Event Description
Review Date : January 18, 2019
Embassy Review : My interview was scheduled for 8:15 am and we arrived at 7:45 am. Interviews are now in the new building which is in the side street behind the former main building facing the large street. I had written previously and confirmed that I can have my fiancee with me. The guard outside took our passports and checked them. Then we went through and went into the immigration visa line. This took a while, around an hour, so if its winter, dress warm. After, we went inside and were given a number. There were 20 tickets before us. We waited about 2 hours and then a russian employee took my main documents, she was VERY nice. Super polite and even photocopied my passport for me when i realized i didnt have a copy. Then I sat back down and waited 20 more minutes and was called to have my interview. The consular officer was very nice, asked me about 2 questions, how we met and when the relationship started, was polite, in a good mood. He asked my fiance a question about his kids and asked a confirming question concerning our meeting story. Then he looked over my fiancees financial documents and said our visa is approved.
Overall it was a very pleasant experience
Rating : Very Good

Congratulations! We are waiting for our NVC processing. Please, did the embassy require any original documents or wet signatures for the I-134?

we had all the original documents with wet signatures, but as far as i know they also accept scans

Congrats guys! You give hope. I am in a similar situation that you were in before the interview and can use some guidance. I received an email from the embassy on January 22nd stating that my fiance can now schedule an interview. This email contained a word document (at least thats what it looked like) with links and steps to take. She did not recieve anything from teh embassy herself (packet 3 or other) and to get an interview she has to verify that she got documents. How did you guys do this? did you schedule an interview right as you got that email? did your fiance receive anything from the Embassy prior to scheduling an interview? Any guidance you can provide would greatly ease my anxiety over this. Thank you in advance

Once the status on the NVC site says "Ready" you can schedule the interview. They wont open the calendar until the documents are in the embassy

*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.
