Comments : His plane landed at JFK from Doha an hour early at 2:28 (no problem I tracked everything). Ade was told to go to an office. The guys changed shifts. Asian guy said "sign here." On the way out, someone asked if he was here to live. He said yes and was told to enjoy his stay! He was blazing out of the gate by 3:30.

He flew Qatar and loved it! They provided hotel stay and buffet for his layover. He raved about the courtesy of their staff and said they really know how to take care of people/ do business.

Also, I wasn't expecting to wait inside the airport for him. Qatar's terminal 8 disspelled that fallacy.

Consulate Review: Nigeria
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : May 10, 2012
Embassy Review : My husband was intially asked where we met? There was a discrepancy in what he said and what was documented during his tourist visa interview. That was cleared. Then he was asked why we sent sexually explicit chat to NVC, DHS, the US Gov't...(I sent the entire 1st month of our chat and 1 excerpt from the following months. I did not remove anything from the 1st month because I did not want any accusations about why days were missing.) My husband says the guy asked this 10 different ways and was really aggravated by it. My husband explained to him that had we excluded chats would they not have questioned that as well? The CO asked him who was giving the interview him or my husband? He had my husband read the chat aloud for all to hear. My husband was extremely embarassed by this.

He was told that he did not need to ask any additional questions, because all the evidence I sent substained an approval.

They had to find something to harp about and attempt to belittle my husband. I'll take an approval anyway you slice it!

*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.
