Event Description
Entry Date : 2008-05-31
Embassy Review : It took me only one hour and a half to get through, the most part of this time I was in looooooong line to get to the oficer who checks you passport and visa, after he checked my passport he opened the yellow envelope checked everything was enclosed inside, put stamp in my passport, and led me to the special room, I set in there and waited for another 15-20 minutes, after the lady who worked there led me to another room asked me to sign twice and took my right finger's fingerprint
after that I was let to go to pick up my laggage and 5 minutes later I was in my husband's arms

*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
