Comments : Interview

The process was smooth and simple. Waiting times weren't half bad, pretty straight forward.

My fiancee was there with me but he wasn't allowed in the actual interview. The consul invited him in just to say hi and then asked him to leave.

I started the interview by swearing I was telling the truth and having my finger prints taken.

The consul was serious but proper and professional, not at all rude.

He asked me how we met, when and where. How the relationship developed, how we decided to get married, what we do for work and what our plans are for this year.

I chose to speak English, answered thoroughly and directly and that was it.

It took me at most 5 minutes. He congratulated me, said that my visa would be ready in a week and that was it.

I'm flying on the 7th, entering through Huston with my boy. Wish me luck!

Houston was great as a poe. Simple and quick. No harassment

Event Description
Review Date : February 20, 2019
Embassy Review : We arrived at the time of our appointment. They made us go straight to the Paso 1 to "check in". From there, they sent us to Paso 4 for finger prints and straight to Paso 5 (waiting room) were we took a seat and waited for 5 minutes before a lady called us from a Ventanilla to ask us for a few papers we missed on our P3 (co sponsor's BC, origina passports, original BC and confirmation page for DHL).
There were three other girls waiting for the same interview. We were sent back to the chairs and asked to wait patiently for the consul to call our name.
We ended up waiting probably half an hour tops.

*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
