Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : March 3, 2012
Embassy Review : My husband arrived at the Embassy at 630am. Outside in front of the building there were several people standing waiting for them to open. At 7am they opened the door and started letting people in. At the door there was a security guard talking to people as they entered. When my husband approached the front door entrance the guard told him that he would need to have a police certificate done and it would cost $50.00 USD. This was a scam. (For Haiti a police certificate is not needed).
When my husband entered the building, there a lady at the window near the entrance. She greeted him and asked my husband who is sending for him. Also asked for his medical letter, passport, money transfer receipts and two pictures of us together. She then told him to have a seat. After a few minutes of sitting, they called him to have his fingerprinting done.After he was done with his fingerprinting they sent him to have a seat again.
While waiting for more than an hour, there were many people name called for there interview. Some people were denied because of insufficient evidence, some were asked to have there spouse or fiance present, while there were others that were approved. There were actually three windows open for interviews.
When they finally called my husband to the window. A white American man with a awkward creole accent greeted him and asked him to raise his right hand and if he sweared to tell the truth. My husband replied yes. The questions that he asked my husband were: Who is applying for you? When did you meet? Where did you meet? Did you know your wife before she came to Haiti? When did you get married? Where does your wife live? How many kids does you wife have? How old are they? Will you consider the child as your own? When are the times you and your wife met? When you and your wife meet, do you have a lot of sex? Can you show me an intimate picture of you both? Where was your wife born? Where does your wife work? While my husband started to answer his last question. He interrupted him to say okay you have been approved and asked him to pay $10.00 for the visa. He then sent him off with a packet which contained a copy of some of the documents that were given and told him that his visa would be ready on the 12.

*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.
