husband applied for a visa last Friday at the American embassy in London having had a previous minor conviction 19 years ago. He had a visa 10 years ago and was approved for a new one last week. We were told it the correct papers will be emailed to him but this could take 6 months. Just wondered if anyone has received theirs before the 6 months? Many thanks

    Exactly what is he supposed to be receiving that is supposed to take six months? – Michael Hampton Feb 11 '16 at 12:33
  • A tourist visa, he had a business one before – Stacey Feb 12 '16 at 12:52

    You can look up processing times yourself; in London it's currently five working days. So something else is going on here; please add in all the details you omitted. – Michael Hampton Feb 13 '16 at 17:16
  • Are you sure that he was approved? Was the term 'waiver of ineligibility" mentioned? – Doc Feb 13 '16 at 21:29

Most of the times they send everything before 6 months. You should have the contact info NVC or USCIS or an agent, and you could follow the status with them. You could also check the status online.
