Yes dear it’s true. I wish you all the best as well. May God be all of our helper. I followed you so we can stay in touch occasionally, and I’ll definitely be sure to update my timeline 😊, I saw that they have withdrawn the $535 filing fee just yesterday, hopefully NOA1 will come any day from now.

No one can say for sure when you will see your different timeline notifications. NOA1 is 2-4 weeks typically. NOA2 is ALL OVER the map and we really can't say. I have included some tools to use to figure your expected timeline. Have fun with it. I am sure there are more but here are 3.

 

Tool Tip 1: Use the tools here in VJ to answer "when I am going to get etc. etc." question. Near your picture there is a link for your timeline. Select it and once you're on the next page near your picture  you will see "follow similar timelines" and it will populate 12 other couples who are near your dates. Scroll down and you will see a "spreadsheet" style page showing all the variables for measurement for when others are getting the same notice of approval or action.  Try it. It really works!

 

I followed those that were in my group to give me an idea where they were in processing so I could judge if I was ahead or behind.  It's pretty accurate, maybe within a day or so.

 

If you choose to follow those twelve members then you will get an email every time their status updates.

 

Tool Tip 2:  You can see the most recent approvals (of people who posted here and updated their timelines) here https://www.visajourney.com/timeline/monthly_filers.php

 

Tool Tip 3:  If you select your flag in your profile it's going to open up to a page with lots of information. In the middle upper part of the page you are going to see "Quick Links" then in the list select "Embassy Review" and you will be taken to a page where you can read what others have experienced at your Embassy and you can add your review. Once it is complete then cut and paste the URL for your review into this thread to share with everyone. This keeps the thread clean and tidy, and not only those who are here to see it but others who may not see this thread but would see your experience. A good interview will point out some of the hiccups that you experienced along the way and the highlights of your experience. These are very helpful. I am looking forward to your review and thanks for sharing.

 

I hope these will be helpful to you and others while you await your visa adjudication.
