Subject: For Roy (Help on BG Check)
  Hello Roy,

If you can please help on the following:

My timeline is as following:

Applied: Buffalo CIC.

App: Feb 2004
IA: Sept 2004 : Interview Waived; Meds Requested; RPRF Requested;
Meds Submitted: Nov 2004
Other Docs and RPRF Submitted: Dec 2004

Then I heard nothing - I asked by email the status on file and was told the case is in BG Check.

Since then I have asked on 2 other occassion and same answer. It is now about 1.5 Yrs since medicals and no answer.

Now I have checked several sites and all are vague on how much time it may take and what it includes and when the BG begins.

Do you have any idea on:

1. How long it will take
2. When does it begin? (After IA or After Medicals?)
3. What is included in BG Checks? I mean why it is taking so long? I have submitted the FBI Record and Police Clearance from Home Country as asked.
4. Can you write up some place? I mean in the US if the case takes too long you can write to the program manager to look into the matter.

Where is your home country?
If yours is among the mid-east asian blocks,
then it may take forever.

I think it means the BackGround Check and it usually takes a longer time if it is in South Asian Countries (if you were there atleast more than 5 years). For more accurate answers - you could ask for your CAIPS note.

Good Luck !

Just wait a little longer, I believe it´s almost done for you. It´s very difficult to say what CIC checks as the background info, but takes from 1 month to several years (absolutely unpredictable). One thing is for sure- you should order the CAIPS, it might clarify your situation.
We have similar timeline-
Applied in oct. 2003
Meds sept. 2004
Had a very long backgroung checking (was asknowledged in several e-mail responces).
Got passport request 20 days ago.
