Consulate Review: Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : July 22, 2008
Embassy Review : They did not ask her any questions at the interview.
She showed over 200 pictures from our wedding. We had our whole family at our wedding and friends (120 people)
I guess that was sufficient enough to prove relationship.
We had also 2 years worth of phone bills .
45 min
Next day visa, after 2 PM.

In some cases , like my friend's wife it took 2 days for visa to be issued.
Also, they asked her a lot questions about her husband previous marriage, but everything else wet good. ( I guess it was Monday - for consul had bad sex over weekend
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
