Event Description
Review Date : August 16, 2019
Embassy Review : We got to the embassy 15 minutes before the interview, when we got there there was no line so we were able to come in pretty quickly. As the petitioner I just had to show my US passport. They didn’t let us take the cd from the medical exam with us, we had to leave it at the front desk and picked it up when we left.
Make sure that you are registered with passport delivery because that is the first thing they check once inside. It took us about 2 hours overall, the first 15 minutes they checked all documents and took fingerprints. The actual interview took about 5-7 minutes, there were only 2 windows doing interviews. One had a nice young co and the other had a lady who asked a lot of tough questions. I would say that as long as you come prepared you have a good chance of being approved. We only saw one couple get denied. Overall the experience was pretty smooth.

Good day did it really take two months after you submit your documents to get instructions for the next step

Yes I had an RFE about the validity of a birth certificate. I had to submit explanation of why it was valid. After that it was waiting for IL, all combined it took 2 months.

*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
