Event Description
Review Date : January 3, 2017
Embassy Review : The embassy is at 4 hours drive from my home. My interview was at 12:30 so I started at 6:30 from home and reached there at 1130. Embassy was in embassies colony but to US embassy there is not any direct access of any road so I parked my car bit far from embassy and walked up to the gate with my huge folder of documents. when I reached on the gate three more people were sitting on the chairs outside the embassy as guards were not allowing to go in so I also waited there. At exactly 12:30 they called us to go inside they checked the interview letter and passport check the name in the list with them took car keys to keep it in th lock box and gave me a token for that. After that all my documents and belongings Scand from x-ray machine and guide me to a door. After entering that door another security guy asked me what kind of interview I have. I said immigrain so he gave me a token and told me to sit in waiting area to be called. Time was stamped on token it was issued at 12:45 till 1:00PM all the counter were closed. Exactly at !:00 p m they started to call at 1:03pm my number was called to go on counter#12 I went there a Bengali or Indian guy was there he asked my name, checked it in the list and told me to go to counter#6 when I went there no body was there inside, but I could see the documents which we sent before to NVC. After two or three minutes a tall Pakistani guy appeared on other side and said good morning, I replied the same (even it was afternoon). He started interview and it remained couninuied for almost ten to fifteen mintushe asked me

(He was writing something on a form with title visa assessment form)

I sat again and after ten minis I was called again on counter#13

Me: Because I am here
Co: Ok when you are planning to go to US

He was taking notes on his computer.

Then after five mins same Pakistani guy called me and said congratulation consulate officer has approved you now take this slip and go to samsa office give them your delivery address and pay the fees you will get your passport with stamped visa within ten to twelve days. And then he gave back all my original documents. I went to samsa office paid delivery charges and went back to embassy to give them airway bill and then got out of embassy took my car kes from the security gate and came back. Now waiting for status to become ISSUED which is still READY

*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.
