US Entry :
Comments : Interview was brief and seemed all good, she didn't even ask for pictures (she'd already checked the ones we sent in our initial packet). Just asked a few questions, more about my childhood in Saudi Arabia. Everything seemed good, I was expecting her to say "You're approved"... However, she said I'd have to wait for them to complete some further administrative processes, there was no timeframe she could give, and handed me a green sheet of paper stating it was a temporary refusal under section 221(g) of the Nationality Act. Detailed review in a couple of days. I'm optimistic and hopeful!

*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
