Comments : The frickin chinese biatch interrogated my wife. My wife was trying to update our address, etc, and the lady kept trying to trip her up with questions. My opinion is this - if you barely speak english you shouuldnt be working for immigration at the airport anyway. Anyway after 2 hours she made it through and we're home at last LOL.

Consulate Review: Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Review Topic: Direct Consular Filing
Event Description
Review Date : November 5, 2011
Embassy Review : The interviewing officer was very polite. He asked a few questions about how we met, etc but stopped asking after he figured out we already got a K3 visa, adjusted status, then moved overseas to work, had a daughter, and were going back home. He switched to re-check that we qualified for DCF by asking questions about my work contract in Saudi (open-ended), did we have specific plans back in the US (we bought a car last year in prep to go home), where all of our assets were (all in the US). He asked my wife about my ex-wife and children from previous marriage but we've spent a lot of time together so it was all good. In general, the experience with Riyadh was positive for us and they did not delay any part or hold up any part of our case.
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
