Consulate Review: Sweden
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : March 23, 2013
Embassy Review : This is my second one, a little more in detail.
There are already a lot of reviews about the process, but I\\\'d like to add that you can park on the street outside the embassy and pay for up to 4 hours I think? We emailed beforehand to get the USC on the list to go in. The USC was not able to participate in the interview, only listen.
We got asked the following questions:
When did we meet? How did we meet?
How long did we live together before we got married?
What did the Dane do for work?
What was he planning on doing for work in America?
What was he studying?
Why hadn\\\'t the USC really been working a lot for the previous years?
How did she afford to live on so little?
What was she studying?
Was the USC planning on having a career in America?
When had we visited?
When had the USC moved to Denmark?
What was the date of marriage?
Had any family come to visit the USC in Denmark? What dates?
Why were we moving to America?
Was the USC still in Denmark? Was she working in Denmark?
He then tried to trip up the Dane by referring to the USC by her mother\\\'s name.

POE Review: Boston
Event Description
Entry Date : 2013-04-16
Embassy Review : We all went in the USC line as a family, I handed the papers to officer who criticized my use of blue marker on the customs form (note to others, don't do that). We were put into secondary processing and the room was overflowing. It would be good to note that this was one day after the Boston bombings. It took about 1 hour and 15 minutes in secondary plus the 30 minutes waiting in the passport control line. The officers asked no questions of my husband or me. It was pretty painless in that regard and the waiting was abnormal for Boston based on comments by the staff.

*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
