Calling all Norfolk VA interviewees.

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My Impatience seems to grow by the hour.

How long does Norfolk normally take to go from recommended for approval at interview to Oath ceremony letter mailed?

It is this uncertainty period that is the irritant, waiting for online status to change.

I also went to Norfolk USCIS office for my interview. How long dis you wait for your interview to be scheduled after the biometrics? And can you please share about your experience? I am applying based on the 3 year rule. Thank you

Do you know I have completely focused on going forward I have not really been keeping record of what has passed.

Luckily others have been keeping record for me. I have taken this from the N-400 April 2015 Filers thread.
