Consulate Review: Jamaica
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : December 7, 2008
Embassy Review : Well guys my husband got his visa!!!!!...sooo excited and ecstatic all at once...well here is the run down of the event...

He was scheduled for 7:30am...he went through the metal detectors and a CO checked his name and took his interview letter...he was given a number and was told to sit down...he waited about 2 to 3 hours before his name was called...when he went to the first window a lady asked him for his medical records and his passport pictures....she also asked him for his visa but then gave it back to him...he was then told to sit back down and someone else will call him in about 5-10 mins....he was called within 10mins by another lady....she did his fingerprints and she asked him the following questions..

When we met
When did we get engaged (he told her we never did the engagement thing just started planning on getting married...I'm not sure if that was a wise thing to say in my opinion)
When did you get married
Do we have any kids together
Were either one of us ever married before

And then she asked him if he had any pictures and he showed them our pictures...he said she did not say anything while looking at the pictures and he said she looked at all of them...

She then said ok and gave him a white slip which she stamped the date on it (thought it was suppose to be pink) and told him were to go to pay for the delivery of his visa....she also kept his passport....she also made him sign on some form...he said it was like a stack of forms but he only had to sign one part...he also had to write his passport number and address on a yellow piece of paper....

He had to pay $750JA for his visa and they took the white paper the lady at the embassy gave him and then gave him a receipt and told him that he can pick up his visa next week Wednesday in New Kingston...

Overall he said it was ok...the lady wasn't rude but she wasn't smiling either...he also said it was jammed pack in there...He said most visitor visa people didn't get through but majority of family visas got through except for those who were missing something....

Thank you Jesus that this is finally over!!!!!!!

*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
