Consulate Review: Algiers, Algeria
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : February 5, 2022
Embassy Review : My husband said that they were very nice and made him feel at ease. They asked him were and how we meet. What my job was and about my children. He was very honest and told them he knows that I have children and they know about him but he didn't know a whole lot about them because they are adults and have their own lives and he has never met them. Any question that he did not know the answer to he told them I don't know. It's very important that you are completely honest with them and that you have all your paperwork they need when you have your interview.

Hi! I was wondering if you wouldn't mind telling me why there is such an extended period between when NVC received your case and when you were approved? Just curious if you had issues with the Algiers embassy, and it's something we should prepare for?

Sorry for the late reply. It took so long due to issues with the IRS. Nothing to do with the Algiers embassy

*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
