Event Description
Review Date : August 15, 2011
Embassy Review : My Husband went to the Embassy at about 6:00am he got there a little bit early for his 8am interview appointment and around 7am everyone started to line up and they went in at 7:30 am.

first he was called to window 1 where the person asked his wife's name and collected his passport and told him to go wait.

then about 30 minutes later he was called to be fingerprinted and again told to wait.

and then about an hour or so of waiting he was called for the final stage of the interview.

And this is what transpired according to my husband:

CO: Hi how are u?
H: Hello, I'm well thank you
CO: who is sponsoring you?
H: my wife
CO: what does you wife do?
H: Answer
CO: where does she live?
H: Answer
CO: Who is Co-sponsoring?
H: Answer
CO: who does your wife live with there?
H: Answer
CO: How many siblings does she have?
H: Answer
CO: How many sibling do you have?
H: Answer
CO: when did you get married?
H: Answer.
CO: Can I see some wedding pics?
H: Here you go...
CO: Very nice, can you tell me who is who?
H: Yes Sure..this is ...that is...
CO: Please sign here DS230 ....
H: Signed!
CO: Okay please come back to pick up your passport after we conduct an AP on your case we will notify you of the correct time.
H: AP? are you not satisfied do you need more evidence, because I have more evidence if you need to see ie. phone records, emails, skype logs!
CO: No no that won't be necessary, I'm very satisfied! as far as I'm concerned you got your visa you shouldn't be too worried.
H: Are we missing anything in our paperwork?
CO: No, everything is complete.
H: How long is the AP going to take?
CO: few days, few weeks, or few months..we will notify you.

We have no clue why he was put under Administrative review they said our paperwork is complete and don't require anything further from us and just told him to WAIT!!!

I don't know what to say about this experience I'm at a lost for words I just hope the WAIT ends soon!
Rating : Very Poor

*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
