  • Waiting time for CR1 immigrant vsia interview at Bombay

    Case history so far for our US citizen-based spousal immigrant visa:
    • I130 filed in July, 2018
    • I130 approved in March, 2019
    • NVC started the process in early May.
    • All fees paid, and all documents submitted in mid-May (AOS, civil docs, DS260, etc.)
    • Biometrics, medical exam completed this week
    • Awaiting for a visa interview date .....

    Does anyone have any experience, or any links, to estimate (a) how long does NVC take to schedule the visa interview? (b) how far in advance is the Bombay consulate booked?

      Yes, biometric and medical can be done, before visa interview is scheduled, as long as DS 260 confirmation page has been generated.

          Contact VAC in Bombay, and Medical facility. They only need the DS260 confirmation page which you should have received on the NVC site.

            parks thanks. When did you receive email from NVC saying they will schedule an interview?

              They do not first send an email saying they will schedule an interview and then a second email MN saying here is the Interview date.

              The very first email from them about interview will be the one with the scheduled dat .

              If you have completed the DS260 form on CEAC website, then you would have a confirmation from that pag .

                    No updates...
                    Biometrics done, medical scheduled.

                    But, no update from NVC on acceptance of the updated document (certificate rotated by 90 degrees). No interview date yet..
                    CEAC website has no update. NVC
                    Phone number always busy.
