Hello VisaJourney's - 


I was wondering what is the average wait time between having the NVC say my case is "DOCUMENTARILY QUALIFIED" and the NVC providing an interview date in bogota? My case has been "DOCUMENTARILY QUALIFIED" since Feb 13 and I still haven't received notice of an interview date for the consulate in Bogota and the state.gov site says my case is still at the NVC


Some background: This is a CR-1

@Migma Thank you!!! What is your advise after I receive the date...How Long before the appointment in Bogota shall I do the medical exams?, I don't live there and I want to plan how many days I will have to spend there before the big day to get everything done!

@Beverlyr The medical exams will take about a week to a week and half. Once you get your notice you'll have anywhere between 15-20 days before your interview. Which means you better be prepared to fly out to get all those medical exams done before your interview date as soon as you receive it. You'll need to. You'll be given guides on step and will have to pay for your biometrics online.
