Comments : Immigration was a breeze..... the longest part was the long visitors' line. The only question asked was who petitioned for me...my husband, picture, fingerprints...then off to a room where about 15 persons were seated waiting (left most of them there still waiting)then signed two forms, finger print (manual this time) and left that room in like 12 mins to collect my bags. Good luck prospects and may God be with you always

Embassy Review : Ok,so we got there at about 7:00am for our 7:30 and 8:00am appointment(me and my daughter)We proceeded through the airport type security and into the courtyard. Hubby came along and was allowed to wait on us in the courtyard. As everyone said before the numbers are not called in order. Our first trip to the window was for finger prints and collection of medical. The lady asked if i had any docs for them and i said well i have 2010 tax papers dont know if u will need these and she said \"oh yes..good\" (they were never requested but thanks to VJ i got them just in case. Second trip was about 20 mins later swear in and interview. It was a nice white man about in his late 30\'s. Questions:

*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.
