Congratulations to those that are current!
OK – I have now heard from two people that submitted the DS260 in late November (the latest was 26th November and have received their 2NL today). So – it seems the DS260 processing speed has improved a little. This is probably an indication that the majority of cases submitted their DS260 by September/October.
Hopefully that means we are seeing the end of the backlog and if correct we should start to see more interviews for the next batch (June interviews) coming from cases which go current in June instead of DS260 backlog cases as we have seen so far . That should help the VB progress a little for next month and by the June VB (July interviews) we can see “more normal” VB progress.
