Review Topic: Waiver/Admin Review

For my husband's interview, he went to Guatemala by himself (we had filed the I-601A waiver from the US, while he was still in the US, and he only left the US once it was time for his interview at the embassy in Guatemala). He arrived 2 hours before the interview, but there were already a lot of people in line. Make sure you have a valid Guatemalan birth certificate that's less than 6 months old. Everything went very smoothly, the interview was even in Spanish, and the interviewer asked him the standard basic questions of who's sponsoring you, when did you enter the US, etc. The only documents she asked him for during the interview were my pay stubs (since I am his wife and his financial sponsor, too). At the end of the interview, she said, "Congratulations, welcome to the US!" The interview was on a Thursday and he received his passport at Cargo Express on Monday (it probably would have been available on Saturday, but due to our religion, we cannot do business-type things on that day,... read complete review

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

Husbands interview was on Monday September 11, 2017 at 8:15 am he got a little before 7am, by 11 he was out and visa was approved. We had an approved 601A that was submitted prior to sending NVC the packet. The questions they asked him were 1. Who was petioning him 2. Where did we meet 3. Has he ever been in the US 4. Has he ever left the US 5. Did he re-enter the US 6. How many children we have . The consular then asked for the original BC from Renap (the one that has the pictures, updated in 2017) & the original of marriage certificate.
He said the consular and pretty much all the embassy workers were very nice and not how our attorney was describing them.
They told him it would be 2wks for passport with visa to be ready however it was ready for pick up on Friday 9/14/2017. I highly suggest checking the US Travel doc website and the CEAC website the ceac website will update I the following order , it will reflect as "Ready" for a good day or two , the. It will show "A... read complete review

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

We arrived for our 7:20am appointment around 6:45am and then waited for them to start calling for the 7:20am appointments. There were about 30 people that were there for the 7:15am appointments, it seemed like they were the fiancé visas and people petitioning for relatives other than spouses.

At 7:20 they reviewed my husband’s medical packet and appointment letter. I was really surprised because it seemed we were the only ones doing Direct Consular Filing for a spouse. We passed through security, and then went into the embassy building to wait for them to call our number. When our number was called the woman requested the basic documents (marriage cert, birth cert, police records, I-864, etc.). We then sat down and waited to be called for the interview. We were able to sit next to the line of windows were the interviews take place, so we heard a lot of people going through the interviews. It was nice to hear people being approved and a few people who were not ap... read complete review
