Consulate Review: Sweden
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : February 13, 2020
Embassy Review : My husband is a Lithuanian citizen, living in Norway, and was interviewed in Sweden for his visa (as they handle all of Scandinavia). So we were definitely worried about making sure that we had all the correct documents and translations into English, but in the end all was accepted without issue.

His interview was scheduled for 8am and he got there maybe 15 minutes before that time, went through security, and had his documents looked over by the first lady. Then he was seated and waited for his interview. When he was called up the officer was actually training someone else, and the trainee was more nervous than my husband!

They asked a few simple questions such as how we met, how we communicate, and what his family thought of his move. In less than five minutes, she handed back all the paperwork and photos my husband had brought (minus the passport) and told him he was approved. All in all, he was in and out in less than two hours. We're awaiting delivery of his passport to Norway, and she said that while the standard answer is "two weeks," it usually takes much less time to show up. Hurrah!

I just realized that posted seven times. Sorry about that I was in Tunisia when I posted so I guess it went crazy.

*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
