Hi! Do you guys do a consular processing? Usually you have to interview and get an RFE sent to you. Why was your processing so short? Thank you in advance.
Licorne on 2019-01-25 said:
My husband is more knowledgeable in this subject but my understanding of the process is that: An RFE is sent only if more evidence in required for the application to be approved. The interview is scheduled after the NOA2. The consulate will need to contact my husband for an interview now that our application has been approved. Looking at similar timelines, I feel that our processing time is similar to others in our scenario who applied around the same time. We did not get an RFE, which definitely hastened the process--- but on average our processing time seemed to only be about 10 days shorter give or take than others with similar timelines the last I checked.

By submitting your documents on different dates do you think they will review each at a different time or all together since it’s about 2-3weeks to review submitted documents by the date submitted

*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.
