CR-1 visa timeline, took 307 days, issued in Budapest

Heya all! Finally got my visa after a long-long time! Although I do realize this actually counts as fairly lucky and quick, especially for the I-130 approval, and even for the NVC document review. In fact NVC processing times dipped to half the normal length exactly when I submitted.

The case went through consular processing, but not DCF and without any expedite requests.

Here's our timeline:

  • 2020-10-23: I-130 Sent
  • 2020-11-16: I-130 NOA1
  • 2021-01-20: I-130 Approved

  • 2021-03-17: DS-260, AoS, & all documents sent to NVC
  • 2021-04-23: Documentarily qualified at NVC
