“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

The wife received hers the next day, but that is the Consulate in Almaty which seems to be one of the best organized Consulates the US runs based on other's comments here on VJ. Have you check to see if anybody here has a review of the process at your Embassy as this is very specific to how each Consulate/Embassy does business. We can give you estimates, but only someone who has been thru the same location as you can give you more factual information. I can give you the standard USCIS speele of "wait 30 days before calling us." :whistle:

Good luck,

Dave

After The Interview with in one week If the visa application is approved, you must arrange for delivery of your passport with the visa, as well as your Immigrant Visa document packet, directly with the Bank of Abyssinia agent located at the Embassy entrance. Bank of Abyssinia will deliver the passport, visa, and immigrant visa packet to any branch of Bank of Abyssinia in Addis Ababa.

Did you pay Bank of Abyssinia?

This is info from US embassy in Addis website
