Purpose: The standard credentials review processing time of your order is 10 weeks. The Expedited Review Service guarantees that your VisaScreen® order will be reviewed within 5 business days after we receive all your documents.
Eligibility: The Expedited Review Service can only be placed if you have an active VisaScreen® order and all documents required for the review are received, entered and imaged.
Note: The expedited review does not guarantee that your VisaScreen® certification will be approved. It only ensures that the order will be reviewed within 5 business days after your documents are received, entered and imaged. Upon review of your documents, if we determine that further information is necessary, your review will not restart until the required documentation has been submitted.
