Embassy Review : So, I got my visa approved today!!!! Yay!! javascript:emoticon('')

I got to the Embassy at 8:45 and my interview was schedule for 9am. They gave me the famous green folder and let me in and after going through security I went to the main building and waited by the front desk. After a little while someone realized that no one took my fingerprints so they made me go back outside to do that, but it only took a couple minutes. After that I got back into the building and was given a number. I walked into the waiting area and waited for like 2 minutes until my number was called. The lady at the window requested my police record, passport, pictures and made me sign a paper saying that everything on the documents was accurate. After that she returned everything we sent to the NVC and asked me to wait.
I had two people ahead of me so I didn't wait long. After 45 minutes they called me by name for the actual interview! First, the CO made me swear that I was going to tell the truth. After that he asked:

- How did you two meet?
- What do you like about him?
- What do you two have in common?

I answered every question and after that he said that we were approved!!! He told me about the new fee, which I already knew about because of VJ :D He also asked me for the DHL facility selection confirmation, so print out the information you get from their website when you select the facility. Also, make sure you bring copies of everything you have, they request originals, certified copies and also regular copies, so make sure you have them!!!

Now we are only waiting to get the passport back and we are good to go!!

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
