Embassy Review : The people are very pleasant to deal with. Rob rang them a few times prior to my interview and he also found them extremely courteous and helpful. Bring all your documents and enjoy the day! If you need any info on police certs or medicals, feel free to PM me and I'll do my best to help

Local US CIS Office Review: Columbus OH
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : April 10, 2006
Embassy Review : Success...and it only took literally 4 minutes!!

Our appointment was for 1:00pm, but we got there around 12:45 and handed our interview letter in. We were called by a young lady about my own age or younger at 12:55. We walked into the room with our 2 folders of documents and supporting evidence, 1 bag of cards, 1 large wedding album, 1 small wedding album and another album of miscellaneous pics.

She asked us to raise our right hands and swear that we were telling the truth. Then we sat down and she looked for my passport and Rob's driver's license. She asked was our address and phone number the same, she verified my date of birth and then asked how we met. Then she asked about 5 questions of the "are you a terrorist" page submitted with the I-485 and that was it! She said my Welcome Letter and Green Card would be in the mail in 3 to 6 weeks and have a nice day! I even said, "is that everything? Are we finished" and she said "that's all" Rob joked that I had told him this would take about an hour and she said "Not today"...maybe she wanted to get out into the sun!!

*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
