We contacted embassy and NVC to get any help to see when they schedule but they never responded.

Asked to expedite our case on October, but it got denied. Though the embassy seems to issue a few F2X visas per month very unfair.

Did they schedule your visa interview rather quickly? DO you know if there's a backlog for immigrant visa appointments in Lebanon?

*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
