Event Description
Review Date : November 25, 2019
Embassy Review : So all of the horror stories online are scaremongering tactics.

I had my interview today and I had literally nothing to be nervous about.

I went and I was an hour early so I grabbed a coffee to calm my nerves. I went back at the time I was told to return and I bypassed the not so long queue (my interview was at 11.30, so I guess this wasn’t peak time).

I was so nervous I hadn’t realised my number was already up at the booth and I has to go to the bathroom to throw up. I calmed myself down and went ahead to the booth. The lady who served me was really nice, demure. She took my paperwork asked me a few questions and then told me my paperwork was fine and to wait for my number to be called again for my interview.

I would say I waited probably no longer than an hour to be seen by the interviewing officer. She was a bubbly, bright spirited soul. She had a good energy. She asked me to swear on oath that all I told her was the truth.

She immediately brought up my entry denial, which I was dreading. Instead of making me feel worse she joked with me about it and I relaxed immediately. She only asked me questions about my fiancé job and whether I would go back to work there. She also asked if I liked the city I’m moving to. She asked me a total of 4 questions and granted my visa. I was in the booth for less than 5 minutes. I cried when she said my visa was approved.

I should receive my visa within the week.

Don’t read too much into what is said online. The officer will know if you and your relationship is genuine. So just be cool and don’t work yourself up into a frenzy like I did.

Good luck y’all!!

*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
