Consulate Review: Bangladesh
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : May 19, 2015
Embassy Review : Me(beneficiary) & my wife (petitioner)went there at (11 am )for my 12:30 interview but the stupid guard told me to come back around 12:15 PM, because too many people inside. I was pissed but again it was just 1 hour 30 minutes and i had my car. so i went back to my car slept for a while LOL .but my wife was so worried inside car,she was pissed seeing me sleeping .

OK! so than I went inside they checked my interview letter,passports,and inside my file,and asked if she(my wife) is the petitioner than let us in. Once we were inside I submitted my interview letter on the desk in front of interview doors.Than waited like about an hour to be called at door number 3, the lady asked me simple questions like,

1. Who applied for you?
2. who is the petitioner?
3. Why did you go to Malaysia & Dubai?
At this point she gave back my Birth Certificate and all additional papers we submitted at NVC,also gave me an instruction paper saying I need to file for Adjustment of Status after 2 years but kept original Marriage Certificate and Police Clearances.also asked me to give original latest police certificate of Bangladesh.
Than took my fingerprints and asked me to go back to seat .

SO I went to my seat with my wife ,we waited like about 3 hours 45 minutes thinking all the negative things in the world, and I was called on door number 7 ,this time. American guy speaking fluent Bengali with hard to understand accent through the mic. He was very nice but the questions he started to ask wasn't nice at all.all the hard and stupid question he asked
1. Who applied for you?
2. What does she do in USA?
Than he said he needs to verify my left hands index finger.
4. Is this the first marriage for both of you?
3. How did you meet?
4. DO you have any marriage pictures?

stupid question he asked are :

1.the university you studied in Malaysia was near beach ?

2.did u complete your graduation in Malaysia when u were in honeymoon ?

3. why did you get Dubai police certificate ?

4.why are you in bangladesh?

5. why you had 2 wedding ceremony ?

6.spouse visa is for the couple who are away from each other.you guys are already together. why should i approve you?

7.you graduated as software engineer.why did you worked in HR?

8.why you guys have no kids yet?

9.why your brother in law is sponsoring you ?

10 .did you petition for your brother

and also i asked almost 30+ question to my wife. i dont even remember.becaz i was totally lost and gave up all hope. i thought .im not gonna get the visa.
i have never heard from any one experiencing such a long interview .
Than he went back somewhere looking for the slips may be he ran out of them, now here is the exciting part, He ISSUED MY VISA!!! ticked the issuance box and the delivery time box on the white slip. He told me to come back and collect my passport, I asked him again, Does that mean I am approved? He said first thing in English, YES! The whole thing took around 5 hours.

Than Came out happily...hope you all find this helpful. Thank you very much for your support throughout this hectic period of time.

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.
