You can view the average time between NOA2 and interview for the last three months by country/consulate on the IR-1/CR-1 statistics page here;

That is of course, assuming that you're applying for that visa type.

Yes, you're right - not too sure why that is. The global average is displayed there, which is 216 days between NOA2 and interview in the past three months.

Failing that, you can view other member's timelines from Albania here;

You'll need to drill into each individual member's timelines to get an idea of how long the average wait is - hope that helps.

Hey Ashley, is your consulate Tirana, Albania? I'm curious.

@Shipping,

you're confusing NVC with USCIS I think.

Go to: http://www.visajourney.com/content/ir1cr1historical

>> check the 3rd step

I tend to use the statistics page rather than that page because the heading of the NVC graph says "I-29Fs" rather than "I-130s", so I don't know how accurate it is. The average time between NOA2 and interview is given in the last column of the stats page I posted for each consulate/country (with the exception of Albania, so it seems).

The pages provide identical data except that one of the pages provides more in depth information. To find Albania on the list you need to broaden the range from 90 days to 180 days or even "ALL TIME".

so it takes a month??????????

I would suggest calling NVC to inquire about your case.

I have e-mailed them 2 times no response....i am going to call them tomorrow. on the website it says there will be a long hold because they are extremely backed up. i hate this. i thought getting the 1-130 approved was the hardest part...it looks like it was the easiest one! :(

You're guaranteed to be on hold for at least 30 minutes once you actually get through so make sure you have time to wait!
