US Entry :
Comments : I initially had my interview date on 2nd April, 2020 but it was cancelled due to Covid. I got the cancellation email 2 weeks before the appointment but I had already done my medical exam a few days before that.

On 8th September, 2020 I received a call from the embassy telling me my medical expires soon(mid September) and if they extend it one month, will I be able to travel before the extended period expires? I said yes I can travel. I was told that my interview will be scheduled for next week and then two days later, I got an email to appear for interview on 14th September, 2020.

The wait was long but the interview itself was very short. ~10 mins total. Out of which questions/answers would have been 3-5 minutes maybe, rest of it was the CO typing on computer. I was mainly asked questions about my wife, the marriage, how we met and then asked to show the wedding photo album. They didn't ask me for photocopies of anything, not even passport photocopy. At the end of the interview, CO gave me my original documents(Marriage certificate, birth certificate, nikkah nama with English translation) back and said "That's all. You'll receive your visa in 2 weeks. Good luck. Bye". They kept my passport.

I didn't actually ask if my Visa was approved but since I wasn't given any form and the CO said 2 weeks, I just assume that means approval. My CEAC status currently shows Administrative Processing.

*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
