Consulate Review: Mumbai, India
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : May 8, 2013
Embassy Review : It was smooth interview, my wife arrived 6:15 am and was out by 9:30 am.
Questions asked: How do you know him? What does he do? Do you plan to work? Show me some pics? After looking at the wedding pix, IO states that my wife won't have to work if she sells all her wedding jewelry. Your visa is approved and pay the new $165 fee before leaving for US.

Few notes: They did not ask her for w-2 or previous federal tax returns. Outside the embassy, most people in immigrant lines were elderly people ,almost 80%.
I recommend hotel kohinoor elite for a comfortable stay. My wife did mention that she felt like the decision to approve or disapprove is already made before the interview,her interview lasted 10 mins. Stay positive and you got nothing to worry about.

Now we begin our next journey of life. Thanks to all the members who helped me especially Sangitha, Saylin, johna1 and all other members. Hit me up if you need help.
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
