Comments : Let me tell you how the interview went lol
My appointment was at 8:30 at US embassy in Tokyo. (It's way too early...I had to leave my house at 7)
The interview was quick and easy, the interviewer was serious and skeptical black lady.
She asked where my fiance and I met in person, I said the city where he lives.
She goes "really, why there?" I go "that's where he lives." She goes "there sucks, I'm from there, there's nothing lol"
I'm like okaay yeah it's suburban but close to big city...
She obviously love the lively busy atmosphere in Tokyo and hate suburban place.
She goes "so you guys only met three times in person?" I go "yeah but have been talking every single day for 5 years."
She goes "oookay (skeptical)".
Lastly she say "your visa was approved, hopefully you guys can move out from the city".
I laughed (I was like you reaaaally hate there lol)
I arrived around 8:20 and interview was done around 9:30.

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
