Hi this is just a general question, I'm not even close to this stage.

At the POE, is it another interrogation or is your IR-1/CR-1 visa an "easy" entry into the country?

Did they take you off somewhere special for questioning?

You can have a leaf through some of the POE reviews to gets general idea of what happens. It seems to be a little hit and miss in terms of level of scrutiny - maybe down to whatever IO you have the luck of meeting with.

Was that necessary before someone could give me an answer? Anyway, thanks I'll go look at that section.

If CR-1/IR-1 visa holder enters the U.S. for the first time on immigrant visa, she/he will be escorted automatically to the secondary inspection where he/she will be processed.

Upon the entry, you must give the sealed envelope along with passport and custom form to the immigration officer at the secondary inspection, then the immigration officer will open it and review it. He/she might ask you some questions (maybe similar to questions at the US embassy interview). It will take time (from few minutes to hours -- maybe sitting hours). The immigration officer will further investigate the foreign national to verify information and address any concerns. This information will be checked against information contained in their database.

Thanks... wow, they don't stop do they? You'd think after the Visa was issued you would've been inspected thoroughly already. lol
