Local US CIS Office Review: Atlanta GA
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : January 27, 2020
Embassy Review : My appointment was at 745, but we left the house at 645. What was meant to be a 30 min drive was almost 50 mins (THANKS TO ATL TRAFFIC🙃) LOL, we arrived at the office and went through security check first, it was kind of like airport security check. The officers were super friendly and professional. Definitely eased the tension. Once we were through the security check we had to check ourselves in, they asked for my appointment letter and my ID. They took my photo, finger prints and gave me a number. We were told to wait for our number to be called. By the time we sat down it was 7:37. Our number showed up on the screen indicating we were going to be called next, so we moved and waited at the door. We were called after 10 mins of waiting. The officer was pretty strict and professional. LOL, I walked in and asked how he was and almost sat down and he was like no don't sit yet. He asked us to raise our right hand and asked us if we swear to tell the truth. The man said very little and did a lot of typing and flipping through our paperwork. He asked for my BC and my husband proof he's a citizen. He then asked my husband how we met. After that he began checking boxes and dating them. (One box actually said approved by interview) LOL, but he continued with the questions. He asked when I moved to Canada from the US. (I lived in America for 10 years when I was younger) I told him I had documentation for it and he said he didn't need it. He asked my husband what he does for work, then asked me if I work. He looked up at me and said I see you have some photos, I didn't bring much only about 10, he just basically skimmed through them. He told us that our case was actually one of the easiest cases he's had to deal with. After some more typing he asked me if I have ever been arrested and explained I was approved and I'll be getting a 2 year green card with steps on what do after the 2 years. I asked if he needed any of my supporting documents and he said he has all he needs in our file. We were out of the office by 8:20. Got an email that new card was produced at 8:30. The actual interview took about 20 mins. There were probably about 12 couples all together including us. I thought it would be packed considering ATL's long wait times. But, I figure it was because the office opens at 7:00am.

Harassment Level : Very Good

Hi Irush93. Did you call NVC to check if they received your file? I tried calling NVC but the number is always busy.

*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
