Event Description
Review Date : May 27, 2012
Embassy Review : Had the appointement at 830. Got there at 815 and were let in pretty fast. I was told to go to window G there was a couple of people ahead of us. After waiting for about 20 minutes it was our turn, we handed in our passports and were asked to sit down. We waited for another hour or so and then we got called back to window G where we were asked to write our address on an envelope and hand in papers that they had asked for, in our case it was my husbands taxes for 2011. Then we were asked to sit down and wait again. 11 o'clock they called us to window F where the interview took place, I was asked how me and my husband met, what I fell for in him, how the wedding was etc. I was also asked how many times my husband has been here to visit us. My son was asked if he was looking forward to move. I left my fingerprints, but my son didn't have to do that. The interview itself took 5 minutes.... The only negative was the wait before the interview.

Bring coins to the vending machine, you'll get thirsty cause it's hot in there!

*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
