Local US CIS Office Review: New York City NY
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : July 26, 2022
Embassy Review : We got downtown a couple hours before our appointment, which was on 20th July 2022 at 12:55pm at the Manhattan Federal Plaza Building.

Clearing security was a walk through with no queue, and staff there were professional but friendly. We arrived at the building 20mins before our appointment.

We went up to the 7th floor where we were guided to the desk, where they asked for appointment notice and passport, asked if we wanted a translator or had a lawyer with us (both answers were no), and a picture and fingerprints were also taken. Once all details were added, we were given our paper back with an “O” number and told to wait near door 2.

After reading all reviews, my spouse and I were expecting a wait time between 1-3hrs, however we were very surprised (and lucky) to be called in just 5mins after our appointment time at 1:00pm.

We went in and were asked for our appointment notice and both of our passports, then for our birth certificates and marriage certificate. After which my spouse was asked for her divorce from previous marriage. Then asked for any joint documents we had, we didn’t have that much as I had not received my EAD or SSN prior to the appointment, so we just brought joint phone bill and joint health insurance. The officer was friendly and said she understood why we didn’t have more joint information since I hadn’t received my SSN yet. She then proceeded to ask my spouse and I around 7 questions each, mostly about the kids, how we met, birth dates, parents etc etc., all easy to answer if a legit couple. She was professional and respectful. Then asked questions from my AOS form, the part where you answer no to around 20 questions (the legal part). No updated I-864, pay stubs, employment letter, tax transcripts or recent photos were asked for, which we were surprised about, however we did have a RFE for the I-864 and supporting documents which we did respond to around 4months before so this may have been recent enough for them.

Overall a very positive experience with good staff and a smooth process at the NYC branch. We were out by 1:20pm, so only a quick 20mins interview and made the most of the rest of our day in the city.

Around 24hrs later, we received our approval and as of 25th July our card had been produced. Finally can’t wait to work 🙂 and have green card in hand!

*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
