Consulate Review: Ghana
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : March 23, 2014
Embassy Review : After all this waiting and review of our documents on 3/7/14, finally we get our visa. I attending my husband's interview which wasn't much of one. She basically told us since our case was a reaffirmed. There was no other questions to ask and since our paperwork was in ordered. We should pick up on visa on Friday. The most important thing is when you receive your visa and you are married for more than two years, please make sure that Consulate makes a note of that on your visa. My husband and I noticed that and waited an additional four hours to make sure our status from CR-I to IR-1. Just make sure you look at your visa to make sure everything is correct. Other than that everything was good.
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
