I believe pretty much everyone we filed last year is accounted for, but times are running around 8 to 9 months, or more.

keep in mind, the department of immigration still processing tens of thousands of amnesty applications from the haitens and Venezuelans, and the first ones that recieved their temp residecies are probably coming up on the permanent residency aplications time. meanwhile, inspite of all the b.s. p.r. spin from the administration, tens of thousands of Venezuelans are still entering the country, legally and illegally. haitens and venezuelans are now being allowed to do family reunion type visas.

I doubt the work load is ever going to go down again for the department of immigration, and they seem to find new ways to beucraticaly shoot themselves in the foot.

It took about 15 months from when we applied till we got permanent residency. Just keep checking with extranjeria, they didn’t call us when ours was ready, we had to go in and find out.

Wow that is a ridiculous amount of time! I am sure they will inform me through the website like with the temporary visas. Form my understanding you can no longer go to the office without a reservation.
