That's a good idea, link is attached here for anyone who wants to take a look and also add in dates from other sites they may have gotten information from regarding peoples turnaround dates, would be good to get some other June / July / August data down here so people can start to see a how close they may be.

update on my own situation:

Interview: 3rd August 2023
Email received to send passport: 28th Feb 2024
Passport dropped off to courier: 28th Feb 2024

1 day short of 30 weeks to receive email. Fingers crossed I get it back in time from them to travel on the 20th March. Good luck to everyone still waiting but looks like the August interview dates are now being processed!!

Well done! So the timelines are pretty much as expected. I anticipate mine in 5 days or so then I think. Will update here when it happens.

Congrats! Per my post above, I thought we'd start hearing at the 7 month mark. My B1/B2 was 3 months after you, hope the 7 months still stands true otherwise need to change my August holiday plans!

Thanks for the update. Still hoping for an email for our family member who went August 16th. I think they paid for the quick delivery once they get the email to send the passport but starting to worry as we fly March 23rd (his previous visa ran out this month and we didn’t use it due to Covid).

Excellent! Though can you change the edit setting to Edit mode, rather than view only?

Of course, done. Let me know if that works.

Working well, and I added a couple of hopefully useful columns.

PSA: All who've had a waiver in the past, or are waiting for a waiver, please input your experience here. Thank you on behalf of others!

I would argue that putting data from 2015 in that spreadsheet significantly pollutes everything else. The value is surely getting a sense of current timeframes?

Think the more data the better. Can always filter out data you're not interested in.

Quick Q and apologies if this is a stupid question but now I have my B1 VISA does this mean I still need to get an ESTA when I travel or does this VISA remove the need to get an ESTA?

It is oft said that the only stupid question is the one you don’t ask.

That said, the ESTA process is the present form for the statutory waiver of the visa requirement. And a Visa Waiver admission is under the B-1/2 categories.

Australia has a similar system but they call it an Electronic Visa. The EU (minus Ireland) is in the process of setting up a similar system called ETIAS.
