Comments : My initial interview date of February 16 was rescheduled to March 18.
I got up 4am, had packed all my stuff (documents binder) last night so I just moved it the car and left by 5am.

Took me 30mins to get to d embassy.
I was told to go inside with d 6:30 appointment group, though my appointment time was for 9:30am.

I was called to Window 15 where a young african american lady interviewed me.

She asked who petitioned for me and if ive traveled outside Nigeria and for what purpose, then we discussed how we met and how d relationship grew, also d wedding.

She checked my wife’s transcript and was like “she dont need no joint sponsor” of course we knew but we have heard much wahala and wanted to be overly prepared.

She then asked for wedding pictures and while she looked at that I added d candid pictures.
She checked a few pages and returned everything to me.
I asked why she returned all the papers she responded with “have a safe flight to USA, Cheers.”

God took perfect control.

Congratulations, I'll like to know did you case already get transferred to the US consulate in lagos or still at the NVC
Lapis Lazuli on 2020-11-12 said:
technically we’re still at that in between stage where NVC works with Lagos Consulate to provide us an interview date. Right now, I know they’re dealing with rescheduled interview appointments from March, so i’m just praying in Jesus name to hear another update from them this month.

For the wedding pictures, did you have them in the binder or a separate photo album?
Lapis Lazuli on 2021-04-02 said:
had wedding photos and candids printed out on about 24 individual pieces photo paper because we knew our album or binder may not fit in the receiving slot.

*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
