Thank you @TayTay2022!!! Try sending a message to nvc. Also try calling the DR consulate. Mines took 5 months (Oct 22), when it arrived (Mar 23) the Interview was in 2 months (May 23). My friend got his interview with just 2 weeks notice. Super tight deadline to get the medical exam and fingerprints at Galeria 360.

Do you mean public inquiry with nvc? Do you have Dr consulate number by any chance?
TayTay2022 on 2023-05-25 said:
That is a really tight turnaround. How did he turn out with her interview? Approved?
blank avatar Bombom1421 on 2023-05-26 said:
Yes, the nvc public inquiry. I do not have the DR consulate number unfortunately. You should be able to do a google search. The interview went well. Simple questions. I added the questions under ‘embassy review’ in my timeline.

Oh ok. Did you upload anything to ceac before heading to interview? Did your taje stuff with you?
blank avatar Bombom1421 on 2023-05-26 said:
We took our birth, marriage and divorce certificates. Proof of relationship (photos, bank letter, my passport and wire transfers), his new ‘papel de buena conducta’ police report, and updated tax transcripts. We uploaded the updated w2, work letter and tax transcript and his updated police report the week before the interview.
TayTay2022 on 2023-05-26 said:
perfect... I just dont want to have to upload photos. We have album and a few extra sheets of pictures on it that we can take. I'll remind him to get new letter of "buena conducta" 1 week before... thanks so much. Best of luck bringing your spouse home! Again, my sincerest congratulations and God Bless <3

*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
