Member Reviews:

Consulate Review: Warsaw, Poland
Review Topic: General Review
Event Description
Review Date : March 13, 2013
Embassy Review : Very professional and friendly. The only problem we had was that we were supposed to pick up my fiancees' visa the following day at the TNT office but it was not there. We returned to the Embassy and explained that we were scheduled to leave the next day and they promptly printed her visa and returned her passport within minutes. Not really sure what happened or who's fault the mix up was but my advice is to make sure where the passport will be going once you are approved.
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
