Consulate Review: Argentina
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 4, 2019
Embassy Review : Everyone at the embassy treated us very well, and helped explain the process as we entered. As the petitioner, all of the embassy staff were pleasantly surprised to see that I came for my husband's visa interview.

However, we ended up waiting about 5 hours in total at the embassy. We weren't sure why the wait was so excessive, that was not communicated to us. Further, everyone went on an hour long lunch break at one point, and all windows were closed. Our interview was scheduled for 8:30 but ended up being at about 12:45. There were no visible clocks in the waiting area, I was only able to see a clock from one of the interview windows.

The interview itself was only about 10 minutes long. All reasonable, easy to answer questions. We were then told my husband was approved and he should have his passport returned shortly.

The 3 star rating is really because of the excessive wait and that no employees told us or the other 10 or so people waiting when to realistically expect to be interviewed.
Rating : Moderate

*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
