All, I spoke to Raymond, MT POE about my client from yesterday, this seems to be another matter. There were inexperienced Officers working and so my client will go back :(.
The good news, is that the Officer I spoke to confirmed that they are accepting the I-192 applications, although they have very limited staff to do this, and to call ahead instead of assuming that experienced personal will be there to assist people.
The Officer did advise that Head Office is down to "skeleton" staffing, and processing of I-192 is going to be delayed up to 2-3 months longer then normal. So I will be advising clients that it may take up to 15 months for a regular waiver at this time.
So, I recommend to anyone, start your waiver now, as the backlog will only get worse as time goes by.
