Consulate Review: Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina
Review Topic: Direct Consular Filing
Event Description
Review Date : February 6, 2009
Embassy Review : Husband and I went to the interview together and everything went pretty smooth. We submitted documents, then waited for our turn. The embassy lady interviewed me only, while my husband was waiting in the hall behingd. I was surprised when she started asking me questions in the local language since I was ready to speak in English. The whole conversation lasted for some 15-20 minutes with questions such as "Where did you meet?, "Where will you stay?", "Where is your husband's family?" (for some reason she thought they were Bosnians). In the end she said:" Well, good luck in the United States. You can pick your passport tomorrow afternoon."
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
