Oh wow so you we’re approved in just 3 months at Nebraska service center. Congrats

Yes thank you. If it wasnt for the member’s advice and encouragement from the Nebraska FB group our case would still be stacked up somewhere right now. They encouraged us to file K3.

Hi! Congrats on your approval! My Wife had her interview on the same day as you and she was approved! Could you please keep us updated on when you receive your Visa? Consul said 3-4 weeks, but from what I can gather, it's been usually 3-4 days. I'll update our timeline when we get ours. Currently, nothing is trackable on the 2Go website.

Hello. the embassy issued my husband’s visa on the July 6th and gave him 48 hrs to enter the US.
blank avatar KimGi on 2020-07-08 said:
Consulate contacted him to have it picked up at the embassy.
TJL on 2020-07-08 said:
Wow! Okay. Well, I'm glad it worked out for you! Congrats again!

I'm surprised your K3 was approved. USCIS only granted 5 K3 visas in 2019.
blank avatar KimGi on 2020-07-20 said:
Hello our K3 was denied, but it did help review our case again and approved our cr1 under 4 months
blank avatar User555 on 2020-07-21 said:
Interesting. We didn't file K3, but got approved in 5 months for the CR1 at the Texas Service Center.

A fellow applicant, whose case was also in Nebraska, hooked us up to some “game” 😁😂

*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
