Consulate Review: Nigeria
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : September 22, 2012
Embassy Review : Arrived the embassy at about 5:30am. Few minutes before my appointment which 7am we were informed about what are not allowed in the embassy.Item like cellphones, any electronic device, sharp metal objects and the likes.

Waited for almost 2hrs after what I call the Pre-Interview. Now the proper interview:

Tell me something about your wife?

What does she do for a living?

How did you meet?

What type of wedding did you have?

How many people present at the wedding?

Who chose the rings?

Thank you. Your visa is approved.

The interview time was so short not more than 5mins for me I guess because we had front loaded but others spent more time. Generally they approved lots of visa(s) and denied a few. Those are my own observation.
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.

** Not all cases are transfered
