Hi guys! It looks like you have made it through to the embassy stage. Does it seem like they are going to honor your interview date?
Khloey on 2020-06-08 said:
Did you requested for expedite appointment?
Nathan B on 2020-06-16 said:
We are waiting for an interview at the Tokyo consulate as well and seem to be on almost the exact same timeline. Did you submit a request for an emergency interview?
Davis4130 on 2020-06-16 said:
We requested expedited processing, but not emergency. Unsure if they’ll keep the date or not; guess we’ll see in two weeks...
Nathan B on 2020-06-16 said:
Thanks for the info! I don't want to be too nosey and you definitely don't have to answer this, but what was the reason for the expedited processing request?
Davis4130 on 2020-06-19 said:
Long story there, but the short version is that we just missed the timeline to apply as active duty stationed in Japan (that enables you to file the entire package, I-130 and all, through the Embassy instead of USCIS and NVC). When able to file that way, you're in and out in ~ 3 months. I'd already taken orders back to the States, but decided to see if I could get a waiver to apply through the embassy anyway (all they can say is no, right?). They did, in fact, say no to that one, but they offered to expedite once our case hit the NVC... As for the COVID piece and the interview actually happening - I certainly hope it holds, but we'll see! Either way, they were super helpful, and we were pretty fortunate to get this far as quickly as we did.

Thank you very much for the reply. Good luck with the interview!

Good luck today at your interview!

Thanks for the notes! All went well, the interview itself was only about 5 minutes long...

Congratulations you guys!

Congratulations!! I had heard from other people that it only took about 4 days to get the passport back (fiance visa) but maybe there's a delay because of covid... was it shipped to Tokyo or a different prefecture?
*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.
