What is the total processing time to get the visa?

This varies with the efficiency of the service center where your petition is being processed and the Embassy. To give you an example: in March 2010 the US Embassy in Bangkok had a processing time of two weeks, in June 2011 a processing time of 2 ½ months. In May 2010 the USCIS California service center had an average processing time of 2 ½ months. In February 2011 the USCIS Vermont and California service centers had an average processing time of 5 ½ months. In June 2011 the California service center has an average processing time of 3 months, and the Vermont service center has an average processing time of 4 months.

You should plan on an average processing time of 5-6 months, but check with us for up to date information.

The secret to fast processing is experience and being prepare and ready to initiate each step in the process when that step becomes available for you to take.
