Consulate Review: Jamaica
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 22, 2014
Embassy Review : My Husband and I arrived at the embassy at 8:00am for his 8:00am appointment. I was not allowed inside so I had to wait across the street. When he got inside he went through security and took a seat. He waited thirty minutes and was called to the window where they took his medical and fingerprints. He sat down again and waited two hours for the actual interview. When his name was called he was greeted by a young white male. He was sworn in and was asked the following questions.
- Where did you meet your wife
- How long did it take her to make her first trip to Jamaica
- What kind of work does your wife do
- How long did it take you guys to get married

The interviewer said I see your wife comes to Jamaica a lot when is the last time you saw her? My husband said My wife is right outside. After that he said he was approved. My husband said the interview was like having a conversation. Have all your paperwork in order and you will be fine.

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
