  1. Hi! NVC confirmed that received my case 28 days ago. My case wasn’t put into the system yet. Is that taking that long nowadays? 4 weeks and counting... How long does it usually take to get the case number? After that, how long should I expect to have my interview scheduled considering that I don’t get a checklist?

    How long?

    Hi everyone! I’m sure this question is one of the most popular on this website but I wanted to get responses from people who have gone through the K-1 visa process. I’ve heard it can take anywhere from 4-9 months. How long did the process take you in total?
  3. I'm so sorry if this has already been answered or if this is posted in the wrong area (new-ish user, sorry). But I want to be sure I understand the process for my fiancé as he goes to the embassy for his interview. We received our NOA-2 on July 20, 2017. From my understanding, we have to wait for the information to be sent to the embassy, but we can start the process--setting up medical exams, paying fees, setting an interview, etc.--once we know the embassy has it, and we don't have to wait until we get the notice in the Ukrainian mail. Is this correct? My understanding of the order of things is: - NVS sends application off to embassy - We can call the embassy and ask after several weeks if they have received it - We submit DS-160 through the embassy's website - We schedule a medical interview; he attends - We pay the $265 visa application fee through Bank Aval, & apply for passport delivery (not exactly sure what that is) - We call and make an appointment for the official interview - We bring all necessary documents and, hopefully, get the K1 stamp within a week - He flies here, we marry, and start all the other paperwork while living happily ever after Is my understanding correct? I know questions of this nature have been posted before, but most I found were pretty old or unclear. Thanks for your help, understanding, patience, and community! -AM&AK
  4. Hello! I checked USCIS Processing times and I noticed that my I-130 will take 5 to 7 months, but my I-485 is 7 to 25 months. Does that mean that I can get my green card in the next 7 months? or is the longer timing the one that will apply?
  5. Hello! My fiancé and I are currently waiting while our petition is in the process of being approved (looks like it’ll be in May 2018). Is it too soon to go ahead and get all the financial information from our sponsor? Or should we wait closer to when it’ll get approved? We’re wanting to just have all the paperwork ready to send off once we get notified of approval. Thank you!
  6. I have already submitted the DS-260 form- marked COMPLETED. Do I need to make any payment (fees) for DS-260 form if filing in London - or are next payments at the Medical and final Interview? Also questions on timing: i) Notification of readiness for interview - do I need to receive a green light from DS-260 before going ahead? ii) Any current guidelines on expected timeline to book the final visa interview in London? Thanks
