Comments : I am the US Citizen, my wife said the Interview was quick and easy. They only asked her how we met and what my occupation was for questions. I had forgot to send her my original divorce decree from my previous marriage (she just had a printed copy of it) so I needed to mail this to the Consulate. It took 8 days to get there by DHL, they received it on Wednesday Jan 31 2024 and had the visa made and placed by Thursday February 1 2024 end of day. She picked everything up on Friday February 2 2024 and will be flying to the USA February 3 2024. So if it wasn’t for my not sending her my original divorce decree this process would have been fast and easy!

How was it done so quickly ?

I applied for a K-3 visa as well…it may have helped speed it up…But it was not looked at until after the I-130 was approved. So I don’t think it made a difference. I just think that the processing centre’s are processing both older and newer applications to try and “burn the candle from both ends” to try and get the amount of applications down. And not necessarily processing them in the order they are received.

Congratulations! I hope all went smoothly at the interview! Did you transfer your case to Kazakhstan? Or do you reside there? Thanks

Thank you! It seems things went well with the interview. My wife and stepdaughter were basically approved, but I needed to mail my original previous divorce decree to the Consulate. Hopefully once they get that they will create the visa because the did hold onto their passports so they could do this once they receive my divorce document. I had requested a transfer to Kazakhstan for them through NVC, my wife’s got approved but not my stepdaughters, so then I requested to transfer with the Almaty consulate and they approved her transfer.

*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
