yes TunisianYankee, its a spouse visa, and i'm on the collecting documents step and then sumbit the package to NVC, but for me the uscis time, took the whole 5 months... and at first i didn't know that it was me who would collect these files and send em to NVC from here
We lost time collecting documents too Youssef. Our USCIS processing time was only 17 days and we were expecting 5 months so we didn't have anything together yet!
The NVC is working to get their turn around time back down to 30 days but currently those being processed are getting approvals at around the 54-56 day mark. If you're not on visajourney.com already then you need to be.
