    Default Just a quickie...

    Myself (UKC) andmy wife (USC) wehave gone the I-130 route and so far we have
    had our I-130 approved etc and on the 6th March sent the Visa Processing Fee
    back to the St Louis Facility (As requested by NVC). We are now awaiting
    them to send the I-184 forms to my wifes address in the USA and also to
    recieve the DS230 part 1. Calling NVC on the automated number shows that
    they are still "generating the fee letter and should recieve it shortly".
    How long should this process be taking now? How soon would it be on average
    before all forms are sent to getting that interview at the London Embassy?

    Here's our timeline for the London Embassy. May give you an idea of how long
    it's taking.

    1. 07/09/04 - Received I-130 NOA2 from Nebraska

    2. 22/10/04 - Received DS-3032 and $65 bill for I-864 from NVC. Bill
    must be paid before they process 1-864.

    3. 23/10/04 - Mailed check for I-864 $65 to NVC. Wrote letter advising
    them I was now residing in Georgia and wished to have my interview at the
    London Embassy visa department..

    4. 23/11/04 - Received $335 bill for processing spousal visa form
    DS-230 from NVC. Bill needs to be paid before they process the form.

    5. 24/11/04 - Mailed cashier's check for $335 to NVC

    6. 20/12/04 - Received form DS-230 plus instructions from NVC. I need
    to complete it and return it together with a barcode sheet and a photocopy
    of the biographical page from my passport. Also included in the package is a
    list of the items I need to get together to take to the interview in London.
    These are:

    ________________________________

    1. Birth certificates

    2. Police certificates

    3. Deportation papers

    4. Court and prison records

    5. Military records

    6. Marriage certificates

    7. Termination of prior marriages

    8. Translations.

    _______________________________



    13. 27/12/2004 - Mailed completed DS-230 to NVC. We now begin organizing
    the documents we will take to London.

    14. 24/01/2005 - Received notification from the NVC that our case had now
    been transferred to the London Embassy. One other thing, the letter makes a
    point of stating that we should have the last three years tax records ready
    for the London interview, even though it doesn't mention any other items.

    15. 10/02/2005 - Received packet four from the London Embassy with an
    appointment date for an IR-1 of 30th March 2005. Comprises of list of items
    to take with me (see above list), DS-230 part two, and the medical
    questionnaire. One thing that caught my eye; it says that when filling out
    the DS-230 I should use the words NOT APPLICABLE and not the shortened
    version of N/A. This would not be accepted if used.

    Thanks, appreciated.
    Hopefully shouldnt take too long then. We originally filed in Nebreska where
    we should have done for Utah but they sent it to California for the I-130 so
    that seemed to have speeded things up too so far. as our whole process
    started in November 2004
