Consulate Review: Mumbai, India
Review Topic: F-2A Visa
Event Description
Review Date : April 29, 2013
Embassy Review : My wife and daughter reached the consulate at 7.05 AM and let in by 7.15 AM. After regular security check, token numbers were provided. My wife and another applicant with baby let go through express route.

First interview was with one Indian lady and she asked the following questions.
1. Do you need translator
2. FPS taken
3.All originals were returned that we submitted to NVC

Immediately, my spouse was called to another window and an American male interviewed here;

1. Marriage related questions were asked-love or arranged
2. When did you get married
3. How did your marriage got arranged
4. How long do you know your spouse before marriage
5. Where did your marriage took place
6. When did your daughter was born
7. What does your husband do and where does he work

He viewed our marriage album and said visa is approved. Asked to sign the DS-230, took new passport photos and passport from my spouse.

Finally he complemented my daughter that she is so cute.

Very Important: No documents were asked at any point including the 2012 Tax Returns.
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
