Member Reviews:

Consulate Review: Guangzhou, China
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : May 22, 2023
Embassy Review : Professional and efficient. Wife was asked some questions, not too much. Early in the interview, it was pointed out that a page of the notarized Chinese wedding certificate was missing a page! DISASTER!!!

Wife was so flustered for the rest of the interview, that she even forgot to show the officer our nice photo album

Officer was a woman around 30, professional and had a good poker face. Wife honestly did not know if she was going to be approved or rejected. Left with a 221g to send in a new marriage cert with all pages. We sent it in 10 days later, checked the status on CEAC obsessively, and 3 weeks later it was issued. Happy ending.
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
