Local US CIS Office Review: Buffalo NY
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : March 5, 2018
Embassy Review : Though I've had to deal with the Buffalo office a few times, all of which have been great, I'll focus on the last visit - a naturalization interview...

I had an early afternoon interview time, and got to the office probably about 30 minutes early. Got through security, checked in at the counter (where they had some difficulty getting fingerprints - Buffalo in December...), and barely had a chance to make a quick trip to the bathroom before I was called in. IO stated that the previous interviewee was a no-show, so she was going to take me in right away.

Very pleasant interview, and within about 10 minutes I had my decision in front of me, along with an oath ceremony letter in hand. Walked out back to the lobby, where my wife was a little concerned about how quickly I was back, thinking that there was something going on. She later complained that she had barely had a chance to get settled in - but in any case, we ended up walking out of the office probably about 5 minutes after my scheduled interview time, this time for the last time from one of their offices (I hope...)

Great experience there as always.

I should also mention that the Syracuse satellite office has always also been extremely quick and courteous..
Harassment Level : Very Good
