Consulate specific and is based on how busy the consulate is at the time.  Your submission gets put in the queue along with everyone else's and they try to get to it as quickly as they can

@payxibka answer is spot on. I can add that the PI is very good about getting the paperwork sorted out rather quickly. Average time is 2-3 weeks after receipt. Keep checking CEAC for updates. When your status changes from immigrant to non-immigrant you visa will be issued shortly there after.

 

This is a topic that is talked about all the time over in the sub-forum for the PI. Best place to get answers for specific questions pertaining to USEM and the process.

Because that is how it works.   The interview is performed by the immigrant Visa unit but the k1 is technically a nonimmigrant Visa

When you are at ceac.state.gov and you search for your status the first box has the "immigrant" and "non-immigrant" selections in a drop down box. You select one and see "what's behind curtain No. 1" and if it gets you an answer to what your status is then that is your immigrant or non-immigrant answer. When you can no longer get a status on immigrant but you can using non-immigrant then your status has changed and that's when you will know that you are close to having your visa. No, I don't know how long that will take and no one really does. Just have to have more patience.

 

As a K1, when checking your case online at CEAC.state.gov you have to select "immigrant visa" as it is treated like as such even though it is a "non-immigrant visa".

 

Technically the K-1 is a non-immigrant visa but it is treated like an immigrant visa because of the AOS. It is kind of a ba$tard. Non-immigrant treated like an immigrant. Other non-immigrant visas do not usually end up with green cards!  The K-1 on its own is a single entry, short time limit visa that expires 90 days after POE. That is why it is a non-immigrant visa treated like an immigrant visa.

@Dia pe I sent an email to follow up. I sent my Cenomar last 18th. Manila consular office replied, just now saying that they received the documentation and referred the case to a Consular officer. Hopefully we will have a progress very soon. I am just getting anxious every single day. Good luck to you as well.

We didnt receive any email saying they received our missing document. They just need the tax transcript. But my case was updated today, but still on administrative processing

It was my option to send an email because had to make sure that they receive it because my passport is in there, and it is an important thing for us. I am on administrative processing as well, with updated case today (Feb 25). I am hoping it will make progress in the next few days.  I hope with you too.
