Consulate / USCIS Member Review #29362

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Review on March 20, 2021:



Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

We had our appointment scheduled to 10am. We were there 10 minutes earlier. They walk us in, the staffer gave us some forms and the documents checklist (you must put all documents in the sequence listed). After some time, a 2nd staffer called us to a booth with bullet proof glasses and ran over all the documents. After over 3 hours wait, the consul was checking his computer for a while (probably looking at our documentation) and finally called us for the interview (we were the very last interview of the day!!!). After 3 or 4 questions like 'we did you meet?', 'where are you planning to live?", etc. He told us everything looked good and he would take some notes. At the end, he told us my visa would be printed in the same day but it would be available at ASC probably in the next week. The consul was very polite and smiley the entire time.
