We are, and I know there are some others as well.

Our Case Complete at NVC was November 27th, 2018.  I talked to NVC two days ago, and as of that day we were still not scheduled yet.  And pretty soon they will be done scheduling for March 2019 interviews.

So I am hoping we will be in the next batch scheduled for April 2019 :(  


Best of luck to us all!

Hi All,


Is anyone who has a CC for their CR-1 case awaiting an interview at the US embassy in Cairo? My case closed over two months ago and we have still not heard anything about our interview. Anyone going through this?

NVC does not schedule interviews like they should, they do not do the oldest cases first.


I think they just grab one from a pile and give them interview date.


Someone got their interview after 5 days from getting case completion just in Jan 2019.


Someone with your same case completion date has already got their interview, and then you have people like @Allison and Ahmedwho have been waiting since end of November.


Good luck for all who are still waiting.
