Hi there, as I’m sure everyone on here is already painfully aware of the process of getting through the investigation process and as Tom Petty says “The waiting is the hardest part” it’s become my mantra at this point.
Was hoping someone could shed some light for me. I accepted a job offer supporting Department of State in Nov 2016 that will take me back to Afghanistan. After a few kickbacks for corrections on my Sf-86p, My company finally successfully submitted everything to DS around Mid Jan 2017.
After radio silence for months, I had my interview Jun 15th. and a follow up Interview July 27th. It is now Sept 2nd. And back to Radio silence.
To this point I’ve done everything that has been asked of me. I continue to remain in contact with my company but of course they know about as much as me. I have a couple of questions.
What in the world could taking so long at this point? My company tells me considering I’ve had my follow up interview it shouldn’t be too much longer.
Does anyone know actually when the clock starts? I was told it was an average of 6-8 months. If so, does that clock start when the package is successfully submitted to DS or when DS pull my credit, etc. looking for some kind of bench mark I can count the days from.
How is one typically notified that it is done and favorable decision has been made. Is it mail, email, phone call? Should I receive a random phone call from my employer?
Any helpful information would be greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance.
