Hey

Some people say it takes 7 months to get the K3/CR1..Other say it takes 14 months?

I wonder how long it usually takes, so this is my question:

How long did it take to get the visa?

[ I know that many users have their timeline as their signature...i do not want to know though how long it took til NOA1/NOA2 et cetera.

i just wanna know how long it took to get the visa?)

Thanks :star:

It veries, I have known some to get it within 5mos and others 1yr or more. Don't go by how long it takes others because it can be very disappointing. Just pray that your process doesn't takes too long. Many blessings to you on this journey.

It depends on the service center, how busy or backed up they are and the US embassy conducting the interview. From NOA1 to NOA2 it can take anywhere from 3-12 months, again depending on how backed up they are. Once it's approved, a CR1 can take about 3-6 months at the NVC but if you choose to take the shortcuts it can take about 4-5 weeks. Then it's all up to the embassy. Most will agree to give you an interview the month after your case has been completed at the NVC, others can take longer.

So yes, it varies for the reasons I just gave you and for many others that can happen along the way.

absolutely. It depends on the service center and how far out your consulate is scheduling interviews. Those are the the two variables that you have NO control over.

From the 130 NOA1 to visa in hand, it was 1 year and 8 days. We went K3 thru VSC.


"you fondle my trigger then you blame my gun"

Timeline: 13 month long journey from filing to visa in hand

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 agree with what the others said... But knowing time frames does help. We estimated it would take 9 to 10 months from what we read here so we planned that we would be finished by November 2009. Most of the other people at the interview had been waiting for nearly a year or longer...

Ours:

IR-1 (Vermont Service Center with interview in Warsaw) - 4 months 1 week from the time uscis got the petition to visa in hand... I believe we could have done it even faster because it took a couple weeks to complete the I-864 & DS-230 so we missed the June appointment list and had to wait another few weeks for a July interview. If you follow the guides you'll have the best chance at speeding through the process.

btw... we looked at k3 vs. cr/ir-1 and decided cr/ir-1 was hands down the only way to go...

Hi JuneFirst.

Have you tried visiting the Immigration Timelines link at the top? (It is in between Processing Times and Embassy Info)

Since you have not updated your information to include your location, where your spouse is from, which Service Center has your application, and which stage of the process you are at, it would be difficult for some of the members to offer their insights...am sure you are looking for country-specific information and advice.
