These questions are asked a lot and I thought a poll to show percentages would be a neat way to help the newer members out :) The top 3 are k1 , k3, and cr1 so that is why I chose these :)

We got both the I130 and the I129 approved in about 60 days but that really meant nothing since we also waited a good 8 months from the time of the interview to the time the visa was in hand. Seems like a long away nightmare thank God. Living hell it was. I was a basketcase!

we got approved in 7 months but that included 3 weeks of them losing our file between uscis and NVC and 20 days lost for request of change of consulate.... but I am very thankful that it was only 7 but that is the total time between filing and recieving the visa

I tried to vote 3 times and it wouldn't let me.... error messages... but it took us a little over a year to get the K1 Visa. Our RFE wasted a lot of time (an incomplete translation of my husband's divorce papers done by a "professional" translator in Alex) and then we postponed sending the Packet 3 a month or so while I did my income taxes for 07 because I'm self-employed and wanted to make sure they had the info for 07 as well as 06...

AP took about a month.

Seems like forever, but I guess for Egypt it's not that bad.

K1...it took us 6 months from the date of applying to interview and then receiving VISA. That included 3 weeks waiting after interview for them to mail back the VISA (AP).

I would also like to add that I truly had no issues with USCIS when the case was in Cali. I had an amazing officer that was so kind and actually called my mobile phone the day our application was approved and forwarded to NVC. We also had great response time from the embassy in Cairo when we emailed them with questions (typically 3 to 4 business days).

A few other notes (not sure if this is the reason for the prompt process or not) but I had visited Egypt so many times (over 4) by the time we had applied and then another 2 times by the time the application was in Egypt for his interview. They had all that information and ultrasound pics of the twins and doctors letters of my pregnancy/due date. On the ultrasound photos the babies last names reflected my husbands not mine. Again, not sure if any of this mattered or helped but they had all that information/documentation prior to his interview.

Wishing everyone a fast and speedy process. (F)

If you were lucky and got an approval and reunion with your loved one rather quickly; Please refrain from telling people who waited 6+ months just to get out of a service center to "chill out" or to "stop whining" It's insensitive,and unecessary. Once you walk a mile in their shoes you will understand and be heard.

Thanks!

I don't know if I should really respond because our case is unusal. We applied right before the changes happened with the USCIS and NVC and there was the big rush of applications because of the fee increase. Which at the time I didn't know anything about I was just doing what I could for the moment. Over all it took us 6 months to 1 year to get our NOA 2 approvals with USCIS. Then it spent 4 months at the NVC before going on to the embassay in Cairo where it has been sitting since April this year.

It took 3 months for our 129-F to be approved and another two months to the visa. AP took two weeks. We were very lucky, but USCIS was also moving a little faster then in some cases. In fact, some who went through Vermont were approved in a month or less.

*digs up k-1 timeline*

~3 months for an approval stateside, then forwarded on to Egypt

~sent in our paperwork to the embassy in mid June, they messed up, I called up and b*tched them out, and they scheduled him an interview asap, for early July

~5-6 weeks of AP, then the visa

Of course, that was like almost 4 years ago now, so who knows how accurate that would be.
