you change the date of the flight?.

Thanks Mike. unfortunately i only just found this forum, had i have found this when i booked last December i would probably have my waiver now instead of biting my nails lol. I am pretty much resigned to the fact that my husband and daughter will be going without me as i cannot change the dates or get a refund. (i am a bargain hunter so the trip is non refundable and can only be cancelled and rebooked for an extortionate amount.)

The best i can do now is keep this thread updated as to when i get mine (assuming i will) to give other people indications and hope.

If you have been recommended for a waiver, then you will, almost certainly, get one, we haven't had any reports on here to say that anyone has had their waiver refused.

Unfortunately like others, I have just found this site.
My husband was refused a visa for our pre booked and paid family holiday for this December.
His appointment date was 5th Aug, he was told they were recommending him for a waiver of ineligibility, everything has been going quickly since and the officer said wait time is approx 5 months atm?
I have seen that Belfast embassy have their list of waiver applications too view online for progress? But I can't seam too find one for London applications?
We can't amend or change our booking so if he doesn't get one in time, it's safe too say we go without him or loose the holiday. My husband has rang a few times too see if they have started the process or for further updates?
