Consulate Review: Nigeria
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : November 15, 2011
Embassy Review : Here is my husband's day of interview: I left my home by 5.00 AM ,I got to the American Embassy at 5:25 AM. At 9.00 a.m. the security men came and told us to line up in 2 straight line .Immigrant line 1 and Non Immigrant Line 2.

On the line while going in through security, they told us to drop any electronics or metals, soaps. They check on my Appointment Letter, my Passport, my 3 photographs. By 9:15 a.m. on the entrance of the Interview Hall, I met another security person who told me to click on a machine that indicate A for Non Immigrant and B for Immigrant and then I point on Immigrant and I received a printed receipt and on the Receipt I got a number. My number on the receipt was B421.

Before I was called for my Interview, they first attend to most of the elderly people. I was the 10 or 11th that was called on the interview. A lady interview me.

These are the Questions she asked me:
Who is your Petitioner
How old is she
Where was she born
Where did she work
what position does she hold in her Job
Where does she live
Did she live alone
When she came to America
How old is her son
How did you met
Who was the first that contact each other
Whats did you think about the age difference
What did you intend to do when you get to state
What's the weather like in Lancaster

Then after all these questions, she asked me to wait a little that she will be right back and when she came back, she said I am giving you your Visa, Congratulation.

Rating : 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
