Embassy in Tokyo: When the interview date will be assigned?

I'm just wondering at which point my wife's interview date at US Embassy in Tokyo will be assigned. Is it when our case is completed at NVC and sent to Japan?

Also is there enough time between 'case complete' to interview? She wants to travel for 3 weeks.

Thanks!

Once the case is complete in NVC then they will schedule the appointment date, usually its 1-3 months waiting time.

Hi, I'm in the same boat as you. I just called the NVC today, and they said our next step was an interview. I asked how to schedule my husband (Japanese) an interview, and they said something about May being full. I asked if he would get an interview in June and they said "maybe." Looks like there is indeed a 1-3 month wait just to get an interview.

CR-1s are usually valid for six months; it depends on when your medical was done.
