Comments : Delay for interview has been because of waiting to receive CNCC (police clearance) for my fiancee from Honk Kong.

Had to postpone the interview to wait for the Hong Kong police clearance. They finaly completed and sent to USEM on 21 Oct 2016. It should be good to go in fiancee's records by 16 Nov. HK did not provide us a copy.

At USEM interview on 16 Nov. No HK police clearance. Provided USEM interviewer emails from HK police stating date mailed and postal tracking number. Interviewer stated it takes 4-6 weeks before they'll receive it. We have been approved, however they still require the HK police clearance to make our package complete. Our status was Administrative Processing and we are not required to return to the USEM. Fiancée and daughter left their passports so visas can be affixed. notified.

28 Nov status changed to Ready.

1 Dec status changed to Issued.

8 Dec, picking up passports/visas.

9 Dec, CFO process.

21 Dec 2016 MARRIED (at last!!!)

Consulate Review: Manila, Philippines
Review Topic:
Event Description
Review Date : August 6, 2021
Embassy Review : Although the petitioner's presence is not required, I could definitely tell my being there had a definite positive impact! My fiancé was extremely nervous and stepdaughter (17 yrs old) was very engaging with the questions. The official and I were very chatty and my stepdaughter jumped right in like a pro! I believe our family dynamics went VERY far to make our case. Because of the distance I traveled, Maryland to Philippines, my presence and support was the highpoint of the highly successful interview. I made a great decision in going there AND I surprised my fiancé by showing up and supporting our effort.
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
