Consulate Review: Moscow, Russia
Review Topic: Direct Consular Filing
Event Description
Review Date : June 22, 2012
Embassy Review : Be prepared to be there ALL DAY, okay, half of it at least. Our interview was for 8 am, we got there at 7:45.... actually gave our papers at around 9, the interview itself was at about 11:20 am. The interview was extremely easy.
- 'How did you meet?"
- They asked me about a previous I-129F petition.
- Asked for photos of my husband's visit to the States to meet my family.
- Asked how my parents felt about not being able to attend the wedding and getting married in Russia.
- If Max liked the US, my state.
- If I lived with Max.

The CO wasn't Mrs. Smiles, but she did approve us and was very polite through the whole thing, it was a very quick interview, easy as you can see. Received our passport 3 days after the interview via Pony Express, but be careful, they screwed up our address and we had to call and argue with them to get it!
Rating : Very Good

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
