lagos cr1 interview

Need information on how long is taking us embassy in Lagos to interview cr1 after case is completed at nvc

Once your case is completed at the NVC stage, it takes about a month for NVC to schedule your appointment...... the embassy does not set the interview date for you, NVC does

Have you been scheduled for a date yet?

When was your case completed?

I just sent my IV package yesterday, just wanted information on how long it takes to get interview date in lagos after CC , I know it is different for each embassy.

Okay, you should get a case complete by next week..... NVC just concluded in scheduling October interviews..... You have a Month to wait for another scheduling for a November date

It depends on when your case closes. If it is at the end of the month you may or may not make the next months cut off. I had to wait 6 weeks after the NVC closed our case. We closed at the end of the month and when interviews were scheduled on the 2nd week of the month, we missed the cut off and got scheduled for the next. Winnie is correct the dates for October have been scheduled already. I would guess your wait to be anywhere from 4-6 weeks.
