Event Description
Review Date : June 15, 2021
Embassy Review : My wife said that it was very easy to get through. She went in around 12:45 and was out around 3:45pm. She was only asked 3 questions
1) Where are you going to live
2) how did you meet
3) why isn't your spouse here?

Hi did you file a i-129f after filing your i-130?
blank avatar James7370 on 2019-06-29 said:
no, I believe the I129 is another type of application for fiances

Where there any special circumstances as to why it was so fast for you? For example military or disability ? Been waiting since March 28 and nothing

I think I saw you had an IOE receipt number. That's amazing you're application was approved so quickly, congrats! Has NVC given you a case # yet?

Yeah! They still haven't done it. I've called multiple times. I think part of the problem is that my I130 was apart of a pilot program( with dumb luck) which got it approved faster. But I call many times to the NVC and they say its not in the system yet. I call USCIS and they say I have to wait at least 90 days before they can pressure the NVC. I've contacted NVCresearch and they haven't gotten back to me yet.

*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
