    Met and later married in India, filed for CR-1 in 2016. Visa approved on August 16th 2017! Against all odds (and tons of massive maddening red flags), we have made it! What a journey and the best part is yet to begun!

  1. Same here! Will try to make an info pass appointment and see how we can make this happen! 😬
  2. I second this. We have been waiting for the interview to be scheduled since April 2020. His GC extension letter has March 2021 expiration, so what happens after that? No way to leave the country? Any help is immensely appreciated.
  3. We filed last September and as of April 2020, our case is listed as “case is ready to be scheduled for an interview”. Not sure if being scheduled for interview vs. no interview is a bad thing, but either way we sent in a lot of documents and are ready for the interview. Any guesses on how much longer we all have to wait without hearing any updates? My Hubby’s extension letter will expire March 2021 I believe. I hope it won’t take that long to hear back from the USCIS. Sending everyone waiting much needed patience and hoping y’all receive some good news soon. 🙏🏽
  4. Welcome back! ☺️ This sounds promising. Thank you so much! Hope Delhi officials are as efficient as the ones at Mumbai! 😅 Take care!
  5. Awww - it is ok, all the feelings that we experience come with the territory of this journey. Just know that your happy ending will find you, sooner or later. Keeping my fingers crossed for you guys! 🤗
  6. Ours took 10 days. You might get it really soon (hopefully today!). Hang in there! 🙏
  7. I did not think it was an annoying question at all. My husband's I-797 also has him listed as the beneficiary/petitioner. It also made me think for a bit, but then I concluded that he surely was both. 😅 All the best! 🙏
  8. Thank you again. The problem is not the flight/check in part per se -- it is the Customs Authorities (in Delhi Airport) that grant the clearance to pass, is what happens to worry me. So booking a direct flight won't matter if he cannot convince the Delhi Customs Authorities that the I-797 is an official document. He won't even be able to get to the gate where his plane is. I saw the processing times can be 18 months...but let us see what happens in a few months. Wishing you a speedy and safe return.
  9. Thank you so much for the reply and I am very sorry to hear about your Dad. Hope all is well with him now. 🙏 He will fly with Emirates via Dubai, I checked with Emirates and know that they accept the I-797 accompanied with an expired GC and valid passport, but what we worry about is the check in process via Delhi. The Indian customs officers while boarding to be exact. What if one refuses to accept this...then what? 🥺
  10. What did you end up doing? My husband is planning on going to India for a few weeks (with Emirates) and reading all these stories made us nervous. We just got the I-797 NOA and his GC expired a few days ago. The I-751 was received 2 days before his GC expired. My gut says not to travel, but with long waits, I feel badly for him.
  11. I know this is old, but was wondering if you traveled to India and back with your I-797? Thanks.
  12. Just got our I-797 NOA, it took 10 days for us. Feeling awesome! Side note - hubby wants to travel, but I am a bit nervous to be honest. I am not sure how India deals with the expired GC and having the NOA presented while he is entering and leaving India. Another thing, the choice of NOA paper used leaves something to be desired. The ink is fading at the most important part, which is the extension of his GC for another 18 months. The paper is gray like. I can totally see some countries assuming this might be a fake (copy etc.)! 🙄 Still, we are closer to his ROC today than we were yesterday! 🥰
  13. I sent our CR1 in a box and via USPS...I think it weighed as much as a new born baby! 😅 This time around is different for us and luckily, 16+ ounces did the trick. Now we wait...🙏 Best of luck to you!
  14. Wow, it has been 2 years already? Time sure flies! Just finished our paperwork and heading to the post office. This time our stuff fit in a large envelope, which is shy of 17 ounces vs the massive box I sent for the CR-1! 🤣 Wishing everyone the best! 🥳
