  1. The only advice and input is to wait out the 120 days per their correspondence. Most files are taking between 45-90 days to be transferred from USCIS to NVC. You can try inquiring with the NVC on a weekly basis to see if it has been received. This will give you an estimate of when it was received. Based off that estimate, you will get an idea of when the case number is going to be created and transferred to your fiancée’s local embassy. I inquired every week until I received the email that “your case has recently been received”. That is the best thing you can do at this time. There is no fast track to this since they are having to physically mail these cases from CSC to the NVC, and they are mailed in batches.
  2. Yes, I know a few people who are having this issue too. We were able to book right away, so I’m unsure of why they are suddenly having this issue. Hopefully, by the time your case is ready you won’t have to worry about that.
  3. My fiancé had his interview today. I went with him. The DR consulate encourages (while not required) the sponsor to be there. A guy at a window today was asked why his fiancé was not in attendance. He answered truthfully, “she couldn’t make it because she was unable to take time off of work”. While his visa was ultimately approved, I noticed that he was asking him more of the hard hitting questions, like “how much money does she make a year?” “What side of the bed does she sleep on?” “How many years has she worked at her current job?” Followed by several more questions. He was at the window for an extended amount of time, while my fiancé was asked 3 extremely easy questions and I was asked about the city I am from and if I’ve ever been married and we were out of there in 3 minutes. I think this is more consulate specific than a general synopsis.
  4. Good morning,

    I just wanted to say thank you for the information you gave me last week. I am pleased to say that my case now says that it is "in transit" to the Embassy. I did want to know if you could tell me about how long does it take for the case to get there and how long does it take to get to the "ready" phase. Again, thank you. Your information has been on point.

      Hi Jamie, 

      Once again you were right. My case moved to ready today and when I went in to schedule the interview, I received a message that said "Your request to schedule an appointment has been received and will be reviewed. You will receive an email once your request is approved". Is this a normal response? We thought we would automatically be able to schedule once paid the DS-160 fee. Please advise. Thanks.

      Hey, I’m not sure. I haven’t gotten that far, yet. It would do you some good to update your timeline and use the tool that allows you to see others who have a similar timeline to yours. They may be able to advise you further.

      Oh okay. Thanks.

  5. Sorry, I don’t know anything outside of k1 visa. I’m just only aware of what is currently happening for k1 visas. If you’re still waiting, it probably means that they’re not taking any visas in your category at this time.
  6. I wouldn’t rely on the embassy emailing you. Just check if it’s in transit. Once it says ready, take the next steps.
  7. Not sure, who you are inquiring with, but if your case is still at NVC it should be in transit by next week, as next week is a week that they will be mailing cases to the embassy. Once your case is at the embassy, then you can pay the DS-160 fee and book your interview. Next week on Tuesday/Wednesday check to see if your case is in transit. When it says ready, you will be able to take the next steps to book the interview.
  8. Interesting. NVC should update their website if that’s the case because this is what it says
  9. You have 6 months to enter the country after your visa is issued. You can book your interview for May and enter the country immediately after your brothers wedding. I would also consider what is more important to me as well.
  10. Was your case approved on November 1st or received on November 1st? They will automatically extend the approval date so there is no need to worry.
