Event Description
Review Date : February 28, 2017
Embassy Review : First of all i thank God and thanks so much for everyone who helped me in this whole process.
My interview was at 8:30 a.m and i arrived 8:10 a.m then after the guy outside checked if i have appointment letter and 2 pictures, he asked me to stand in the line for immigrant visas.
15 minutes later i have entered the embassy and given a number, 30 minutes later my number called and an Egyptian lady collected my originals she needs for the interview as i read here before i saw the package that nvc sent to the embassy and stole a look while she opens the envelope and saw that my application stamped as approved. So i relaxed a little bit.
1:30 hours later my number called again for interview and it was at window 14, found a very polite and cheerful American male in his 30s, he welcomed me and asked what languages i speak so told him both Arabic and English, then he started the interview by making me swear that everything is right and i did then, he asked me just 2 simple questions:
1. How and where did u meet your wife ?
2. When was it the last time you seen ur wife ?

After that, bingoooo he got a white paper and said congratulations ur visa has been approved and u can pick it up within 2 weeks.

But i think they already made a decision before the interview.
Anyway my advice to everyone is to be well prepared and just relax...
Thanks God and thank you to Visajourney members.
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
