In 2019 it is typically taking about 10 months to go through the complete fiance visa process. This is up from the 6-9 months it used to take to go through the process.
The 10 months is the typical wait time for the complete fiance visa process. This means it is typically taking 10 months from when the case is filed to when your fiance enters the United States.
You will see blog posts etc. about how a fiance visa can be approved in 3 to 5 months. However, those discussions center around the time it is taking for USCIS to approve a fiance visa case. USCIS approval is only 1 out of 3 steps that need to be taken for the fiance visa to be granted. The other 2 steps are approval at the National Visa Center and at the Embassy/Consulate. By the time a case has gone through all 3 stages it should take about 10 months.
We have had a case or two where the total processing time has been closer to 6 months. However, this is definitely the exception and not the rule.
