Consulate Review: Dublin, Ireland
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : June 26, 2013
Embassy Review : It was a very nice, easy and pleasant experience. The security staff were very nice and pleasant, I waited for 1 hr then I was called to the first window where a very nice Irish lady verified all my paperwork I had previously submitted, if there was anything missing you would submit it at this stage, she just asked if my daughter was a us citizen and I confirmed she was. She complimented me on the organised application I had submitted saying \"if everyone submitted application like you it would make our job very easy\" I thanked her and said \"I could not have done it without VJ\".
She did look for my co-sponsors 2012 tax records as my process started in Sept 2012 I submitted 09,10 and 11 tax records. She gave me an email address and asked if I could email the records to them. She told me the visa is approved but will be held until they receive the tax return. I the waited 10 mins and was called to another window where a nice American man swore me in and asked me 4 questions How long was I married? Where do we intend to live? what is my occupation? what does your husband do? the process was completed within 20 mins of been called. I submitted the tax records later that evening and at 7am I got a response from the visa unit telling me all was in order. I must say that it was overall a very relaxed and pleasant experience and the embassy people were so nice and put everybody at ease. Got my visa in hand on Friday 28th now that's efficient... so impressed with the USA embassy Dublin.

*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
