Lagos petition approved for expedite, how long does it take once the case is received for them to schedule interview?

Hi all...I have a question geared more towards other Nigerian applicants who may have had a case expedited. Our case was approved for expedite and it is on it's way as we speak now to the Embassy. I know that Lagos is a very busy Embassy. Does anyone have a clue of whether they allot slots for expedites? Has anyone had their case expedited and have a general timeframe how long the wait will be?

My understanding is that the expedite only applies to the USCIS. Once it hits lagos it is the same normal time frame. Our interview took about 4 months from the time it was approved by USCIS. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news & I hope I am wrong, but i am fairly certain.

London cases which have been expedited seem to have got an interview within 2 weeks of CC, so it shall probably be quicker than it normally is, but not sure by how much


Total time from posting I-130 to VISA in hand 7 months 21 days :D

Thanks for your responses. When I was in the hospital in Lagos the consulate that came and visited me in the hospital did say that my husband should have his interview in August...just wasn't sure exactly when. He was estimating that the case would get to Lagos in two weeks and it will be there in less then a weeks time so wasn't sure if I would then minus a week. but thanks...we were blessed to have the consulate see us together while I was admitted in the hospital.

Our case was expedited from NVC to the Lagos Embassy. The CO who wrote a report for my doctors in the US is the one who looked into approving the request for expedition. He was saying that the interview will proably be in late August but that was based on his timeline that it would take a couple of weeks to receive the case from NVC. NVC mailed the case out the day after approval and the case should be in Lagos tomorrow. I was just curious if anyone knew if the Embassy who does the approvals have an allotted time for expedited cases. Since the case will be in Nigeria in half the time he estimated will that affect his estimation. But thanks for taking the time in writing your response.
