DS 2019 form

Posted by cardioversion @guneetsidhu, Sep 18, 2020

Hi,
Does anyone have an idea about how much time it takes for the issuance of the DS 2019 form after completing all the formalities?. I got a message on 1st September on the legal cell web portal stating that J-1 with the Case Manager for DS-2019 issuance. So I was wondering when can I expect my DS because till Monday it will be already 20 days??.

anyone??

thank you so much. Actually my start date was 26 October and the embassy wait time is also 2-3 weeks these days. So i was a bit apprehensive.

No worries. You can apply for an emergency appointment with the embassy. You can read the guidelines for emergency visa appointment on their web page and you might be eligible for it. That will cut down the time to just a week, so don't worry much about that.

Hi I have to apply for the DS 2019 form. My start date is next January but I have not contacted for DS yet. could you tell the email address to contact for its release? Do you also know other possibility? thank you so much !!!

Hi, you will be contacted via email by HR. They will give you a link to Fn portal, where you will answer questionaires and upload your documents. I guess because your start date is quite late, they prioritize others. Be calm and wait.

you will get your DS before 6-7 weeks of your start. so calculate it from your start sate. don't expect before that. You should expect your DS mid November
