Comments : For anyone going trough the LAX POE and have another connection flight I strongly suggest you get enough time between flights because their is a long line to get through immigration. My husband had 6 hours between his connection flight but he was changed to another flight and that reduced his connection time to 2 hours and that was not enough time for him to get through immigration and get his checked luggage. My husband ended up missing his flight and needed to purchase another ticket that could take him to his final destination on that same day.

Consulate Review: Peru
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : October 12, 2012
Embassy Review : First of all it is recommended that you get there early. The embassy opens at 7:00a.m. My husband got there at 6:00a.m and their was no one there just the security man, so my husband was the first one in line. The security man will tell you where to go and you have to wait there. He just waited for about 5 minutes then they called him. First he talk to a Peruvian lady at a window, she then asked him for his medical results, then she asked him questions like where did you two meet, how many times did she visit you and what is her occupation. Also, she asked if he had any evidence and he just showed him photos. She then told him to sit and wait then in 10 minutes an American lady gave him a sheet of paper like taking an oath and he had to read it out loud. Then she asked him the same questions as before. While asking him the questions she was looking over the papers that we had sent to the NVC and the photos. then she just said all smiling "Congratulations your visa is approved." After that she gave him a piece of paper with instructions on how to sign up for the DHL to receive his visa and passport. After being inside the Embassy the total time he was in there were just 20 minutes. Overall, my husband said it was an easy experience the American lady that interviewed him was very nice and treated him really well.

*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.
