Our CR-1 VisaJourney took 7 months and 10 days from mailed I-130 Petition to the wife landing at Chicago POE...

I think you'll find the quickest was about 5 months and I'd be surprised if anyone with a straight forward case is taking longer than 9 or 10 months.

In most cases it takes 5-6 months just to get the 1-130 approved..add another 4-5 to get the visa completed...from 1-130 initial application to visa in hand for us was 11 months..give or take mistakes made, in our case NVC made 3..so I don't know where you get the 5 month thing. :whistle:

It also depends what country the foreign fiance will interview in...Montreal consulate in Canada is really backed up, so NVC completion to interview is taking 4-5 months right now.

Which is why everyone else replying with their timelines is from the same country (Philippines) as the sub-forum where the question was posted.

I-130 was sent May 8, 2009 and was approved on August 17,2009== 3+ months for the petition approval, 2months at NVC due to RFE, consulate interview was 1 month after NVC completion.
