Embassy Review : IR-5 Visa for Parents of a USC

We left the Marble Arch Holtel at 7:30am to walk to the Embassy. We got there at 7:45am and there was already a very large line waiting to get in, it was also raining...

We got to the first check point and had to show our interview appointment letter and our passports, we were then sent to Security Screening and had the backpack with our copies of everything x-rayed. We were then directed to Immigrant Visas. There was far more people going to the non-immigrant visas than were in our section.

We were given a number ticket 18407 (the numbers started at 18400) We then took a seat in the waiting hall, it was very busy even at 8:15am. Our appointment was for 8:30am so we knew we would have to wait. We sat there for about 50 mins and then our number was called.

We went up to the first window and the man explained that he would be checking that all our papers were in order and he would do our Fingerprints. He went through all the papers for both of us and said everything was there, he then did both of our fingerprints (thought I was going to end up with black fingers like you see on the TV but its all done electronicly) He then told us to take a seat and we would be called for our interview soon.

At 9:55am we were called for the interview, Our interviewr was a very young american lady. She explained that we were not to answer each others questions and then we had to take an oath to tell the truth. The officer first asked me (The Mum) " What does your daughter do for work?" and she then asked my husband "How old was your step-daughter when you and your wife married?" She then handed me all the original documents that we had sent to NVC, she then gave us both our chest x-rays and said " CONGRATULATIONS YOU ARE APPROVED, WELCOME TO THE USA" We were both amazed that it was over so fast, I actually said "Oh is that it?" we were directed to the courier desk to pay for the delivery. We thanked the officer very much and went to pay the fee for the delivery of our passports abd the brown envelope.

We were outside by 10:15am, both very happy and relived it was all over. We have to thank our daughter for dealing with all the paperwork, all we had to do was sign were needed. So for us we will be arriving in our new home on Aug 7th..
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
