Interview 10/17 @9:00

Found the embassy really easily. People outside asked to see ds160 and told me to
Head back 10 minutes before my appointment as rules had changed. Went back and got in, went through security all of whom were happy and cheerful then went up into the embassy and got diverted to second floor where I had to speak to someone. They asked for birth certificate, proof of money(as I self sponsored) and email confirmation. They then took fingerprints and scanned the passport photo into the network for the visa. He was happy and really easy to talk to. Went and sat down for 5 minutes then got called up for a second time where a different person asked me how I met my fiancee, when we first met in person and other journeys that had been made between us. We did the pledge (tell the truth and nothing but the truth...) then he smiled and said that he was more then happy to grant the visa. He said it would take between a week and 2 weeks or 10 working days to receive the visa. It was a really pleasant experience and everyone was always happy and polite. Overall the whole interview took about 20 minutes.
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
