Comments : I got to the officer with my wife and he checked my passport, visa and took my fingerprints. He just asked if I am married or if I am going to marry. I clarified my visa category. After typing something in the computer, he called an escort and we were escorted to the office.

There, no questions were asked. I didn't even go to anyone, just sat in waiting area. I got my passport stamped in approximately 10 minutes.

It took way longer to get through screening as we were importing garlic...

I see in Dec fillers that we are probably first and we hope that you all are going to be approved soon. Only thing what we did extra was filling I-129F for K3. I posted that in the thread. Also, I will put description here.

I see your case was completed the same date as ours and also doing the London embassy. I am originally from Czech as well, small world. Fingers crossed we get interview letters very soon. It's been such a long and painful journey. Petra.

That's awesome! World is too little. Congratulations for NVC completion, now we have to wait for consulate interview.

Congrats on your move forward closer guys. We are still waiting just now on the NVC. I noticed you wrote on our timeline and didn’t see it until now. We’re a little delayed as I took a holiday to the us and didn’t expect it to move so quick. So the documents that I was asked for I could not get as they were still in the UK which is probably delayed us 4-6 weeks. (3month holiday extended for 2 weeks) it’s hard being 3500 miles away. I hope your interview goes well and it will be no time before you are both one.

*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
