Event Description
Review Date : June 14, 2021
Embassy Review : Overall, the experience was good. Our appointment was at 8:30 am, we arrived at 8 am and they let us through security early. We went to the 2nd floor to check in and given a paper explaining how they wanted the documents organized, and then we were sent to the 3rd floor. There were a lot of people already there waiting. We were first called up to submit our documents and then sat again to wait to be called up for the interview. The officer that did the interview gave my husband the option to do it in Korean or English (we chose English) and was understanding when my husband made a little mistake (because of nerves). The questions were mostly related to our relationship, plans for relocating to the US, and the petitioner's employment. The whole process took about 2.5 hours from the start of our appointment time. The interview itself took less than 10 minutes (we submitted a lot of supporting documents).
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.
