Consulate Review: Jamaica
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : April 7, 2018
Embassy Review : My husbands interview was Friday April 6th at 7:15 am. We arrived about 6:30 and joined the line (spouse petitioners are allowed) all ladies should be advised that there are so many things from your purse not allowed inside, this includes cell phones, make up, compact mirrors, certain ink pens, inhalers...ect. so basically all that I had in my purse was money/credit cards and ID. Once inside you are given a paper with a number and you wait for it to be called. Once called to the window, you will be asked for your original documents and copies that were given to NVC and documents that were requested from you (if any) the first CO will take the documents and ask a few "pre interview questions" My husband was asked who is calling for you? Is this your first marriage? Is this your wife's first marriage? We were then asked to be seated and wait to be called again. The second time you are called up by name. Once at the window the man asked was I the spouse petitioner? And asked us to raise our right hand to swear we are going to tell the truth. The real interview begins.... the CO was a young looking Indian gentleman. He asked my husband:
Where did you meet?
What was your wife doing in Jamaica when you met?
Who was she with?
What does your wife do for a living?
What is her best friends name?
Who proposed and how?
How many kids does your wife have?
What are their names?
How many kids do you have and how old are they?

CONGRATULATIONS YOUR VISA IS APPROVED! Gave him a paper about his rights in the United states...You can pick your Visa up within a week.
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
