Event Description
Review Date : January 3, 2024
Embassy Review : My wife and I went to embassy for CR1 visa in Peru. Traffic is very heavy next to embassy with almost zero parking available. (Better to uber). Huge line for tourist visa, but for immigrant visa very short line. After waiting an hour, was called into main building, to wait another hour and a half in the chairs. They scanned her fingerprints twice. They asked for birth certificate (original, not photocopy), marriage certificate, i864, tax transcripts, all three police certificates. They reviewed all the documents. After another 15 min waiting was called into room for interview. Had to show many pages of proof of marriage, officer was impressed I spoke Spanish (my wife is peruvian).It really helped that I was at the interview with my wife. There were many people who received yellow 221g letters. Most for missing divorce decrees, photocopy of birth certificate, missing medical exams and police certificates. We were approved, but the officer asked a few basic questions. Said we will receive news in a week to pick up visa from courier. Will have 6 months from medical exam date to enter usa. Also seemed like alot of the tourist visa line was being rejected by their reactions, seemed very strict at this embassy.

Hi, I'm about to have my interview in Peru next month. Question did you update your police certificates? Also did they tell you, you were approved there on the spot?
BlakePeru on 2024-01-09 said:
Yes, uploaded new police certificates from a few weeks before interview, make sure you uploaded new ones to ceac (all 3). Yes, the officer said my wife was approved on the spot. Had interview last Wednesday, still waiting for visa to be issued so we can pick it up, but I expect it will be ready by end of the week.

Oh, such good info. So I'll get my police certificates again and re upload them! Thanks for the info!

Hey Blake, another question has your wife gotten your passport back yet? How long did it take?
BlakePeru on 2024-01-18 said:
It's been two weeks since interview, got email today it's ready for pickup so she will pick it up tomorrow. I learned the passport is ready for pickup only 3 or 4 business days after it's been "issued", you check the status on ceac after interview. Took 8 days to be issued after interview

*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.
