Event Description
Review Date : June 5, 2012
Embassy Review : We have been waiting a long time for this day and it has finally come!

The entire interview process was exactly as everyone described. I got there around 6:30 and met Camille & Trent and Laurie (Anthony & Laurie) that were waiting by the doors. It was raining and cold and it felt like forever until they opened the doors.

I cant say what time that was because I had no way to checking the time (No cell phone no watch) This is a big deal, do not bring anything except your documents because there were many non-VJers there that were turned away because of large purses, briefcases and electronics.

Once we got through security (similar to the airport security but faster). It was pretty easy. They told us to go down the stairs and wait near the elevator. Definitely sit as close as possible to the elevator and try to keep the same line up as when you were waiting outside (it is only fair)

I got a ticket C3 and then the strange thing is they started to call the number backwords starting with C4, C3, C2... lol I dont know if it was just today.

Here is what was asked for:

- birth cerifiticate/copy
- affidavit of support
- 3 years tax transcript
- letter of intent

Thats it.

Then the questions the officer asked were:

- When did you meet?
- Where does your fiance live?
- When are you getting married?
- When do you plan on moving?

That was it.

Also the first consular office made small talk about the fact that he use to live in the city I drove from lol

The interview was really fast and we were out of there before 9:00am. Get there early!

Good luck to everyone else!
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
