Event Description
Review Date : October 20, 2012
Embassy Review : March 29, 2012

My interview was simple and easy, i thought its too scary but i was wrong. My fiance is with me for my interview, and it helps for me because we both interviewed by the american console. She asked a few question to my fiance. When she saw my fiance she said "oh are you the petitioner? OK Since your fiance is present i don't need to asked you what his name. Then asked my fiance some question like: how many times you been here? What is your position in United Airlines? Did you fly too much? My fiance said NO i don't fly i do a ground job like bags just lead ramp service. Like i am responsible about all the bags of the passenger etc. Then she asked me, "where and when did you met? When the console found out that we just met last year she said "oh so it was love at first sight" Then my question for me are, "have you been outside the country before? do you have kids? why did you plan to get married there since your family and friend lives here? I answer her with smile and confident. Then she said "SEEMS LIKE YOUR PAPERS IS COMPLETE" OK CONGRATULATIONS YOUR VISA IS APPROVED. YAY, i knew it.. Thanks to all visa-journey members to help us through this journey and make it possible:-) Good luck to the other that they still waiting. I will be coming home soon. I love you babe, you are the best thing ever happen in my life:-) Thank you, that you came at the right time in my life

*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
