congratulations did you expedite at NVC

Good news! Did you ask for an earlier interview date at all or if the NVC could expedite it?
Bird&bear on 2019-12-12 said:
@Gemigemi Thanks! Nope, no expedite at any stage and no request for an earlier interview. I believe we made it through rather quickly due to the fact that Auckland Consulate probably is not as busy as some others, as well as the fact that our case is uncomplicated.

How far in advance did you do your medical.
Bird&bear on 2019-12-13 said:
@Zoule My husband did his medical about two weeks prior to his interview.

*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
