How Long Does It Take?

It normally takes 6-8 weeks from the time an application is received until a LOMA or LOMR-F is issued.  Applications are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Incomplete applications are not processed.  If Information is missing from the application, the processing is put on hold and the applicant is provided a written notice of what information is missing.  When the missing data is submitted, the application is re-entered at the end of the line of applications awaiting review.
