Consulate Review: London, United Kingdom
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : August 10, 2019
Embassy Review : I got there exactly 30 mins early because they advise you will be turned away if earlier. The queue to get into the embassy took 20 mins. Then there was another queue on the ground floor, but they called my name out and I got to jump it.

I followed directions to the immigrant visa waiting & interview area, and was called to a standing booth within 10 mins of my appointment time to hand over documents and answer a few basic questions.

Then back to the waiting area for about 45 mins / 1 hour, until I was called back to another booth for some questions about the relationship with my wife. Was pretty brief. Both trips to a booth were with very friendly, smiley people on the other side.

My last interviewer said everything looked good and they could probably get my passport back to me with the stamp by next week (it was a Friday morning).
Rating : Very Good
