Consulate Review: Egypt
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : October 31, 2007
Embassy Review : This consulate took longer to get me the Packet 3 then the USCIS took to issue NOA2. I don't know what's going on with the Cairo consulate, but they take forever on some cases, and act quickly on others. Inshalla the rest of the process will go smoothly
Rating : Very Poor

*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
