Event Description

Embassy Review : A couple of comments
-Phones are allowed to go in the embassy.
-Be prepared to wait a couple of hours if you're not the first person inside.
-Very easy and smooth proces.

I had my appointment at 14:00, I got there at 13:30 but had to wait until 13:45 to go in. We were one of the first people there, but a lot of people were closer to the gate so they were inside first once everyone was allowed to go in. I had to leave my bag at security, but could keep my phone, book, wallet and documents with me. Then I had to take a ticket, and wait for my turn. Once it was my turn I had to go to a window, and hand over all my documents and have my fingerprints taken. Then I had to go sit down again and wait for the interview: A LONG WAIT, so be prepared for that. Once it was my turn for the interview, it was very quick. He asked me some general questions:
-how did you meet? When was it?
-How much do you talk?
-How did the proposal go?
-What do you think about his parents? What do your parents think about him?
-What's his favorite food?
-What kind of music does he not like?
-What are you gonna do about the wedding?

The guy who did the interview was very friendly, as well as all the other people who work there. After a short interview, which took between 5 and 10 minutes he told me everything looked ok and that my visa was approved. Then he explained how long it would take for the visa to get to me by courier.
Rating : 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.

** Not all cases are transfered
