Consulate Review: Ghana
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : October 25, 2019
Embassy Review : My husband arrived at 8am for his 9:30am appointment. He was called for finger prints and to present original and supporting documents to a ghanaian lady according to him with no smiles or eye contact but he didn't pay her attention because we already read about her. Was later called at 1:15pm ish for interview and qtions asked were

How did we meet
What work does your wife do
Do you have kids with wife

And that was it. CO said I'm approving you and congrats and was given a white sheet with details to create account for passport pickup in three weeks at DHL. It was a long wait however it came out successful.

I thank all VJ house members, your comments and timelines were very helpful to us. I Pray all will also have a successful visa journey. Let's be patient and pray for each other. And please let's try to update our timelines so it can help others. God bless.

*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
