Hi Guys,

I have a doubt. what USCIS really mean by I130 Processing time?

Whether its the total time taken for them to grant us the Visa or Its the total time for them to issue the Notice of Approval (NOA2). If latter is the case, then how long on a average it will take to get our Visa Appointment.

Your replies would be much appreciated..

Regards,
Raj

USCIS does NOT issue visas... they only approve petitions... once the approved case file leaves the USCIS they are no longer involved and cannot report on processing times.... So what the USCIS reports are times under there control and for there part of the process

For a CR/IR visa the length of time it takes to get an appointment after the approved file gets sent to NVC depends o lot on the speed of your responses to the data & fee payment requests....

Thanks for your prompt reply.. Can I start gathering documents which is essential for the porcess or should I need to wait until my NOA2 is issued. Is they follow specified formats on which the datas should be submitted to them.

I called the USCIS and asked them this very question... they told me that the 5 month processing time for the I-130 was an average to get your NOA2 approval, but that it is not a guarentee and to call back in 5 months if I had not recieved my NOA2 by then

They HAVE to tell you that, it is on their script... Go with what others here have told you as it is more accurate and truthful. The USCIS website is not updated often and your waiting will be kinda like sittin in the dark, but I would say anywhere between 2 - 4 months for the NOA2 is averge, then you are off to NVC. Yes, you can start to gather your documents as most, are valid for at least 6 months...

Hi guys,

This waiting time is killing...Normally on other days, 6 months will go so fast, but during this process, it seems like we have to wait for 6 months (here it looking like a long duration) uuhhh...Lets hope they process our papers soon so that we can join our loved ones sooner...
