Comments : There was a long line for immigration/customs for foreigners. They made me wait, then once I arrived at the counter, he asked me if I knew what my address where I would be living would be. He told me I had 90 days to get married and then asked me if I had tobacco, alcohol or food with me. He then stamped my passport and let me go.

Consulate Review: Madrid, Spain
Review Topic: General Review
Event Description
Review Date : April 1, 2022
Embassy Review : My appointment was at 11:30 am, so I arrived 15 minutes early. I walked in without any issues and everyone was very nice and helpful. The only issue was that I couldn't go inside with my backpack, so I had to find a locker nearby to keep it during my appointment. The whole process took around an hour and a half including going through security, taking a number, giving all required documents, and waiting to be called. The actual interview process took around 5-10 minutes including an oath to tell the truth plus a few questions. At the end, the interviewer told me that it would take 1-2 weeks to process the visa.
1) How did you meet? Describe your love story.
2) Have you met the future in-laws? Do you get along with them?
3) When did we leave Germany? (this is where we met)
4) Where in the US will you guys be living?
5) What type of work will you expect to have in the US?
Overall it was a very positive experience - the only downside was the waiting time before the interview.
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
