Event Description
Review Date : September 13, 2021
Embassy Review : After 706 days after being DQ I finally got my interview. I've put a lot of stress on my shoulder for nothing ! The interview took about 10 minutes and I was approved. I arrived early at 7:20 AM, my interview was at 8:15 there was already 8 other people in line. The security guard first ask everybody who had an appointment at 7:30, 7:45 etc by 15 minutes bracket. One inside with the guard you have to show him your passport and then he confirms your appointment on his list and send you inside where you pass security. Had to remove my watch, my cellphone (and turn it off), belt, stand inside the X-Ray scanning machine then was instructed to deposit my phone in one of their lockbox and you keep the key.

Questions asked during the interview were routine and like what is my current job, what is my spouse job.
How did we meet ?
Longest stay in the US ?
Have I ever been arrested ?

He then said all my documents were good and he'd go ahead and grant my visa request. I was giving a sheet that point o the website where you schedule your courrier to get back your passport) and said I'd have my passport back in the next 3 to 6 weeks.
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.

** Not all cases are transfered
