Consulate Review: Haiti
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : October 5, 2012
Embassy Review : My wife came down for my interview. We left our hotel at 6:15 and got into the embassy at about 6:30. We were probably the 50th people in line. We went in at 7:00 and got out at 8:30 - enough time to make it back to the hotel for breakfast. We didn't have any problems at all. We provided the necessary documents- the medical report and the interview letter. The only additional documents that we were asked were pictures, which we provided. At first our documents were checked to make sure we were ready, and then were taken to be submitted to the officer. Then the consular officer interviewed us and asked the basic questions like, "When did you get married? Do each of you have any kids? How and when did you meet?" Then she said, "Well, good luck! You may pay at the booth!" She didn't say if we were approved or not, but we could tell. I guess that was her way of saying so.
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
