Consulate Review: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : August 3, 2019
Embassy Review : Everything is straightforward, as the previous reviews mention.
My interview was scheduled for 8:20, I got there at 7:45 and was interviewed by 9:30.
You get in, go to the area for Immigrant Visas, they give you some form to fill out (contact information of where you live in Brazil, your petitioner address and phone, where you are staying in Rio) and a list with the documents you are supposed to have with you. Most documents are the ones you already sent to NVC.

People say the photo is not necessary, but there was a woman there that the CASV didn't send the photo to the Embassy (I think because her photo didn't look good for their standards, something about her bangs being on her face) and she had to give some of the photos she brought, so it is always good to bring everything, just in case.

After checking the documents, you wait for the interview. Mine was extremely fast, she was nice and friendly and asked me: How I met my husband and when, how many times we saw each other, then she asked some specifics related to my case (I lived in the US to study). Then case was approved!

*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
