How accurate is your visa journey timeline? when it says u may be adjudicated between certain dates.... how many people have been approved between the dates they said on your profile? just trying to get an estimate as the days seem to be getting earlier so I'm getting anxious !

fairly accurate but each case is individual. it gives an AVERAGE it is not a GUARANTEE.


from NOA1 to NOA2 for us, it was 175 days and we were approved before even the earliest of the dates ever shown. Others who filed at the same time are still waiting. there are people from last YEAR who are still waiting.

Our estimate kept changing, first it was Dec 30th
Then it changed to Dec 15th

Then maybe 3 months ago it Changed to Nov 26

We got our NOA2 the Nov 7th.

Time Line:



We've known each other online since we were teenagers, almost 2 decades later we started talking a lot more online, and we finally met in person. I am lucky to have a good friend who works for the airline and therefore gives me flight benefits (I pretty much travel for free) Which is why I go back and forth a lot.
