Does anyone know, typically how long it takes for the embassy to schedule an interview after they received all the documents?
They sent me an email requesting 2 more passport pictures of me, i did and haven't heard since.

your the one will do the scheduling...first wait for your case# then if you have it...pay the visa fee..then within 24hrs after paying the fee...proceed to scheduling thru phone or web...i will prepare web...why? because the operator will give you hardtime by asking if you received a letter from nvc..which is a bs lol

(in the us embassy philippines interview for K1 visa it's already on the 3rd wk of sep. so i'm not sure about your consulate...maybe try asking someone with same consulate w/yours)

follow this step when setting up account to sched online.

•Click Schedule Appointment >Step 1 Choose what visa type > Step 2 Choose "Manila" for the post where you would like to have your interview appointment >
•Step 3 Choose K1 Visa >

Actually, there is no option for Albanian beneficiaries to schedule an appointment online. The Consular schedules the interview after required documents are given. This is why it is best to ask embassy specific questions within the regional forum or check the link at top that says 'Embassy Info'. The embassies do not all operate by a standard. Some allow the beneficiary to schedule, and some schedule for you. You can find information concerning the interview at the links below.

According to your embassy's instructions:

Processing of the Visa

Upon receipt, each application will be reviewed by our staff. If the documentation is
complete, Consular Section, U.S. Embassy, Tirana will schedule an appointment once an
interview date is available and notify the petitioner or the beneficiary with an appointment
letter. The appointment letter may be sent by e-mail, regular mail, or courier.

If the petitioner or beneficiary hasn't received any notification of the interview, it could be due to an immediate date not being available. I would contact the embassy if I hadn't heard anything after 2 weeks of submitting the documents.

For me it took about 1 month but it depends how close to the scheduling dates you are and how soon they receive the documents that nvc has in tirana...don't worry everything is going to be fine lol now that I'm with my husband I feel like all this months went by so fast hahaha
