Consulate Review: Manila, Philippines
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : April 16, 2013
Embassy Review : 4/3/13 interview,
4/4/13 CFO Certificate,
4/10/13 VISA ready at 2GO MOA
4/11/13 Picked up Passport/Visa @ 2GO, CFO for sticker, Airport to USA,
4/11/13 in the USA!
No problems, there is 3 lines as you cross over Roxas, 1 for your time, then the second when your about to be called, then the 3rd before entering.

We waited about an hour, our appointment was set for 6:30am.
we entered in separate lines for screening, and then rejoined after screening.
We entered together, and stayed together.
We waited for our number, then went to the window for finger prints, and for then to find our case. then returned to our seats.
We waited for our number, then went to window 57 a Pinay interviewer, very nice, asked a couple of questions, asked me(petitioner) where I live and what I do, and where will we live, and then asked to see our album.
We returned to our seats.
We were called to window 67 and it was a very unemotional american interviewer, kinda an ass, he asked me to have a seat. He interviewed my wife, and then said nothing and told her to wait for window 72(?).
Didn't say pass or fail.
We waited for window 72, and found out we passed! Asked to expedite our visa, and was informed that we were suppose to ask the last interviewer, when interviewed.
We were told to go to window 70(?)for 2GO.
We were asked if we wanted delivery or pick up, we changed from deliver to pick up, since we had to return to Manila anyway (told it was a FASTER choice) since we had to return to the CFO for the Passport sticker, and the Airport.
I recommend this process over delivery.
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
