Consulate Review: Mumbai, India
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : November 3, 2015
Embassy Review : I will not repeat the documents and process as it has been repeated many times, however I will briefly write about our experience. Several posts say they will not allow the "sponsor/petitioner/Husband/wife/us citizen" to go in with the beneficiary. Every Consulate and case and day is a different story, however I can confirm that when we attended I (US Citizen) was permitted to be by my husband's sided all the way up to the last interview. Our documents were all organized and categorized, and he carried 4 LARGE plastic see-through folders full of hundreds of pages and pictures. When his number was called for the last interview, I walked directly up to the window. The interviewer looked up startled and asked "Who are you?" I answered that I am the petitioner and wife of Wasim, and I have traveled here to finally bring him home to be a family after a long wait (and smiled). He told me to please sit down and he would call me up if he had any questions directed at me. I did so. So I smiled and said thank you and winked at Wasim. The questions were about 3 minutes and then he said approved and to pay the fee before entering. We were so excited!!! We did include the letters from 10 people confirming and also the stamped letter from the consulate when we were married the year prior. Such a long road!!!! So happy. We purchased airfare and arrived in USA a week after!

*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
