Event Description
Review Date : April 14, 2006
Embassy Review : Mohammed ended up going 3 times to the Embassy to interview. The first time he forgot his CIB receipt so his interview was rescheduled at his convenience and he was given a second letter of admission and asked to return the following business day. On that day the worker at the window took his receipt, looked at her screen and told him he was done he could go. He said he still needed his interview, she said no he had to go. So he left and returned to his home to find a message from the Embassy. He was sent out in error and needed to return for his interview. He was told to call the Voda Phone number they use for this but he was given a terrible run around and it cost him a lot of money and he never was able to get his interview scheduled again through the service center. I had to have it done via email request. The Embassy graciously scheduled him and the interview finally took place. The Embassy is helpful, but I would not recommend attempting to use the Call Center/Service Center through Voda Phone. They cost over 1 LE per MINUTE and it is a very time consuming call if you can actually get anyone to help you.

*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
