Consulate Review: London, United Kingdom
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : September 26, 2008
Embassy Review : Kris got there early was second in line - the process went very quickly - he was missing one paper that was thrown at him out of nowhere, but did the interivew, got a blue slip to just send back the doc with my signature and a I864a showing his assets as a sponsor -

They were very efficient, but again, had we known from NVC that they felt me being self employed and would requre our docs from house sale and etc etc, it would have been rated a 5

People are great tho - hopefully visa issued next week.

Rating : Good

POE Review: Atlanta
Event Description
Entry Date : 2008-10-15
Embassy Review : Just super easy - Kris went to vistors line with cat in bag lol - and they say the mysterious envelope and he went to counter, they took envelope checked passport and said you will be processed downstairs - absolutely sweetheart Kris said, went downstairs, directed to end desk where they check bags and handed paperwork across - sit down five minutes and wham bam done - only concern they had is if he had cat food lol - doh!

Fingerprints done, told about lifting of conditions and signed forms and went off to check papers for cat - just a superb entry to his new life.

Harassment Level : Low

*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
