Embassy Review : MY HUSBANDS INTERVIEW WAS ON 3/5/12 HE GOT TO THE EMBASSY IN ABU DHABI EARLY AND WAS 1ST THERE. HE SAID HE WENT THROUGH THE SECURITY WITH HIS SUITCASE FULL OF BOOKS OF EVIDENCE WE PROVIDED AND THEY ASKED HIM TO LEAVE IT THERE AND CARRY IN ALL HE HAS BROUGHT. WAS A HUGE STACK OF BOOKS OF ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING WE HAD. WE GOT THE DOCUMENTS FROM THE WINDOW, TOOK FINGERPRINTS, AND WAITED TO BE SEEN BY THE CO, HE SAID SHE WAS A MUSLIM LADY IN HER 30;S AND ASKED HIM QUESTIONS LIKE

HOW WE MET,
HIS NAME,
WHEN WE MARRY

YOU KNOW ALL THE USUAL QUESTIONS THEY ASK,

HE SAID THE INTERVIEW WAS 10-15 MIN LONG HE WAS THERE A TOTAL OF AN HOUR..HE WAS THE ONLY EGYPTIAN THERE AND MOST EVERYONE WAS FROM IRAN. THE CO TOLD HIM EVERYTHING LOOKS OK AND GAVE HIM BACK HIS PASSPORT WITH A BLUE SHEET 221G AND SAID CHECK THE EMBASSY SITE FOR YOUR CASE STATUS IN 2 WEEKS AND DO WHAT IT SAYS.

HE THEN ASKED HER, WOULD SHE LIKE TO REVIEW ANY OF THE EVIDENCES WE HAVE THAT HE HAS CHATS, EMAILS, CARDS, PICS, PHONE BILLS, IRS FINANCE INFORMATION OR ANYTHING AND SHE SAID NO IT IS OK.

WE ARE IN ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESSING NOW......=[ WAITING AGAIN!

HE DID SAY THAT SHE WAS SO NICE AND PLEASANT WITH HIM.

*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
