Local US CIS Office Review: Salt Lake City UT
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : March 12, 2020
Embassy Review : We arrived on time and went through security. We waited 5-10 minutes and we then taken back to the offices for our interview. First we reviewed all of the paperwork we had submitted 5 months before. It was intense watching my husband have to give an oath like he was in court but after all of the serious business (which I didn’t expect) we just got to talk about our relationship with the interviewer who was kind and actually seemed interested in us. He asked good questions, my favorite was, “out of all of his family members, who is your favorite and why?” And then asked the question in reverse to my husband. At the end he told us he would be able to recommend us.
Harassment Level : Very Good

I just wanna ask why it took them more than 2 months to approved it? Do they not approve it on the spot right after the interview anymore? I’m from SLC too. Thanks

Great question. They did approve us on the spot but he told us we would be RFE’d because he was missing some vaccinations that his doctor never game him back in Argentina. Normally you get RFE’d before they schedule your interview so I don’t know what happened. After getting “approved” we had to wait almost a month just to get the RFE notice in the mail and then it took a week or two to get an appointment with the right doctor and then about a month and a half to process the “evidence” we submitted (the immunization record). Ours was just a weird situation getting RFE’d after/during our interview.

*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
