Consulate Review: Ankara, Turkey
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 8, 2024
Embassy Review : Interview was scheduled for 830am -- it took all in all about 2.5 hours for it to be finished. There was a pretty long wait. They had a printer there in case there were documents that you forgot to bring and could print out really quick. No electronics at all are allowed inside so make sure you leave it at the hotel or in your car. The interview itself was really chill. I chose to do it in english. Interviewer was really laid back and we had a good connection. He was making jokes and we just talked basically. When it finished I was given form 221g because a form was missing from my CEAC page, I uploaded it right after the interview and my case was then approved a day later.

We are a CR1 visa. Husband is a Germany born Turkish citizen. I am both a Turkish citizen and a US born U.S citizen. I did send multiple expedite requests in. All of them got denied.

Did you file everything on your own, or use a lawyer? I am about to start the process and am from the US and live there and my spouse is from Turkey and lives there.

We filed everything on our own. I moved to the USA about right after we filed the first thing with USCIS, I did this so that I could create a domicile and also get a job. We were separated for about a year while waiting. No lawyers, no expedite, I had a co sponsor just in case, but it turns out that I didn't need it. I went on multiple trips to see my husband, we brought about 50 photos with us to the interview along with pics from our engagement party and kiz isteme. multiple photos with family and friends. we brought ticket stubs from trips we took together. I had my husband take EVERYTHING with him to that interview

Hi ? I am having some difficulties with my husband's civil documents. For example: birth and marriage certificate, these documents are still rejected by NVC, I was wondering what did you do to get these documents accepted by NVC? Thanks in advance.

*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
