Reading your timeline is quite encouraging, considering we also began the IR-1/CR-1 Visa process around the same time as you. The longest part for us was getting the Thai Police Certificate, where the processing time for my wife was nearly 5 weeks to receive the actual certificate. If I may ask, how were you able to get the Thai Police Certificate and submit all of your Thai documents to the NVC so quickly? It looks like you were in and out of the NVC within 5-6 weeks, which is very impressive! Well done and best of luck to you both!

We can request thai police clearance certificate before Noa2 coming around 4 months after got Noa1 and I also have pay extra for faster service 1500 bath for the police to get the certificate with thin 7days. Actually that service the police will ask you first because regular service it’s take 45 days.

Hi Mmaruyama, Sawatdee krup. Thank you for the response and we're very glad to hear that you've made such excellent & fast progress! My wife indicated that the Royal Thai Police department that she visited only offered the 45 day wait option and that there was no "fast lane" option, which sounds incorrect from your experience - perhaps my wife spoke with the wrong person who did not know any better. :/ We received a response from the NVC indicating that we have been "Documentarily Qualified" and we are now waiting on the Interview Date. It looks like your interview date was today, 7Nov18? If that's true, that's amazingly fast and very encouraging! Did your Interview go well? and were you ultimately approved? Take care and best of luck to you both!

Hi J_P, Great news that your guys passed the documents check by NVC so fast. I hope next week your case transit to the embassy so soon. You can track your case transfer process by your case number here. My interview is doing well. Best .

*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
