Consulate Review: El Salvador
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 24, 2020
Embassy Review : Wife had interview scheduled at 8AM. she arrived 30 mins before.
According to her, everyone was kind and accommodating in the waiting process.
We made sure all the paperwork required was in-line and accessible to provide when needed. (birth/marriage certificate, etc)

There was some waiting time, but the interview itself was pretty quick (5-10 mins)
a few questions about where we met, my family members' name, and how often we see each other.
she got approved on the spot, and now waiting for visa pick-up and eventually POE.
Rating : Very 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
