Email received waiting for INTERVIEW LETTER (4+ MONTHS)

The National Visa Center (NVC) received all of the fees, forms, and documents that are required prior to attending an immigrant visa interview at a U.S. Embassy/Consulate General overseas.
 

NVC will work with the U.S. Embassy/Consulate General in ISLAMABAD, PKST to schedule an interview appointment for you. Once we have confirmed an interview date, we will send a notice to you, your petitioner and attorney (if applicable).

Anyone got interview letter? 
How long will it take?

You know embassies have been closed since around mid March and no reopening date is yet set? They won’t schedule interviews until they are open, and even then probably not for your case until It is clear the EO banning such visas won’t be extended.

Correct the embassies are closed, but i don't think the EO effected the spouse visa for Green card holder and Citizen.

in my case i am a green card holder and applied for my wife in Nov 2017.

She isn't going to get an appointment until the consulates reopen and if she is not subject to the EO and extensions thereof.

Sorry.... F2A is subject to the EO. For family based categories, only spouses and children under 21 of citizens are exempt.

Hopefully it won’t be extended. We’ll find out soon,

Trump already said he's going to extend it. So all F2A petitioners will have to wait until after the November elections to boot this President for this to be lifted. Honestly, our family members are "probably" better off right now where they currently resides.

When did he announce that?  Do you have a link by chance?

 

This sucks, I swear it'll be a year at least before we get our interview, between the suspensions and Covid.  😭

You can find the links in this thread by @SusieQQQ 

And lets hope the EO dont get extended.
