Consulate Review: Amsterdam, Netherlands
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : March 20, 2024
Embassy Review : Positive experience. Everyone was very helpful and efficient. The Embassy collected our documents and then we proceeded with the interview for ~10 minutes where she asked 5 simple questions like "What do you do?", "Where will you live in the US?", "How did you meet?". There was no difficult questioning or interrogation. We have been together for 6 years, and had been living together when I was on a work visa in the US, so I had a previous US visa and a social security, which may have helped the process.

We had a police certificate from a country that coordinates and sends directly to the embassy prior to the interview but the embassy did not have it on hand during the interview. Because of this, we were issued a 221g for missing this police certificate. We thought this would cause a delay but the embassy was able to locate the documents 20 minutes after the interview and our case was approved shortly after on the same day. Visa was issued exactly 1 week from interview date.
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
