How long do we have to enter the US after visa approval?

Hi all,


I apologize because I am sure this has been asked before, but I want to be certain. We just had our I-130 approved in London after about 30 days of waiting, much quicker than I expected. Now we are wondering if we should delay the process at all. My husband (British citizen) wants to enter the US in June or July of 2019, and I would be going back a little earlier than him. Once he has his interview at the embassy, how long can he wait to leave the UK? I think I remember reading that the Police ACRO is only valid for so long, and also the medical exam? Any advice would be appreciated! Thank you! Hope I posted this in the right place.

You have time to enter the US until the visa expires. This is usually linked to the validity of the medical exam (max. 6 months). 

It's amazing how many questions can be resolved with a 2 minute Google search...
