Consulate Review: Nigeria
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : February 23, 2018
Embassy Review : I arrived at the US embassy at 6am as my interview was scheduled for 6:45am. Long queue was formed by the security at 6:30. Then after the security checks we went inside the interview hall. Nonimmigrant separated from immigrants. Take note of the number written on your appointment letter because you will be called with that number by the CO. Once all your documents are complete let confidence ride you. After thumbprinting they returned some of our pics and documents we submitted during Nvc stage that they did not need. And they will hold your passport. 

Next is to wait till your number is called for interview. Here are some of the questions the CO asked me:

1. Co: good morning with smiles

2. Co: who called you?

3. Co: how and when did we meet?

4. Co: who was the mutual friend on Facebook? Cos I said we shared same mutual friend on Facebook. Pls make sure u dont make mistake. And be sure of what u say.

5. Co: what was our discussion after we met?

6. Co: what she does?

7. Co: where she lives?

8. Co: how many times she visited Nigeria?

9. Co: she visited once and we got married? I said yea cos in the 5th question I explained our discussion and it includes our marriage plans.

10. Co: where did we get married?

11. Co: how many ppl attended our marriage? Give approximate

12. Co: can I see your pictures? Show her the album.

13. Co: who are the witnesses to the marriage?

14. Co: have I lived in another state in Nigeria?

15. Co: where was that?

16. Co: OK your visa is approved.  Smiles. Thank you ma.

Just be sure of your answers. I dont think anybody was denied that day except those that were asked to provide additional documents. Visajourney really helped me a lot. Thank you guys

*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
