Najee only got nervous when it comes to the Filipino Consul as he asked if he has a Police Clearance for Indonesia since he stayed there more than 6 months. He explained that he didn't need to have one as they were on sea and did not stay on land. As per the consul, it looks like she knows how seafarer career works so all good.

He was sitting most of the entire time unlike when he was applying for tourist where they were standing all the time. He was done in 2 hours appointment at 0840.

*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
