K3 & returned for CR1 interview

16 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I did post briefly in the London Embassy forum after my interview, but we arrived home last night after our trip to England so am posting here now!!

The CR1 interview was easy pretty much the same as my K3 interview, my interview was on a friday, and i got my passport back on the saturday morning, which was pretty fast!!

I entered Chicago POE yesterday it took them about 5 minutes to process me with no problems & now i'm done with immigration for 2 years -90days YAY! :dance:

The K3 visa i had in my passport, the embassy just put a stamp on it saying it was cancelled without predjudice :yes:

Frickin Montreal is backed up, so everyone's waiting about 4 months for interviews. It's been 6 weeks since case completion, so we still have 2.5 months. :wacko:

I'm glad you're happy in Mich!
