Event Description
Review Date : July 19, 2017
Embassy Review : The process for my fiance was fairly straight forward. After handing them the packet 3 with all the information requested they reviewed the information for about a half hour. Then she had a couple interviews, one in Spanish one in English (though they asked her if she spoke English, and since she can they proceeded in English). The questions were pretty standard: how and when did you and your fiance meet, when have you seen each other, explain overstaying a tourist visa 5 years ago (she accidentally overstayed her tourist entry by a few weeks one time), etc. Afterward she was informed she was approved and they would email her when she will be getting her physical copy of the visa in her passport.

We were pretty nervous for her going into it (just from hearing horror stories, etc.) but it was a smooth and friendly process.
Rating : Very Good

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
