Consulate Review: London, United Kingdom
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : May 11, 2022
Embassy Review : In the interview my husband was asked one question - how he met his wife.

A medical appointment was not available until the week after the interview. Was told everything was fine and would be Rejected until the medical results came in. Received a green sheet with that information. Was not told to email after the medical was done.

Confirmed with medical that it was sent to Embassy. Waited 2 weeks and emailed embassy with the "Contact Us" link and told they would be in touch if more information was needed. Waited another week and emailed again. Received standard email that would not respond if information was on the website or they had prevoiusly answered.

At 4 weeks after the medical was submitted, found the email on the green sheet and emailed. Case went into Admistrative Review that day. Following day, Visa was Issued.
Had we known to email after the medical the visa could have been issued 3-4 weeks sooner.

Congratulations, Hope you don't mind my asking, how did you receive confirmation of NVC receiving it? Sent the contact details over to NVC as this forum suggests but they responded saying the case hadn't arrived to them yet and they had no record. Any help greatly appreciated.

Congrats on yours moving forward! I was wondering how you received your case number from the NVC. I should have received mine by now but haven't.

*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
