When the lady was asking me I told her all of my travels were for pleasure due to the fact that I received airline benefits. I just had to confirm that with her for each trip.So how much more do they need than, “I’m a pilot/flight attendant/banker(whatever) and I was there for my job”? -ignorant questioner....I don’t remember the answers I gave.
I had been to Colombia and a few other South American countries that they definitely asked but I don’t remember exact responses..
620 days isn't that bad, I've read about people with 6 years waiting for a clearance.Found this.. see page 6.
So 90% of secret clearances are processed in an average of 130 days, but the total average is 179 days. that means the "lowest 10 percent" average 620 days? Pretty remarkable.
