Consulate Review: France
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 22, 2020
Embassy Review : My interview was scheduled for 8.30 AM today. I arrived at 8 and stayed in a line (outside) until 8.30 when they started letting us in.
First : security check
Second : first (quick) document check
Third : documents submission (they only took originals of my civil documents : birth certificate, marriage certificate, divorce decree, police record) + biometrics
Fourth : actual interview - super friendly and easy going.
Questions :
1. Where are you currently working? What kind of job is this? ("it will be super easy for you to find work in the US")
2. What is your husband doing?
3. When did you meet and how?
4. How many people were attending your wedding?
5. Where did you like to live better Paris or Zagreb (my hometown in Croatia)? (I think this one is just to chat while he is processing documents lol)
He said at one point, everything looks perfectly fine and your visa is APPROVED. You should be receiving your passport within a week (which I know usually takes way more )
I was out of the embassy at 9.15 so all process took 1H15 (or 45 min if you don't count outside wait time)

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.
