Am asking if interview date to set on December is OK?

Also do they approve and visa ready within 2 weeks or made to wait within 6 months which am hearing some applicants go through?


Setting an interview for December is fine as long as it's not around Christmas or New Years Eve.


It's country and case dependent as to if the visa will be approved and ready within days or months if they fall into extended administrative processing timing or if everything is approved right away.

What I have learned in the process is that all situations and cases are individual, depending on how strong your case is (red flags, evidence etc.) and which Embassy you are going through.


Which country are you in as the applicant, how much evidence did you send, how long before the interview did you do your medical?


Edit: Previous poster beat me to it.

~~moved to US embassy and consulate discussion from process and procedures.  Topic is not about IR1/CR1 procesa but about interviews at specific embassy.~~

December 18 is perfectly fine. Now that you have your interview date set, be sure to go to Akai Clinic to get your medical evaluation done and remember to bring your appointment confirmation page when you go as they will ask to see it. If you don't, they may take longer in returning your medical packet to you, which is what happened to us.
