Consulate Review: London, United Kingdom
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : November 8, 2011
Embassy Review : I had read all the reviews on Visa Journey and so I knew exactly what to expect - and was able to advise the poor souls standing in the queue with their mobile phones and car keys.
They started letting us in at 7.30 and I was the third person through the door. The first numbers were called up at 8am and soon after that I was called up for my documents to be checked. I was then sent back to the seating area to wait to be called again. As others have said, they call lots of N numbers for each I number (Non-Immigrant and Immigrant I guess), but I didn't have to wait too long and in fact I was out by 9am.
In the interview I was asked the date of my marriage and when Trevor naturalized and the CO asked me about my arrival in the US in January when I had to go through secondary processing and was advised that that was the last time they would let me in under the VWP. But that was it.
So it was all very straightforward and, if it hadn't been for the opportunity of a chat with Jonathan Miller in the waiting area, it might even have been a bit of an anti-climax.
Rating : Very Good


POE Review: Atlanta
Event Description
Entry Date : 2011-12-04
Embassy Review : It was a bit of an anti-climax really. Took about 15 minutes in total, most of which I spent sitting down in the waiting area while the officer went through my documents. Four signatures and two fingerprints later and she told me I was free to go. No questions and no 'Welcome to America'. But I am here now and so a new life begins!
Harassment Level : Low

*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
