Consulate Review: Nepal
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : April 2, 2009
Embassy Review : Govi said all the applicants had to be there at 1:00 and then each one drew a number which was the order in which they were interviewed - Govi was #1 Govi spoke in English but asked to clarify a couple of things in Nepali. He said the CO was very friendly and the interview only lasted 10 minutes - he asked how we met, when did we get married, and for clarification of my earlier legal name change 6 years ago. We had a couple of red flags - we married quickly after meeting and I am significantly older than Govi - but the CO did not even bring these matters up. He was very impressed that Govi had organized our evidence nicely in a notebook and spent a couple of minutes looking at our photos - he said from the smiles on our faces it was obvious we were truly in love. Govi called me at 6:00 AM with the happy news. JAYA NEPAL!!!!
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
