Event Description
Review Date : November 6, 2019
Embassy Review : First of all thank you for everybody helped me through this long process..
My interview was Nov. 5th at 07:30 am. I got there at 7am and there were already 2 lines. The security checked my interview letter, Aramex paper and the passport photos. I got inside the embassy and got a number at 07:40 am. At 9:10 my number was called at the Egyptian employee window and she was nice. She asked for my medical exam, passport photos, aramex paper, interview letter, the old police certificate, my original birth and marriage certificate and my husband's divorce papers. She asked me how we met, when we got married, how many times he visited me in general and how many times after our marriage, if I was married before, then she took my fingerprints and asked me to wait for my interview with the CO.. at 10:20 my number was called again at window 14 , a young cheerful American lady :
Me : good morning
CO : good morning "in Arabic"
CO: do you speak English
Me : YES!
CO : would you like your interview to be in Arabic or English k
Me : in English. She said PERFECT!
CO : raise your right hand, do you swear that all the information in your ds-260 is the truth ?
Me : I swear!
CO : who petitioned you ? What is his name ? How did you meet ? How long have you been married ? Did you meet his family ? Did they attend your wedding ? Who attended from his family ? Have you travelled any country for over a year before ? Where does your husband live ? What do you know about this state ? Do you have kids ? Are you planning to have kids ? He has 2 kids from his previous marriage, right ? How far from your house do they live ? What are you doing for living ? What are you gonna do in the US ?
She was typing on her computer then she said congrats! Your visa is approved and you will receive it within 2 weeks!

She was really nice and joking with me..

My status showed on AP for 2 hours then Issued!
Waiting for a message from Aramex to pick up my passport!

Good luck for everybody in this process!
