Comments : Took a little longer to get the actual visa after the interview because I forgot to sign the no-tax form. Somehow this got by the NVC but they saw it at the embassy and told my husband during the interview that he needed to send that in with his passport. Added a couple weeks on.

Consulate Review: Israel
Review Topic: General Review
Event Description
Review Date : September 22, 2011
Embassy Review : They took the maximum time possible for every step of the process. Answering emails also took a very long time, and won't answer questions by phone. One idiot made a mistake and almost gave me a heart attack when he couldn't find my marriage licence even though all this info had been forwarded months prior from the NVC. The interview itself went well, once I actually got to the window after waiting for 3 hours past my scheduled appointment time. It's difficult to find parking in the area and the consulate is very hard to find. The set up for the interviews was bizarre - I had to scream through thick glass windows and it was difficult to hear the questions, especially since other people were right next to me going through the same thing. But, I'm in the US now so I guess it wasn't too bad! javascript:emoticon('')

*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
