Consulate Review: Laos
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : December 7, 2013
Embassy Review : I took personal leave from my work and flew to Vientiane, Laos for my wife interview. The interview was for my wife but I am glad that I was their with her and my step son for the interview. A female in mid 40's American case offer called my name first to the window and politely informed me that the interview is for my wife and if she has any questions, she will call me to the window and asked me take a seat. My wife and I were sitting in the front rows, across from the CO window. Shortly after, she called my wife to the window while my son was sleeping on my laps and the CO did noticed that with a smile. The CO asked very simple questions to my wife, how she knows me? where we meet? when we got married? where we got married? where does your husband lives in U.S? and where does he works? My wife answers all of her questions and she stayed relaxed while she was answering questions. The CO thank her and asked her to take a seat. The CO then called my name to the window and asked me clarification on where did we exactly got married and after that she said she will have the visa ready by the end of today or after the weekends. Since I was there with my wife, the staffs did noticed that how much both of us truly love each other. Therefore, I would highly encouraged if both spouses can attend the interview then by all means be there! We got our visa after the weekends!
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
