06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

USCIS, NVC and embassy are three entities with no jurisdiction or authority on each other but are part of one single process. Mone will claim no responsibility on the other and will lot even answer to questions. I vaguely remember that long time ago I made couple of posts on how to find when your package is mailed to local embassy (from NVC) and a tentative timeline on when you can expect an interview date.

At a high level NVC sends bulk place ages once (or twice) a month and depending on when your case was completed it can be quick or wait for almost a month to get shipped in local embassy. Once it reaches embassy though they will be prioritized based on NVC approval date but depending on the number of cases pending on their hand, it will be allocated for that month. If too many cases and can't fit in one month, it will be moved for the next month and so on. There is no math or accurate date that works rather bunch of if's and that's all. All you can do is make assumptions and guesses.

Wish I could say something more positive :-(

I saw other's timeline of Case Complete to Interview at the Dhaka Embassy. But the maximum timeframe i found is 63 days more or less. Hoping for the best.
