this is the general reply everyone gets when they ask about the status of their application.. additional background checks does not mean that you are in security screening.. security screening is a long process and few people waited for more than 20 months as well. but normally it takes somewhere between 6 to 12 months in security screening. order GCMS notes to see if you are in security screening or not.. but generally LVO is very slow and takes a lot of time to process applications
