Consulate Review: London, United Kingdom
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : August 3, 2021
Embassy Review : Arrived and went through security, very similar to airport security. I was asked to open an app on my phone to check that it is real. I was also asked to take a sip from the drink that I brought.

Got to the reception 25 mins earlier than my appointment. I waited 10 minutes and then was assigned a number and told to take the elevator up.

I was then directed to where I needed to sit down, waited 30 mins before my number was called. They asked for my passport, birth certificate, marriage certificate, police certificate, and scanned the passport photo that I brought. They also asked for my marriage licence because I had uploaded this to CEAC as well. I scanned fingerprints, gave me a print out of what rights I have as an immigrant if I was a victim to domestic violence, and I was asked to sit back down.

My number was called again after 10 minutes. Took an oath and was asked the following questions:
- Did we get married online or in person?
- Where?
- How long have I known her?
- How many times have I visited her?
- How many times has she visited me?
- Is this my first marriage?
- Is this her first marriage?
- Any kids?
- Any kids from previous relationships?
- Are you going to be moving to Utah?
- When do you want to move there?
- Did you get a chance to read the rights print out? Any questions about it?

After this he said everything looks good and I'll get my visa in about 2 weeks. Gave me all the documents back except my passport which will be delivered with the visa.

3rd August - Interview
4th August - Status changed to administrative processing on
5th August - Status changed to Issued, got a text message with tracking info

*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
