Consulate Review: France
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : December 7, 2007
Embassy Review : Five stars to the embassy in Paris!..
IV appointments start at 1 pm, but the guards will let you in if you are a little early - so no need to que in the cold (or rain). If you brought food/drink/any electronic equipment with you - it will be checked in and you can have it back on your way out.
I got inside a waiting room and took a ticket (my place in virtual line, I was first). I was called to the windows three times:
1 - turn in my ticket number and appointment letter.
2 - hand in one by one all the documents listed in packet four. I was also asked to show my French residency card - Titre de Sejour. The lady was French and very nice and thorough. She seemed to be surprised that I had everything right. laughing.gif I was also asked if I or my husband have children and if we had previous marriages.
3 - interview with consul. I was asked 5 questions: How long have you been married? How long have you known each other? How did you meet? What is you profession? Why do you want to live in the US?
My answers were found satisfactory wink.gif
I was not asked to show ANY evidence of ongoing relationship, although I brought in like 6 pounds of it. I am sure the consul saw my many folders... and made a wise choice not to get too close to it laughing.gif
She said "we have everything we need to approve your visa, you will receive it in 7-10 days and do you have any questions?"
With that we happily parted our ways...
Rating : Very Good

POE Review: Detroit
Event Description
Entry Date : 2007-12-23
Embassy Review : Go to Special Processing Lane (#37) to avoid the crowds (NOT visitors or citizen's lane). Friendly POE officer, ~5 min for paperwork... He told me the stamp in my passport will serve as GC for 2 years
(And the actual GC will eventually show up).
Harassment Level : Low

*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
