Review Topic: Direct Consular Filing
Event Description
Review Date : January 2, 2008
Embassy Review : We got one email and two letters in the mail that said our interview was 02-JAN-2008 at 08:30 so we arrived on Jan 2nd at around 7:30 and waited.
Come about 10:30am all the windows were closed and everyone else who was waiting had finished, we started wondering what was up. Asked one of the guards and they said that these interviews happen at 7:30am not 8:30.

I went to the counslar window in another area of the embassy and explained the situation. She went and talked to the people in the visa section and vola. We walked right up, did our thing. Handed all the papers they asked for, this took maybe 10 or 15 minutes to get done. Then we went and paid for the visa apps 2x$355 and I also had to pay for the I-864's 2x$45 once that was done I handed her the reciepts and she said have a seat and they would call us in to the interview room. Before we could even sit down they called us

The interview was done in a room all by ourselfs which was nice. They asked us questions (mostly my wife) and took her biometrics.
Just general questions, where did you meet, how long have you been married, whats your husband do and so forth. Then he asked me about my job, what I was doing here, when we are going back, how long I've owned my home and so forth.

He smiled and handed us a ticket and said to come back at 4:00pm to pick up the passports with visa's.
Rating : Very Good

POE Review: Houston

Embassy Review : All went well, we got thru the US citizens line really quick almost no waiting.
Then they took the wife and baby to a room I was made to wait outside the immigration area.

About 30 minutes passed and she came out. Everything was fine she said they were very friendly and they only asked her a few questions like our address and phone number. They said we should get the greencards within 7 months and to let the USCIS know if we haven't gotten them in that time, and to let them know if we move.

No mess, no fuss. But I was on pins and needles while waiting

*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
