Was your case completed by NVC on Aug 18, 2020. Was your case expedited cuz your case was the only one DQ by august and got scheduled in late March ? Your replay will be appreciated.

I need to correct that. I thought I did but it must not have saved my changes. NVC told us at one point that there was a computer “glitch”. We had turned in all of our paperwork and got DQ papers for July 8, 2020.... but then something happened in the system and it asked us to submit approver paperwork a second time- then we got a second DQ paper stating the date was Aug. We called twice and were told that they couldnt correct the DQ date and it would be August, but apparently the workers on the phone were wrong. I believe they went by our original and correct date that was in July. Im sorry that it has caused confusion! I did think I updated it Im not sure why it didnt save my changes! Good luck to you and your family! I dont think a lot of people are having luck expediting.

Gongrates on your visa approval. I have a quick inquiry. After the interview the passport will be send back after stamping through the courier service. But what about the sealed package that they send. Is still sealed paper package and send directly to the address of the beneficiary, So he or she can bring it to the border at the POE, or is already send directly online now ?

They used to send a package. Now they send just the visas and the package is sent to the border electronically.

*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
