Consulate Review: Islamabad, Pakistan
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : May 21, 2019
Embassy Review : My wife was approved today at Islamabad Embassy. The questions she was asked were:
1. When did you get married?
2. Was it an arranged or love marriage?
3. What does your husband do for a living?

Then the CO looked at a few wedding pictures that showed our entire families and a couple of selfies. The CO smiled and said thank you and kept the passport. For some reason, my wife forgot to ask if she was actually approved. When she went back to give new passport sized pictures, my wife asked and they said we are approved.

She had to go back and give new pictures because the ones she had were slightly blurry. She said they were asking most of the people to get new ones and there was a place right outside the embassy to get new ones.

Thank you to all on VisaJourney that helped us get here. Looking forward to starting our new life together. Good luck to everyone else!!!

First of all CONGRATULATIONS on the approval of your wife's immigration interview. If you don't mind answering few questions, I would be grateful.You are one of the ones who got approved on the day of the interview. Mashallah. 1. On the visa she got on her passport what was the time limit she got to travel? Is she suppose to travel within 3 months or 6 months? 2. Were you living in States when she had her interview or were you in Pakistan? 3. Did you submit the tax transcript? Your answer would be highly appreciated.

*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
