Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : June 4, 2011
Embassy Review : All i have to say that the guys in the oman embassy were very cool and nice, i think that i must have been their first interview for a IR-1 visa since they didnt even know what to ask me. I had my wife come over to muscat for the interview just in case but all they asked me was what i did in muscat and what do my parents think of marrying a white chick thats it and otherwise just some small take they didnt ask for any phone bills or emails or family pics nothing.
After talking for 10 minutes the lady asked her supervisor what should she ask more and he said nothing lol so she said congrats and hope u have a great time in the USA.

I dont come on this site anymore since i got my citizenship in less then a year and a half after i entered the states i guess in the fastest naturalized US Citizen ever lol. So just thought i would share my experiance with everyone else.Hope this helps.

*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
