Event Description
Review Date : February 12, 2008
Embassy Review : My husband arrived 30 minutes before the interview. He and another man were waiting, they were told to form a line outside of the embassy. At 7:30 am, they entered. They waited a while until they were called. My husband was interviewed by a white man--very nice, spoke a little, broken, Arabic. My husband would reply in English, but the man spoke to him in Arabic anyway. He asked him how we met and whether he spoke English or not. When my husband reached for the evidence he'd prepared for weeks, the CO told him it won't be necessary, they had everything they needed. [we sent pictures and notarized letters from family and friends with the I-130] After that, they took his fingerprints, then he was asked if he understood everything that was on the paper before he made his oath--he said "yes," we had read it together before hand. After that, he payed for DHL and the CO told him that he would receive the visa after 14 days, "Welcome to the US."

Thankfully, we didn't wait longer than 9 days to receive it!!
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
