Consulate Review: Argentina
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : June 13, 2024
Embassy Review : I arrived at the embassy 20 minutes earlier than my appointment and there was nobody in line, seems they were not performing tourist visa interviews that day. Once I got past security, I was led straight into a room with booths and given a blue folder to put my documents in order (current passport, expired passports, photo, birth certificate, police certificate, delivery confirmation, evidence of relationship). I was first in line so about 10 minutes later they called my name, took my fingerprints and took the aforementioned documents. No financial documents or anything else were requested (everything was uploaded to CEAC) but it's still good to bring them just in case.

After handing over the docs I waited another 10 minutes and they called my name again to a different booth. I took an oath and was asked quick and basic questions about my spouse (how/when did we meet, how often did we visit each other for the last couple years, if either of us had been married before, what my partner does for a living, where does she live, whether she lives alone), the interviewer smiled and said the visa was approved, handed me back everything except my current passport and said I should receive my visa soon! After this, the visa status changed to administrative processing for a couple of days, then issued, then it was shipped and I received it a week after the interview. I spent less than half an hour inside the embassy.
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
