Comments : I did not receive a notice by email or on my USCIS account that the package had been sent to the NVC. NVC had the package almost a month before I received my forwarded mail and was aware they had received the package. Because of many comments in VJ forums that NVC usually forwards the package within a week or so, I called NVC, talked with a representative. He confirmed they had the package and could only say it was "in progress." That afternoon I received an email that the package was being sent to Bogota!! The package was in Bogota for two weeks and I had not heard anything. Because of helpful advice on the VJ Colombian forum, I emailed the embassy. Received an email the next day that they had the package. The following day, the instructions were sent to my fiancee!! LESSONS LEARNED. Follow up if you are not receiving timely notices! Following both followups by me, the package immediately continued on its journey.

10/23 Interview: The visa was not denied. Passport and all docs keep by embassy and a second person affidavit of support was required. Contested this through a local (N.C.) immigration attorney who also had a State Representative intervene.
11/22: Visa granted without further affidavit of support or other documentation required.
The second person affidavit of support was asked for as my prior year's W.2 and business income was very low but my social security itself was more than the minimum income required. I had included an additional prior two years tax returns with explanation why 2017 taxable income low and why it would not be repeated in subsequent years. This information was ignored by interviewer. The local immigration attorney was recommended by a legitimate local immigration support group. I may not have been able to get the approval without their help. From my point of view, it was well worth the money spent.

*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.
