Had Interview - Reponse: "We will be in touch"

Filed: IR-1/CR-1 Visa Country: Israel

After 9 months of processing, my wife (Israeli citizen) finally had her CR1 immigration visa interview this morning at the US Consulate in Jerusalem. The interview was very cold and mechanical, but my wife answered all the CO's questions as best she could. There was not any attention paid to the documentation or photos. Some answers were better than others and at the end, the CO just said, "OK, you're finished," and took my wife's passport.

My wife asked "What should I tell my husband?" The CO only replied, "I will keep in touch with you." I would have thought the CO would have either said "You're approved" or "You're rejected."

My wife did NOT receive any Refusal Letter at the interview, but she also didn't go to the SHAAL Courier Service to pay for the passport to be returned. I might assume taking her passport was a good sign, but I'm not certain.

Has anyone gone through this process? Can you confirm if she should have received the Refusal Letter if she was refused? Did people who were approved have to go to the SHAAL Courier Service to pay for shipping?
