Member Reviews:

Consulate Review: London, United Kingdom
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : November 18, 2022
Embassy Review : Went quite smoothly. Arrived half an hour before my interview, and as others have mentioned, skipped the super long queue and went straight to the entry desk. They scanned my DS-260 and passport and put me through the TSA-style security screening.

Afterwards there was the reception that gave me a ticket number and told me where to go. When I arrived there, I was very quickly called to a window for document check and biometrics and told to wait for the interview.

Wait was about 45 minutes and I was called to a window. Interview took maybe 3-5 minutes, questions asked where roughly "When did we meet", "Where are you staying in the US", "Who's your joint sponsor". Very straightforward.

They did have an issue finding one of my documents on their system and thought I didn't upload it, but when I said I did, they looked for it for 5 minutes, found it and told me that it's all good and I'm approved.
I got my civil documents back and told my passport should be couriered within 5-10 working days.

Exit is the same way as entry was, through the elevators. I saw a few people confused looking for the exit as the signs are not very clear.

Overall very good experience,
Rating : 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
