YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CONGRATULATIONS!! Sarah!

Are you going with the k3 OR CR1??

I'm going CR1 .... K3 would've been about the same time anyway, if they were approving them at Vermont, but they weren't.

CR1 is much cheaper and more practical in the end.

By the way, I've checked the NVC forum and according to other postings on there ... our touches are indeed our files being exited out of USCIS to be transferred to NVC ..... thank God!!!!

Apparently Vermont files take 24-48 hours to arrive and California files take up to a week.

Bye Bye USCIS .... it's been fun .... see you in about 2 years!!! :hehe::hehe:

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!! This is soooo excited..... After 9mos of waiting it is finally our turn!

The ONLY reason I'm pursuing the K3 is because my Husband's country takes about 5 months with interview dates for CR1's. I just don't have the time to wait.

Thanks for the Congrats postings!!! They really lift the spirits of those who are finally moving along.

Wow I just noticed that you are a Vermont filer with a K3 .... that's very very very rare .... like chicken's teeth ha ha

Yup .... we're off! :thumbs:

As you're Vermont too, I wonder if our files will be driven thru the night and get there tomorrow????

Some Vermont filers apparently arrive the next day at NVC according to a couple of threads in the NVC forum

I don't mean to change the subject, but how do you find out about the approximate interview dates for the country?

P.S. Congratulations to you and to Sarah! :D

Personally, I researched the interview date timings in the UK forum .... maybe you should see if there is one in the Germany forum ..... or in the Consulate forum.

I'm sure the German ones will be pretty fast, like the English ones as there doesn't seem to be so many filers from our countries

Yes,

I got both petitions approved at Vermont.

Also, I agree, it could be there by tomorrow.

As for the other question asking how do I know the interview timelines for the country.

For me, I went onto to the African Sub website and looked at the timelines posted by Zenusah. She has timelines posted from waiting for NOA1-NOA2, to time from NVC to interviews being scheduled. I also read the latest threads for those who filed K3's for Nigeria and compared all of their timelines and threads. It's taking on average about 5mos. This may not be the case for other countries though.
