Is the Visa issued on the day of the interview?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I was just reading the CR/1 guide, It states:

"If the consulate officer approves your relative's immigrant visa application, your relative will be issued an immigrant visa that allows your relative to become a US permanent resident."

I was just wondering if the give you the visa the same day or if there is another wait ahead. I read somewhere that it is mailed the the beneficiary, which is a little scary to me. My Wife's address is in a remote province in the Philippines and mail only comes once a week. I have never seen it delivered personally, just lots of tricycles and jeepneys coming and going.

Would be nice to pick it up at the Embassy the same day, or even at a later date! Thinking happy thoughts :thumbs:

I think it depends on the country you come from. I come from Kenya and collected my visa personally a week after the interview!

yes there is wait

u have to wait for the shipping company to deliver the visa by mail and u need to pay for the service after u pass the interview

unless u have a emergency of some king which the CO accept then u can pick ur visa next day or the same day.

good luck

Our time line for CR1 visa took only 5 months and 1 week or 156 days; from the filing the I-130 on the 03-12-2009 to Approval of NOA2 on the 05/13/2009, then Interview on the 08/18/2009 at Manila, Philippines. We had a daughter on the 11-12-2010 named AISHA JOY means HAPPY LIFE.a1_opt-1.jpga2_opt-1.jpga3_opt-1.jpg

Like AbbynSheryl said, you have to wait unless you meet certain criteria ie..Your husband is in the military and about ready to be depoyed, or a serious illness. However, some have been able to pick up their visa at usem. Recently, I believe it was MattnBing that requested to pick up their visa and they were allowed to. I believe that Matt said he just told them that he wanted to be able for him and his wife to be able to fly to the States together. Anyway it wont hurt to ask. Good luck. Mike
