@zmiika22 The truth is your recruiter has the power to only know whether CI is pending or closed. The adjudication of that clearance is what he or she is waiting on. As soon as that is done with, your clearances are sent to MEPS, where a quick MSSD is processed and your MOS is retrieved, along with an updated contract for final signature and then your ship date will be reveled based on the availability of seats for the AIT of your MOS.
@ritu Hey Ritu thanks a lot for sharing the information. Can you please share on what are you planning to do next? apart from the survey thing. Please do share your updates and help us all. Thank You, All the best and Take Care
@hg17 Hi this may be a little late but that form you mentioned is for DACA only. The Deferred Action I applied is not DACA. Anyway I am in the process of submitting additional evidence for my DA case. It took USCIS a while to give me response of any sort, 5 months to be exact. However, I did send a complaint to the ombudsman in and after a month or so USCIS snail-mailed me RFE or "request for evidence" in early August 2017. I am now submitting them tom. Hopefully everything goes well. There are some MAVNIs who have been granted DA. Maryland has some successful MAVNI DA applications and some in the mid to east coast. But not everyone who applied for DA got approved. If anyone isn't part of this MAVNI FB group page yet, here is the link https://www.facebook.com/groups/328344235771/?ref=bookmarks
@kyle37 Thanks, I really hope that it is a matter of time, there is no reason that the US military deprives itself from such opportunity to have well edcuated soldiers and with critical skills among its people
@tep31 thanks for providing some information regarding DA. I'm also aware of the info provided above, yet on the documents provided by the USCIS for DA, it doesn't not mention Army Reserve soldiers are not required to file for DA. At least I was not able to find it anywhere. The whole thing is a little vague. For instance by "not required" do they mean DA is optional AR soldiers or if you apply it will not be granted? What about Reserve MAVNI soldiers family members? What about work authorization for Reverse soldiers that have financial hardship if you don't have DA, can you apply for it anyway? See, I'm not necessarily asking you these questions, but I'm just outlining how loose the terms are. They almost make it impossible to navigate this whole thing without an immigration attorney.
If anyone has been through the DA process, please let me know how it went and what you did, specially if you file for I-821D. I-821D which is specifically the form for DACA is not mention in the list of document to submit when applying for DA as MAVNI.
