Consulate Review: Finland
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : October 31, 2007
Embassy Review : The Embassy paperwork was rather outdated, but the embassy processed our paperwork VERY quickly. They usually return emails (getting ahold of them by phone is difficult!) within 2 days.
The interview was non-existent and they basically just asked what day we got married and how we met.
Rating : Good

*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
