K3 Visa and Work Permit (I-765)
 
Hello,

Does anyone know how long the current (July 02) waiting time is for a work authorization to arrive once fingerprinting has been done?

I am in the US on a K3 Visa and am eagerly awaiting a job offer from a financial institution I've been interviewing with. The problem is, they cannot offer me the position until my work permit arrives. I've tried calling the INS general information # they are not helpful.

Does anyone know what the average wait time is?

Thank you.

The average wait time for an I-765 filed at an INS district office together with an
I-485 is probably about 2 months. However, some INS district offices have same-day
processing, and others take longer, I'd say up to 4 months.

This site has some figures which may give you an estimate for your district office:

The only source of current, accurate information on processing times for your
particular INS district office is probably a busy immigration attorney in the area.

There are expedite procedures for the I-765 at most INS district offices. You might
be eligible; check with an attorney, or pay a visit to the INS district office to
find out the expedite procedures. Sometimes a letter of urgency from a prospective
employer will do the trick.
