That is just for the USCIS phase - then NVC has to finish processing your case. So expect between 8-10 months just to get to the interview. If your husband filed DCF, that is a different story.

Tnx for ur reply.

Then most probably, I would received mine by June.

How long do u think would be the waiting period until you get reply from NVC?

You're welcome.

So you have a NOA1 and you're waiting for the NOA2? I assume. After you get the NOA2 from USCIC, you have to call NVC - about a week after the NOA2 start calling to get your case # and IIN # (Invoice Identification Number).

Click here to read a good thread about the IR1/CR1 process, the first two post are very informative.
