As expected, this next batch of referrals is once again for just over two weeks worth of LIDs, April 26 through May 13. Not unexpected but still disappointing. They really need to pick up the pace. It does seem clear that China is intentially slowing down the process but for what reason I don't know. There's lots of speculation about this but no one really knows. I just received a message from my agency a few days ago estimating my referral for June or July but I don't see how that is possible.
In three days, it will be four months since my LID in what started out as a six to seven month wait and is now looking more like a 12-14 month wait. This is crazy.
