Is the 1st step (NOA2) the longest?

So.....I received notification this morning when I checked our 'status' on USCISs website that our I129F K1 Petition was approved on the 17th.....96 days....😊

 

Does anyone out there know if the next steps towards the actual interview will be 'shorter' in length?, or will it take another 3+ months? My SO resides in Cuba...me in Atlanta, GA

 

We are soooo hoping to be together for the holidays....🤨

For Cuba it will likely take longer

Hi,

 

Thanks for responding/feedback....

 

I actually just looked at similar timelines for Cuba (new to this site and keep forgetting the 'timeline resources' )....

 

Looking at other Cuba timelines now...it looks like similar 'journey' completion appear to be around 8-10 months...More or less.

 

USCIS's official website says that the estimated processing times for K1 approvals from the California Service Center is 5--7.5 months.....Our approval arrived in a little over 3 months.....so....seems like we're ahead of schedule based on the governments' schedule.

All we can do is remain hopeful......

 

Make a great day!

Scheduling interviews for Cubans is a nightmare

When I-129F NOA1 to NOA2 was usually taking over 5 months, than that was usually the longest part pre-visa issuance unless you got extensive post-interview administrative processing or were at an embassy/consulate where it tended to take a very long time to get interviews. But with somewhat faster processing this year, there's probably more time after NOA2 than before it for most people; current VJ average is 113 days from NOA2 to interview (30 to NVC received, 20 NVC received to in transit, 5 from in transit to ready at embassy consulate, 58 from arrival at embassy/consulate to interview). Most reports say Cuba will take longer than most.
