Embassy Review : Hi all:
First of I'm debt full to all friends at VisJourney who help me alot during this journey. I'm pretty sure, it was not so easier without this forum. I just want to share our interview experience that will give some ideas to the people who are still in same boat.

My wife reach US embassy at 12:30 pm because interview time was listed as 1:30 pm. Security person request to come back at 1:15 pm and she back at 1:15 pm after spending some times outside. When she back to embassy, there was a long line (about 20 people) and she got her turn as 15th. She waited up to 3:30 pm for her turn. She went infront of the widows when they call her turn. Officer asked just 2 questions to her.

1. How long your husband have been in US?
She answered: About 6 years.
2. What you have the other stuffs to support he is your husband?
She answered: I have couple of photo albums. I have skype chat and call log. I have emails, telephone call logs etc.

Then, officer asked for small photo album..just turned 5-6 page and told her, " You are qualified, Congratulation. Come back Thursday to collect your visa".
After that Officer returned all the original documents I submitted at USA to NVC.

Finally, finished long journey. Both of us are very happy.
Don't worry, wait patiently, you will hear good news soon.
Good luck to all the members of VisaJourney.
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
