My wife's application was documentarily qualified on 11 Nov 2019.
I called NVC couple times in last 4 weeks and when asked query they replied it’s in queue waiting for interview .! US Embassy will let them know when they have interview slots and NVC will schedule but NVC can not estimate the timeline for an interview.

What's the approximate wait time for Spouse visa interview at Mumbai Embassy India?

Please share your experience.

Thank you .

Hi, what happened to me is super weird, I went for an interview in the Consular (with my O1 already approved) on Nov 12, in the time of the interview the officer told me everything is ok i have been approved and they will send me my passport in 3-4 days with the new visa in it. After 2.5 hours am receiving an email from the consular saying that "although you were advised at the time of your interview that your visa was approved, we will not be able to issue your visa right away nor confirm its approval at the moment, Rest assured that we will contact you when a determination has been made on your visa application case." without explaining the reason they did this and how long it will take. Now its been 6 weeks and I still did not receive my visa or any update on the administrative processing website.
Anyone on the same page? I do not know what it going on and I am worried since I might lose my job there. Anyone knowing how long I might wait? Guys am super worried about this.

My priority date is 5/7/19 and the I-130 has already been approved and forwarded to the NVC on 10/18. How long will it take before I hear from them? How long has it taken most of you? I am a US Citizen filing for my husband who is overseas.

My Consular processing is approved. But when i log in and try to select an Agent (DS-261) the option does not go through and is disabled. Anyone has experience with this? Why can't i select an agent even though it is written as first step?
Note that option to pay fees is enabled.

My husband has lived in the US since he was 4 years old and was protected under TPS.
He has been working with a lawyer for years trying to get his residency.
We have been married for 3 years and we have one child together.
He had his consulate appointment in San Salvador on April 15th, but he did not have a background check with him at the time (because his lawyer said he wouldn't need it) and needed to come back once he had the new paperwork. He turned the background check in on April 23rd and they told him that he should hear back from them within 10-22 business days.
It is now May 22nd and when I look on the CEAC website, it still shows that his case has not been updated since April 22nd.
Does this mean they haven't even started processing his case?

Hi everyone,

I got the following email today from NVC:

The U.S. Embassy Consulate General has accepted this case for expedited processing. This file will be immediately forwarded to the U.S. Embassy/Consulate General.
Any further questions concerning processing or the interview appointment date should be directed to the U.S. Embassy or Consulate General.
The U.S. Embassy or Consulate General may still request additional forms or fees at the time of your interview. Please be prepared to bring any missing forms and pay any required fees at the time of your interview.
Please note that it could take up to two weeks for the consular section to receive the case file once it has shipped from NVC.

Does this mean that I should receive a letter to my US address from the Consulate instead of NVC now? How about paying the fees? I did not get an invoice number but only a case Number from NVC on that same email.

I am not sure if I should wait for a response from the US consulate at this point and how long they take to proceed with the case? any assistance is appreciated!

Thank you!

Hello Everyone,

 but ive only lived in the US FOR 10 years and then i moved to BOLIVIA SOUTH AMERICA.
I married a bolivian and ive filled for his green card so we can move to the states.
They have approved my I 130 PETITION.

I-864, Affidavit of Support And his VISA DS -260 form are both PAID.

Im at the part where i have to fill out the I-864, Affidavit of Support.
I have a friend who will be our joint sponser . He lives in new york and meets all the requirment .
BUT now i myself have to fill out I 864
Ive never filled out any taxes because last time i was in the states i was 16 years old. ive never worked in the states.

I moved to Bolivia got pregnant at 19 and now im 24 and I just starting working. But in Bolivia filling out taxes is not an requirment. There is no penalty fee.
And I dont know how to fill out the I 864 because ive never done taxes.
