Hi @NunoSantos. I'm an EB-3 myself, doing consular processing.


If you are at the i-140 stage, then that means you are already done with the DOL + PERM, which is where most of the time is taken up. I hope you submitted the i-140 with the expedited option, it costs more, but you will get a reply within 14 days, if not, then it can take anywhere from 6 to 9 months, depending on the USCIS office. Ask for your i-140 receipt number, that way you can track it online at USCIS, this will tell you the status.


After USCIS, then comes the DOS (NVC), which I'm assuming you'll still be in Portugal and will be doing Consular Processing. It's hard to predict estimates/times, but you can expect about 4-5 months from the time USCIS transfer your case, to when NVC completes it.

Thanks... i'm goig to ask for the i-140 receipt number...


My future Employer is waiting for me in April 2019. I'm assuming that my interview will bem on February. (in PARIS) Portugal embassy doesn't have this "imigration office".


Never heard about "visasolutions"... (i decided to take a shot on them)  they are taking care of all documentation and forms... I think i'll never have to worry about "papers and forms"
