Event Description
Review Date : August 2, 2013
Embassy Review : First of all, I and my family give thanks to our God that cannot fail, and we want to to say a very big thank you to very support on here, I might not ask questions, but I learnt a lot and have advice friends wanting to migrate to the US about how informative this site is. Thank you so very much.

My appointment was for 7am and I got there 6:05am, at 6:15am they called for imigrant visa for 7 and non imigrant for 6:30. At 6:45am we finally where been called in. To short the long but eventful day short.

I was in the waiting room with others for more than Four hours, at a point a guy was been interviewed for more than an hour by an old American man, the man is very lenient, using every opportunity to help the man understand his questions.

When it was 11:43, my number shows up and it was from this same old man, he had conducted 4 interviews and 1 person was not approved, and the last person spent 25 mins with him (they are two people, guess they are husband and wife).

My turn came and I just went there with a smile on my face, since every one has been going there they will use the telephone to talk to the man, I just use my audible voice and the man said its working now.

The questions:
Who is your petitioner
Who is Wanda
Who is Rachel (that's to deceive me in a way to believe my petitioner as a name that I don't know)
Has she ever been married?
What does she do?
Does she have any child? To which I respond "we have one together now", and he ask for our daughter birth certificate, and he showed me the scan of the baby my wife filed in and ask if I have seen that before, I said yes.
Then he ask if I had pictures of her? That's where he can't ask questions again, cos he had more than enough.

He just said go and pick your passport so so so place and have fun in America.

The whole questioning time was 3mins, 45sec.

Thank you and God bless you. Yours too will happen soon and you will share your testimony

*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
