Consulate Review: Israel
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : June 2, 2022
Embassy Review : Had an early morning appointment and arrived 30 minutes before. Was called up to the first window to give document that was requested prior to the appointment and the women was very professional and let me know that if anything was missing the consular would notify me but also stated that everything looked good.. Sat back down and waited a few minutes until I was called to the second window for my interview with the consulate. I can’t say enough but she was the nicest person and made me feel very excited about my interview. She asked a couple questions about how I meet my wife, what are my plans, and just a bit about us. She informed me that my visa was approved and that would receive my passport in the mail within 1-2 weeks and that I was free to go. The whole process from checking in to leaving was about 40 min in total. My experience was great and I can’t wait to fly with my wife back to the states.
Rating : Very Good

Hi, how many days did it take to get results from med exam?
Mimilu on 2022-07-24 said:
Medical exam results were sent digitally to the embassy by the doctor, we never received it personally.
blank avatar AlIu on 2022-07-24 said:
Thank you! Then how many days before the interview did you take your med exam? I just want to understand how many days I will have before the interview.

We got it done about a month before our interview date

*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
