Comments : 12-July-2018: I emailed the embassy early in the morning as soon as the case was in ready status. I got an e-mail response later in the afternoon the same day with instructions on scheduling the appointment, visa fee, etc.
18-July-2018: After days of constant checking, there are no appointments available at the embassy at the moment. The waiting continues...
24-July-2018: I was finally able to get a date from the embassy for October 3rd. Odd thing is they only had a few dates in October and everything else was unavailable even in the months after. I will continue checking for something to open up before then as my K1 would have expired by then (even though I was told by the embassy via email that the consulate officer is able to extend it during the interview).
03-Oct-2018: Had the interview with my fiancee and was approved. I'll be posting a full review of the interview.
11-Oct-2018: Visa status went from Immigrant Ready to Non-Immigrant Application Received.
11-Oct-2018: Status went from Application Received to Administrative Processing.
12-Oct-2018: Status changed to Issued. 2 out of 3 visas are issued with the third under administrative processing.
16-Oct-2018: All 3 visas are finally in Issued status.
17-Oct-2018: Received 3 emails with DHL tracking numbers for the 3 visas. The K2 visas had identical tracking numbers.
18-Oct-2018: Documents were picked up by the courier and in transit to their destination. They will be available for pick-up on 19-Oct-2018.

*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
