Event Description
Review Date : January 27, 2020
Embassy Review : My appointment was for 7:30, got to the embassy at 6am, joined the queue and finally got in at about 8:30am.
got attended to at 10;20am. Was interviewed by a white dude. He asked
Who is petitioning for you?
Her name?
Where does she work?
How did you meet?
how do you guys communicate?
Where does she stay?
How many siblings does she have? Have you met them?
How many times has she visited?
Where does she stay when she gets her?

Said he'll be giving me a visa, and that was it. Entire interview was like 5 minutes, and he didn't ask to see any documents.

Have you recieved your. Visa yet?
blank avatar Jade20 on 2020-02-02 said:
No I haven’t. Hopefully get to pick up my passport tomorrow.
CaylinObinna on 2020-02-05 said:
Will you please update us when you recieve your visa? And let us know the issue date on it? I hear the issue date is supposed to be the date of your interview or the day after. I guess the issue date is important in relation to the ban coming into affect. I'd appreciate it! Congrats again! We will join you soon in aproval!

*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
