Event Description
Review Date : April 22, 2022
Embassy Review : My interview was rescheduled from 2/8/2022 to 4/21/2022. I made sure I got to the US consulate Lagos on time (6.30)while appointment was 8:30am.I queued up for security check after which I got into the main hall for the interview.I was called up at window 17 for document verification and submission, then went and sat down waiting for my turn for the interview.After what seemed like one hour, I was called to window 21 for my interview by a young man.It was more like conversational.
Questions: You are …….,I said yes, where does your wife live and work?And for how long has she worked there?If I have married before?Do I have children,does my wife has children?For how long has we been married?what do I do for a living and if I will continue with that in USA?The interview lasted a bit longer because his system was slow but at the end of the day?he approved my immigrant visa application.He told me it will be ready between one to two weeks.

Someone in our WhatsApp group chat was documentarily Qualified on 4/12/2020 and was scheduled for interview on 10/2/2022. Got a mail from nvc yesterday to resubmit d-260 and i- 1864. Reason was that ds260 and i864 expires after one of submission. You and the person have similar timeline, although she's not in this group. Try and enquire about it . Thanks πŸ™

*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.
