The freedom from war that gives wings to his heart,
May they reach across the miles and bind our hearts together
against all that we must face in this world.

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.

Our CR1 took 11 agonizing months from filing to interview... then for other reasons, it got delayed .. so all in all - from filing to departure: 1 year 3 months ...

... well, that's our case.
