Consulate Review: Jamaica
Review Topic: General Review
Event Description
Review Date : September 16, 2018
Embassy Review : Our interview was at 7am. We arrived on time and got in line. They took us out of the line and we waited until 7:30 because Junior didn't bring photo ID (his passport was already inside the embassy). Once they identified him we were inside the embassy by 8am. We sat down and they called his name after 15 minutes or so. The lady smiled and said ok I was just checking that you guys were inside and asked us to sit back down. I told Junior she seemed nice and he said yeah she just checking if we are here so she can go find that mean man from last time. And that's exactly what she did. He called us back up to the window and swore us in. He explained that we were there due to some inconsistencies between our file and the answers Junior gave at the 1st interview. He was empathetic and explained that petitioner interviews are not common and he understood this was burdensome to me. He then asked Junior to have a seat and proceeded to ask me the same questions he asked Junior during his 1st interview. But first he addressed my emails regarding my income and the co sponsor. He simply stated that although I met the income requirements the embassy can still use their discretion and require a co sponsor.
When did I arrive?
How long am I staying?
Have I visited Jamaica before I met Junior?
How did we meet?
Who us the mutual friend on Facebook we met through?
Did I know him before we became friends on Facebook?
How did I become friends with the mutual friend?
Have I ever been to his house?
An I staying there now?
What color are his walls?
How many rooms does he have in his house?
Have I met his family? Who and what are their names?
How many kids do I have?
Who lives with me?
Is it a house or apartment?
How many bedrooms do I have?
Does Junior have kids?
Why haven't I been back to visit?
Which one of my children was hospitalized?
He really was pleasant enough with me but I did notice a change in his demeanor when he questioned Junior. He called Junior back up and asked about our photos and chat logs.
What was the last thing we argued about?
How do we communicate?
Hr asked Junior what the tattoo on my are signified?
He said it seemed I knew more about him than he knew about me. I told the man Junior is just more nervous. He gave back my chat logs and photos and said everything looked good and he would be waiting for me to email the co sponsor information. I said I have that right her sir. He took it and looked it over and said approved. I explained that I am leaving Saturday and could Junior leave with me. He said let me check how far along your case is and then said yes and gave us a ticket and told us to come Thursday at 1:30 to pick it up at the embassy. The end............and also the beginning ❤🇯🇲

My fiance had an interview which he attended by himself on Aug 16th. He was given a 221g and asked to schedule a second interview which we should attend together.

Ohh okay got it ! But we don’t necessary have to go with them
blank avatar Jenny17655 on 2018-09-18 said:
Not necessarily. Especially if you sent in lots of evidence of your relationship and have visited more than once. The embassy wanted more proof of our relationship so they wanted to see me.

blank avatar Janique Pine on 2018-09-18 said:

*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
