Consulate Review: Frankfurt, Germany
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : September 7, 2022
Embassy Review : First of all - Thanks to everyone who had updated their timelines and experience in VJ. It helped me to prepare and complete the whole process in a breeze.

To start with I had my medicals in Frankfurt on August 4th 2022.
I had an appointment at 10:00 am, Everything was good it took total of 2 hours

Step 1: Enter and get the number from receptionist and move to the first floor.

Step 2: Wait to be called and Submit the form, interview appointment letter and answer basic questions ( Medical history, chicken pox etc). Get photographed and understand the next steps.

Step 3: Go to the basement for blood, urine and X-ray collection and come back to the first floor

Step 4: Wait to be called for personal medical checkup by the doctor: Checking vision, lymp nodes, reflex check etc.

Step 5: Asked for any pending vaccination and go to basement for vaccination

Once vaccination was done, the doctor said everything looks good and told all the details are processed online and she told it would be sent to consulate in 2 days. I mailed them on 6th August and they replied saying the details have reached consulate.

Interview day September 7th 8:00 am:

From the experiences shared in this site, I knew the exact steps.

Step 1: I reached the consulate by 7:30 am. My wife and I came to Frankfurt a day before ( yesterday Sept 6th) and stayed in best western hotel which is right beside the consulate.

Step 2: I carried only my wallet and my file to the consulate, there was already a line with around 15 people. It took 20 - 25 mins to reach the windows where they asked my passport and gave the sticker and number and asked me to go to window 22 once I reach the main window.

Step 3: I moved to the security check since I didn’t have any electronics, it was smooth and moved to the main building.

Step 4: I walked directly to the window 22, there were only 3 Immigrant applicants before me. In the Window 22, the officer asked for my passport , one photograph (2x2) with my full name written behind and my Visa delivery registration page. He asked me to wait in the lobby and told my number would pop up in the screen and the window.

Step 5: I sat for 5-10 mins and my number popped up for a window and the officer there took my bio metrics, personal details & collected my original documents - birth certificate, marriage certificate, police certificates and my wife’s W2. He explained me the next steps, explained about the visa and stuff. I wanted to change the address in the US and asked him if I can change there. He got the new address and updated it in the system.

Step 5: After the document collection, I was asked to wait in the lobby again for the interview. I was called in 5 mins to a window where a officer greeted me and asked me to take an oath that everything I say is true. She took my biometrics and confirmed my name, DOB etc. She asked me basic questions like
how did you meet my wife?
How long do you guys know each other?
Where does she live?
Are you planning to move there?
When are you moving there?

She told everything looks good and she will be approving my visa today. I am still waiting for the status to update! Fingers crossed everything should be fine.

I entered at 7:45am and was out by 8:45 am.

Documents I prepared:
1) Original Birth certificate
2) Original marriage certificate
3) Photograph (2x2)
4) Police clearance certificate ( all the countries)
5) Passport
6) Appointment letter
7) Passport delivery registration.

Other documents which I carried along
1) Tax transcripts 2021,2020 and 2019
2) W2 and 1099 for all these years
3) My wife’s passport copy
4) My wife’s birth certificate
5) All copies of the originals carried
6) My wife’s lease agreement
7) Our relationship pictures - travel history etc.
8) Other documents.

I hope I covered everything. Prepare and over prepare the documents. Everything will be a breeze.

All the best everyone!

We filed K3 as soon as we filed our I130. We believe it helped our process.

*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.
