Consulate Review: Indonesia
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : March 6, 2012
Embassy Review : First, we arrived at embassy at 6:50 am. Not too many people were there. The guards however would not allow me to accompany my husband on line to wait to enter, I was ordered to wait and inside would say if I was needed there. My husband proceeded on line. I waited 2 hours on the sidewalk at embassy before a third guard came to escort me in. My husband had advised at window 5 that I was present and they were surprised to find I was kept outside. We waited 40 minutes more and my husband was called. We entered the room and interviewer welcomed me in. He asked my husband english or indonesian to speak and actually they flowed between both languages. The interviewer asked how we met, where we met and when. He asked if my husband ever came to america (no) and confirmed me to travel back and forth. He confirmed our past marriages and our children. And after a little nice talking he said we passed. Pick up visa march 9. Yahoo. I have to say the interviewer was the most pleasant man to talk to.
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
