POE Review: Houston
Event Description
Entry Date : 2015-02-26
Embassy Review : Houston was a very big airport. When I arrived I immediately went to the line that was designated. The line was long. When I got to the counter I handed my passport to the official. The biometrics was at another counter and the packet of papers {yellow envelope from the Embassy} at a different window. It all took about 1 1/2 hours to finalize everything. The officers were a little rude to some people and to each other as well. This airport was confusing and a bit complicated. But now I am done....thank you Jesus!
Harassment Level : Moderate

*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
