Hey everyone,

I'm trying to gauge some London-specific info on processing times from NVC case complete to the end of the whole process... but it seems that a lot of the threads in this UK regional forum are for K-1!

I don't know if any of these processing times (from NVC onward) are different for K-1 compared to CR-1, but in the event they are, I want my expectations straightened out, if possible :) I've read some posts in which members got their interview date the day after NVC case complete, and others saying that the average is 6 weeks. I also see some interview dates that seem to be scheduled 3+ weeks in advance, and others that are less than a month in advance.

Maybe it's wrong for me to try to ascertain a sense of order in this chaos-ridden process, but let me know what your experiences have been! :lol:
