Consulate Review: Austria
Review Topic: General Review
Event Description
Review Date : October 9, 2019
Embassy Review : I was about 30-45 minutes late for my interview, as I thought it'll be in the Embassy. When I showed up there, the police officer informed me that Immigration visas are handled by the Consulate across the city, but the lady was nice enough to call them and let them know i'll be late. So I jumped in an UBER and off i went to the correct location, which doesnt look fancy at all. its literally a side entrance at the back of the Marriott Hotel, take the lift upstairs and then you are greeted by 2 police officers, that x-ray your bag and I had to give them my smartwatch.
The interview was short and with everyone I interacted that was working there, was genuinely so nice!
They didnt ask me any uncomfortable questions and didn't even wanted to see any proof of relationship photos.
As my medical was not ready, they gave me the "Refused" letter, but kept my passport. They only waited for my medical results to be delivered (same day), and then they printed my visa.
As I used to live around 3h away from Vienna, I decided for DHL delivery. I had my interview on Monday, they printed my Visa on Tuesday and I had my visa on hand on Wednesday!
Super fast and great consulate! No need to worry! Just make sure you go to the right location
Good luck to everyone else
Rating : Very 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
