Entry Date : 2004-02-04
Embassy Review : Entered on J-1 visa.
Harassment Level : Low

Local US CIS Office Review: Newark NJ
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : January 20, 2008
Embassy Review : Lasted exactly 12 minutes. AO didn't ask to see any documents except the sealed brown envelope. Asked us each maybe half a dozen questions and then approved us. Only problem was he stamped the passport with the previous year's info so the stamp was set to "expire" the day before it was granted. Luckily the card itself arrived in only 2 weeks.
Harassment Level : 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
