Member Reviews:

Consulate Review: Islamabad, Pakistan
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : March 21, 2019
Embassy Review : Absolutely disgusted and shocked. Accused of marriage fraud. CO smiled and laughed at my husband's answer's. Couldn't believe its possible and acted like it was wrong to meet your spouse through social media. Even asked if he had ever been a refugee in another country! So upset over the treatment by the CO and the accusations of fraudulent marriage.

Did not get handed any 221g form or anything. Got told goodbye, we believe this is fraud and are sending back to NVC 😢
Rating : Very Poor

You can not appeal the decision. Our case, after almost 4 months since the interview, has just finally made it back to USCIS. Should never, in any way, EVER take 4 months to just mail off a case file from a US embassy abroad. I'm so disgusted.

Sorry to hear that. I also found it disgusting with my previous I-129F case. They told me that I did not mention something on my application so they accused me of lying. I talked to my lawyer and she said the question they are referring to is not even on the Application. My lawyer tried to reach out to them via an email with clarification and to get them to reconsider it's value, but no one ever responded back. Denied I have now reapplied for my spouse and waiting..... Very Poor and Disgusting treatment at Islamabad Embassy... SMH

Matter of fact, my lawyer sent two emails and no one ever responded back....

Yes it is very poor and disgusting of Embassy in Islamabad. To present all the evidence we did and still get treated and accused the way we were is discrimination in my opinion. The CO gets the choice in deciding...and it obviously doesn't matter if you supply evidence or not. There are no guidelines for these officers on conducting interviews and questions to ask. It is their personal preference. Since the last response on here, our case is somewhere. Not NVC and USCIS can't confirm or deny they received. And then they tell me they have up to 6 months to enter it in their system and up to 6 months to review it after that!! Its gonna be another year and half before we even get an interview and with the unfortunate luck of going through Islamabad, we will more than likely end up with a DS-5535 just because it's Pakistan. So another year or so of waiting just for that "questionnaire" to be processed. I'm currently searching for a country for him and I to move to bc this distance and wait is becoming too much. I'm tired of crying everyday bc he can't be here with me. Taking suggestions for countries for anyone willing to make any. Thanks

I suggest to save more evidence ex. Each time you go visit him, save all the receipts etc and take pics at different places with relatives and friends to prove bona fide relationship. Also, hire a lawyer who can guide you better. God bless!!

Thanks. We have been doing that. Even make sure i have different outfits for the trips so they arent the same in the pictures. Turned all that in as well. We will continue documenting everything. We also had a lawyer, and he dropped us after the denial at the interview, bc he doesn't continue working on the cases if there are denials or appeals. Thanks for the advice :)

Still waiting to hear from USCIS on the embassy's request for revocation. Been 465 days since interview and 275 days since USCIS received the case to review it. 😭😭😭

*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.
