That's pretty much the case. On the VJ timeline option it can give you samples of others going through the CR-/IR-1 application process at the US Embassy in Cairo. You'll see people are getting their visas in hand anywhere from 1-2 weeks up to an average of 5-6 months. I'm really surprised at how efficient they've become with the 1-2 weeks AP/AR turn around. It used to be that 1-2 weeks was unheard of but if you look at the timeline function you'll see that many are getting their visas in that time. In the past the average has been 5-6 months of AP/AR for this Embassy with some cases waiting years. Hopefully this will not be your case.

I hope so too and will do a research on the timeline thing too, thank you so much

Hmm I see how what I said before sounded mean. I actually didn't mean to direct it at you, but I am sorry for insulting you. I intended to say that there are people who plan out their entire weddings in the US before even sending in the fiance petition. They are the ones who never learn. But that sentence didn't make it into my post :bonk: . Anyway pharmacy school test can be taken several times a year. I have a friend in pharmacy school now so I know.

At least Egypt gets their AP's out of the way faster comparing to other Embassies. In Pakistan and Yemen people can wait years just on AP. I know they are doing what they feel they need to for national security purposes but I really wish they were more efficient and didn't keep us hanging in limbo forever.

it's okay for me now, I'm sorry if I overreacted too I just felt offended, I do understand how this AP is very annoying to MENA people but I really hope it will be faster to everyone Inshallah, sending prayers to every couple here, thanks for your answer though

Yeah it does tend to. My husband is a Mohamed. So yay for us.

For the OP - for name checks a wedding party would have no bearing. Be thankful that you're dealing with Cairo now and not 5-6 years ago when everyone had MONTHS of AP. A few days or weeks was almost unheard of back then.

Agree with everyone.....we had a very big wedding party....and we are STILL in AP....since our interview Nov. 18th. The name is important I think....does take longer with a common name.

"The truth will set you free. But first, it will piss you off.
