Consulate Review: Manila, Philippines
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : October 13, 2011
Embassy Review : Interview was very smooth.

The Filipina CO for initial interview asked a couple of questions about the date on when we met, officially in a relationship, the last time I saw my husband in person. She also asked me about my ALMA MATER and if I was able to practiced my Bachelor Degree and I answered YES. She asked me if I have a CENOMAR (CEMAR if you are married), I gave it to her and she stapled it with the other civil documents.

She asked if I got pictures so I gave the album, she complimented my wedding gown and asked about the motif of my wedding. Basically she complimented most of the pics, no questions was asked cause I got every pics labelled with the name of the people and places.

After that, I was about to gave her the other evidence of relationship but she said its enough and just wait for my number for last interview.

My last interview was with an American Lady, very pretty white girl and young as well. She asked me if I want to be interviewed in tagalog or english so I said English is ok.

She asked about the date of my wedding, asked for pictures, again she complicated my wedding gown just like the first Filipina CO. Then she said" Congratulation, Your visa is approve, Welcome to United States of America"

It was a very good experience.
Rating : Very Good

*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.
