Consulate Review: London, United Kingdom
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : April 19, 2021
Embassy Review : Interview - 19th April
1. Entered the building - showed passport and appointment letter.
2. Sent upstairs to first floor and waited for number to be called.
3. Called to window and asked for civil docs, passport and a photo. Also took fingerprints.
4. Called to next window for interview with a different officer to the first one. Asked general questions about when I met my wife, where we plan to move, why we’re moving etc. We had a joint sponsor so he asked who my joint sponsor was and where he lived. He then couldn’t find my wife’s tax returns on the system (even though all were uploaded). Then he said that whilst your wife has lived in the UK with you for the last 4 years she is still required to file her taxes and we need proof of transcript. I said that she filed by paper retrospectively a few months ago and because of covid the IRS have not processed them.
He then went to speak to his boss. He came back and then said you need to ask her to provide a signed statement saying this.
I was then issued with a 221g. This was uploaded shortly
Everything else was fine and they kept my passport.
Just waiting for the status to change from refused to administrative processing.

POE Review: Newark
Event Description
Entry Date : 2021-05-22
Embassy Review : Immigration queue was short. The immigration officer saw my visa and took me to the secondary room. The secondary room was hot, dark, loud and hadn’t been updated since the 80s. Behind the screens were approx 12 CBP officers. All drinking coffee and laughing and joking with each other. Only two guys on the computers actually reviewing cases. Approx 10 people in the waiting area. It took 20mins.
My name was called out and I approached the screen. The CBP officer grunted and pointed to my mask. I assume that meant to take it off. I took it off and he looked at my visa, stamped passport and threw it at me. No goodbye no welcome nothing. Literally threw it at me.
Such a horrible welcome to the US.

*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
