Hello, I was under impression that L work permit processing times typically around 6-8 weeks and do not exceed 2 months. Now the agency is telling me that due to some "crackdown" it is now 4 months.

Is this really based on any actual change in the way how these permits are processed? I had L permit back in 2006 and it took only 6 weeks to get it... what did change between now and 2006?

I hold a non-EU resident (US passport)

Re: current L permit processing times (VD)

2 to 3 months is considered normal right now. If you have been here on an L permit before this may speed things up a bit.

I have also applied for my L Work Permit on Nov'10. It is now 10 weeks. I haven't received any response. My company is saying that because of holiday seasons, the immigration was closed and that is why it is getting delayed. Now the processing time they mentioned is 10-12 weeks.
