Event Description
Review Date : April 6, 2014
Embassy Review : Hi Folks ! here is my CR1 interview experience in casablanca/ Morocco !!

I won't go into great depth as I'll be just repeating the many reviews already submitted.
My appointment was scheduled for April 1st / 8.00am and I arrived at 7.15 am ! Just as I walked up, the security guard said : all Immigrant visa Applicants appointments form a queue over there. So I joined that queue! we were about 3 people, but by 7:45 the queue had already quadrupled!

At 8:00 am the security guard let me straight through after checking my interview letter ( to verify if my name exists in the list of that day Interviews) , and then through the metal detector (checking for weapons I suppose LOL ) ,. after the security check I walked all the way round the consulate to get inside. Once inside , I went through a window where a Moroccan young lady asked for my passport , interview letter and 2 photos ! then they ushered me through !!

Once I was inside the building, there was another check point , I went through the stationary detector , and the security officer asked if I had anything to declare ( cell phone , laptop …) , so you’d better not to bring anything extra , just your paperwork and yourself :P

After that , I went into a large room with about 7 windows for people to conduct interviews , About 40 mins later my name was announced by a Moroccan lady to come to window 1 !!! she was veeeery nice and friendly , she returned some of the NVC and Original docs and asked me to give her all my NEW docs and phone number , then she asked If I had already traveled abroad ! where ? when ? and for how long ? is this our 1st marriage ? and which language I would love my interview to be in ? !! she then said to have a seat and I would be called for finger printing later . Oh and then with a huuuuuuge smile she wished me good luck! :yes: :wow:

After 10 mins , I was called for fingerprinting , and I sat back down again !! my name was re-announced after 15 mins for the actual interview ! the CO was a very sweeeeeeet , adorable American lady , Made me swear I was telling the truth, then asked me few questions :

how did you meet?
How did he immigrate to the USA? And when ?
What does he do?
Has he ever visited after marriage ?
When did you get married?
Have you ever had trouble with the police LOL ? :o :innocent:
What does he do in his free time !! hhhh I expected that Question !!!

Was out of there by 10: 15 am !! the interview was very smooth , pleasant and so much easier than I expected ! I really couldn't have hoped for a better experience !! And I can't believe that we have been APPROVED! yaaaaay :dance: :dance:
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.
