IR2 Processing Time...what to do?

Hi All,

 

Asking for a relative...since they don't know how to post here.

 

Mom is a US Citizen, filed a petition I-130 (IR2 I assume) for her unmarried daughter in January of 2017. The daughter is in Pakistan.

In June of 2021, the daughter received an email indicating that her interview will be scheduled within a couple of months in the Islamabad embassy.

She has the NVC# and I assume the case was forwarded to the embassy, but there hasn't been any movement since.

 

This seems like an unusually long waiting time, so wanted to see if this is normal, or what actions could be taken to find out the status/progress of the case.

 

Thank you for any help you can provide.

Looking at https://www.visajourney.com/guides/ir1-spouse-visa/

 

A few weeks after you have received your last Notice of Action indicating the approval and forwarding of your I-130 application to the NVC, the NVC will send your relative a packet of forms that you and your relative must fill out before your relative can be given an interview date with a consulate abroad. The packet will likely contain instructions to fill out the DS-261 and DS-260 online forms, by the intending immigrant. 


Did any of the above happen?

 

I suggest you complete a timeline on your profile.

This sounds more like an F1 category.....
