My husband and I filed in July of 2004 and have just recently, May of 07, recieved our apponitment for July 6 2007! We were told in the beginning it would be only a year or less of a wait untill we would recieve an appointment in Juarez. And each time we contacted Juarez for an update as to when we would recieve an appointment they told us 3-5 months. Well I e-mailed them at least twice and they always said 3-5 months like it is the standard response! So be prepared for a bit of a wait! You are not done, but be glad we qualify for the infopass waiver adjudication program and can hopefully get our I-601 packets approved and processed the same day! Versus the poor couples before this program started in april 07 who are still wiating for their approval! My biggest fear was that we would have to wait outside of the counrty for 6 months to a year but now with this new program, hopefully we will not! So count that as one blessing and hang in there! Just remember to get a WELL prepared I-601 and DOCUMENT everything!

My case has taken as long as yours? I've seen people who's case flys and ours is always pending. I am so excited and nervous since our appt in Ciudad Juarez is Aug 10th. Where did you get the infor for the infopass waiver adjudication program?

K3 nonimmigrant spousal visa appointments take 4-6 months. That's if the petitioner filed the I-129F after the I-130.

CRI/IRI immigrant spousal visa appointments take minimum one year.

Once the Consulate received our K3 it was only a month to have the interview. The whole process from filing our first documents with USCIS to interview was 6 months for the K3. I called the consulate when they first received our papers from the NVC and they told me that K visas were usually about 1 month for the interview when they receive from NVC but CR1 take much longer to get the interview, up to a year.

Does anyone have an idea why that would be?

I keep seeing recomendations here to just go with a 1-130 CR-1 Visa, so much better and all. Dont bother doubling down with the I-129 and extra money for it. Approval times are about the same. But this 1 year vs 1 month wait for an appointment is kind of a big deal, no?

I am sending in my 864 and her 3032 this week to NVC and then it gets sent on to the embassy. I thought I was done. Silly me :-P

Seems like I could get an I-129 approved in a couple months and an appointment in a month after that? Long before waiting my year for a CR-1 interview?

I have seen the same comments that the CR1 is as fast as the K3 but I dont agree, at least with Mexico. My wife is already here with me a month ago and I filed my first petition just a few days before you did. Yes you save a few bucks with CR1 but getting my wife here ASAP was my goal.

It seems the processing and work involved in a CR1 takes longer since it results in a green card. But who knows? CDJ has a tremendous backlog so if your goal is to get her to the US as fast as possible, K3 is the way to go. If you want to avoid additional fees and be finished after the visa interview, CR1 is the way to go, but know that you will be waiting a lot longer for an interview date.
