Do Cr/Ir-1 cases take longer than K-1/2 for final processing at the embassy?

Just wondering if the CRs and IRs take longer to finalize after the interview than the K types. I have been tracking the time it takes for some of the interviewees to have their visas issued (Congratulations to recent visa recipients!!) to try and figure when our visa may come, haha. I bet I am not the first or last to enjoy this way of passing the time, LOL.

I notice that most of the very fast turn around times are for K-1 visas. Is this a known truth or is it just the way things seem to be going recently?

I am only talking about cases that get pink slips and are not waiting for DV or missing docs or something else. Thanks!!

Yeah, I am under CR-1 yet I got my VISA on hand after 27 days. Twenty days for them to verify and print, then 7 days to deliver.Well, I paid Delbros right after my interview anyway.

CR-1/IR-1 as we all know are Immigrant VISA type so maybe that is why it take longer for them to issue it.

I think it depends on how meticulous you are in preparing and providing all the necessary documentation from early on. In general, however, immigrant visas applications take a longer time to leave NVC than K visas. The embassy is only acting on what they get from the NVC in both cases, so that ideally, there should be not much difference as to the final processing. Then again, I would think that since immigrant visas are virtually going to be THE ultimate visa (i.e. green card), they would scrutinize everything as closely as possible.

Just my thoughts :unsure:
