Event Description
Review Date : August 2, 2021
Embassy Review : The interview was really simple. I was asked some general questions like what my husband does, where does he live, when did he visit me, if we went on any trips, if I have met his family, where his family lives, if I have any family other than him in the US. And that's it, she gave me a card that says how to collect my passport and said I was approved. 
I was freaking out about the interview, I had one whole day of meltdown before the interview. But it went so smooth. As many people say, interview is the easiest part of the whole process.
The CO was very nice. She made it seem like a conversation rather than interview or interrogation.
Rating : Very Good

Congratulations! Is interviews for married based immigration happening regularly now? Did you meet other people coming for interview there? Just curious(anxious actually) as I am waiting for approval.

Sorry for the late response. Yes our embassy was only taking interviews of immigration visa applications. There DV lottery and spouse visa interviews only the day I went for my interview.

*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
