  1. For 2016: https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2016/01/25/2016-01450/annual-update-of-the-hhs-poverty-guidelines
  2. This news article confirms what we have been suspecting all along. All US consular posts in India were overloaded and now it has been decided to waive few additional categories from interview. https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/nri/visa-and-immigration/us-to-waive-mandatory-interview-for-certain-visas/articleshow/70885207.cms
  3. You should have a valid PCC at the time of interview. Can't use an expired PCC.
  4. So the slowdown last year was only for Electronically Processed Cases. That explains why some other categories got their appointments without any delay during that period. I think for July and August, NVC prioritized FB categories over IR1/IR5 categories to prevent wastage of numerically capped green cards. We should see some slight improvement in September but starting October, I expect NVC to again start scheduling based on DQ dates.
  5. According tot he spreadsheet, maximum Number of days between CC and Interview is 164.
  6. Expect people with CC dates 1st May to 15th May to get ILs next week.
  7. Except FB1 India and other FB categories have retrogressed for september. This implies that NVC will now focus on scheduling IR1/CR1 interview for the month of september
  8. This could imply that most of the F category interviews have been scheduled.
  9. Here is the non-immigrant visa approval stats . F1 approvals increased from 736 in May 2019 to 3936 in June 2019. https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/legal/visa-law0/visa-statistics/nonimmigrant-visa-statistics/monthly-nonimmigrant-visa-issuances.html
