Hi! My husband and I got our case complete with NVC in May of 2019. We are still waiting to get the interview in Juarez. I was wondering who has recently went through this and how long it took you to get the interview? I understand it’s a long wait, but is it over a year?

My husband's NVC was Jan or Feb 2019 and we got the email notification for US Visa Interview Appointment Jan 4th.  It took us about 11-12 months.  His interview date is tomorrow Feb 12th.  I scheduled his biometrics there for yesterday Feb 10th Monday.  He did the medical first thing in the morning - which is just a walk-in basis and no need for appointment, then got the result around noon time, then did his police certificate there, then biometrics at 410pm.  If I were you, if you would schedule the biometrics, to make sure you do it the last appointment so you would have plenty of time to wiggle, coz he got there 5 mins to his appointment.  Today 11th, his rest day and his interview tomorrow is at 745am.  By the way, he only paid $298 for his medical, 'coz I made sure he has all his vaccines and all lab records they would need for his vaccines and immunization requirements.  I just got surprised why they still required him to do the flu shot when we always get it yearly here at Kaiser and his was late September 2019 and he was told that it already expired.  I guess it's business, so you gotta make sure you are on top of your medical 'coz it can get hefty.  Others there paid $400 to $600+ so remember what I told you and thank me later.  If you need lists of vaccines, let me know.

Yes please send me the list of vaccinations required. My husband was told that if he got the vaccines done prior to the medical exam that, yes, it would be less. It would help a lot if we had a list of the vaccines!! I hope everything goes well for you and your husband tomorrow! I wish you the best of luck! Thank you for responding to me!!! Also, I have a question, do they send another form asking him to fill another application out? He filled the i260 immigration application with the nvc, but I was hearing that they ask for the i160 which I looked at it’s basically the same thing! 
 

Please let me know how everything goes tomorrow when you get the chance! I’d love to know how the interview went for you and any other heads up we will need! 
 

thank you so much!!!

A spousal visa is the DS-260.   If he is truly DCF then he would have nothing to do with NVC as that step is skipped.
