Government Processing Time

The processing time for a license application and supporting documents depends on where the exported material is going. You should allow a minimum of 8-12 weeks to process your application. Delays of three to four months are not uncommon for obtaining licenses for countries listed on the U.S. Department of Commerce's Entities List which may require review by more agencies and a longer processing time.
