And to cap a crap day off:

Went to the BCIS website to check the status of the petition and lo and behold:

Application Type: I129F, PETITION FOR FIANCE(E)

Current Status:

Your I129F PETITION FOR FIANCE(E) was received on February 28, 2003. We mailed you a receipt with information about processing. It is taking between 150 and 180 days for us to process this kind of case. We will mail you a decision as soon as processing is complete.

FFS!

The processing time has just leapt up from 60-90 days to 150-180! Added to this, since the beginning of March a new segment has been added to the Visa timeline as all approved petitions have to be sent to the NVC (National Visa Centre) to be forwarded to the appropiate US Embassy abroad, which adds another approx 2-3 weeks onto the schedule.

Aaaargh. Bye bye August wedding. 🙁
Can’t go over and visit Bill either til I get approval. This sucks.

*growls*

    You’re starting to notice that first world countries don’t want immigrants then?

    The processing time for the Vermont center is around 45 days, time to move.
