    Processing time to get actual u visa

    Hi all,

    I'm from Feb 2015, currently outside of the us, and got put on u visa waitlist last week. I would like to find out how long it takes to get actual u visa to be issued. I couldn't find a valid source of information online. Some say, around a year. Some say at least 3 more years. I'm a bit confused. When I look at uscis processing times, there were around 50000 people were pending by the beginning of 2015. This gives around 5-5.5 years of complete waiting time. So I gotta wait a year or at max two years. Am I wrong? Have a good day everyone!

    You should get it in the next fiscal year.

    Let's do math,

    2015 => 49598 Pending (2015 Q2 (Jan-March)here)
    2016 => 10,019 Approved + 1,761 Denied = 11,780 => 37818 Pending from 2015 Q2 (Jan-March)
    2017 => 10,011 Approved + 2,042 Denied = 12,053 => 25765 Pending from 2015 Q2 (Jan-March)
    2018 => 10,009 Approved + 2,317 Denied = 12,326 => 13439 Pending from 2015 Q2 (Jan-March)

    2019 (Q1 Oct-Dec)=> 4,069 Approved + 519 Denied = 4588 => 8851 Pending from 2015

    Assume 2019 (Q2 -Q3) => 5921 Approve + 1500 Denied = 7469 => 1382 Pending from 2015

    In your case...Late this year or Early next year for sure
