Consulate Review: Frankfurt, Germany
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 21, 2016
Embassy Review : I was very nervous the week before I had my interview.

All I can say is, that it was a pleasant experience.
Everyone was very friendly and helpful.

The interview was quick and painless. The nice consul talked to me in German but switched to English once or twice. He even joked. The interview was more like a chat between friends.

I brought a binder with all of our documents which was absoulutely not necessary. I got an E-Mail from the Visa Unit asking me to bring my original police certificate to the interview because I sent them the copy only. No one wanted to see the original.

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.

** Not all cases are transfered
