Between I-130 approval and scheduling for Medical/Visa, how long?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello ...

I am American and getting ready to file for I-130 as IR-1.

I want to time things right so:

1- How long, roughly, does the I-130 approval takes?

In another word, if I file today, when should I expect final approval?

2- How long between the I-130 approval and scheduling for her medical/Visa interview will she be allowed to have? I understand that she should take my 2016 tax return with her, which comes in April, so that's why questioning...

Thanks in advance!

Hello ...

I am American and getting ready to file for I-130 as IR-1.

I want to time things right so:

1- How long, roughly, does the I-130 approval takes? UP TO 5 months, depends on which service center your petition will be at. USCIS does post approximate timelines for the I-130 on their website. Then you have another process at NVC before finally reaching the embassy.

In another word, if I file today, when should I expect final approval?

2- How long between the I-130 approval and scheduling for her medical/Visa interview will she be allowed to have? I understand that she should take my 2016 tax return with her, which comes in April, so that's why questioning... The complete process can take between 9-12 months. No two cases process the same, how fast or slow yours will process is an unknown.

Thanks in advance!

Here is a helpful link or two.

Thanks!

I checked both links and there was no mentioning of how long?

Incase, I intend to go to the US embassy in Manila...

As I posted to your earlier post - there isn't a time frame for YOUR case, each application process differently depending on the requirements, etc for the applicant. 9-12 months.

For the egov link you have to select which service center (CSC, VSC or ), currently the dates are 5 months on the I-130 spousal petition.

As for the other link that is for the Immigrate visa process so you have an understanding of what comes next...
