Comments : Immigration process was really quick. I landed around 9 a.m. (got off the plane almost the last one) I was queuing at the visitor line, only took me about 15 line to get to the immigration officer. The immigration officer only asked 3 questions (same questions that were asked at the interview at the US Embassy in Bangkok)

Then she took me to the immigrant room, here took me about 5 min. to wait because there were two people in front of me, no question here just fingerprinted and signed, make sure the address is correct for those who will receive Greencard and SSN by post. Good luck everyone!!!

Comments : Did the biometrics in St. Louis but had an Interview at USCIS in Kansas City. Location-wise, I like the one in Kansas City more since it's located outside the city. There are parking available right in front of the building. The officers in both locations are friendly.

3. So, your husband lived in Thailand before, for how long?
4. What did he do? He was an exchange student at what university? But he had a degree from university in the States, right?
5. What kind of job do you plan to do in the States?
6. What did you do in Belgium? How long have you been there? In what level, university?
7. Where is your husband now?
8. When did he go back?
9. How do you keep in touch?

*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.
