    Do you know how many people are on the waitlist for u visa?

    I just want to get an idea of how long I have to wait to receive u visa. I applied on July 15, 2014. I'm in the waiting list since December 2016

    Almost 100,000 principal applicants (92,000-96,000 approx) and next year 2018 is 10th anniversary of the program, so Visa Cap definitely needs to increased and Pro Bono lawyers have to use these 2 factors to advocate for this. I think after Parole Policy will be in place by October, 1, 2017, in around 2018-2019 we might see some movement towars negotiating of changing the Cap, this is just a guess. Lets be strong.

    You should be getting in the next 2 years. As long as you have DA and EAD, you are good.

    Buddy, you are lucky at least you got DA. There are some people who are still waiting for it from June 2014 onwards. Btw, you stand good chance at FY 2018.

    Congratulations!!. At last patience and perseverance paid off. Was your case transferred to NSC.? I am from October 09, my case isn't transferred and I am yet to hear that good news from my lawyer .
