Consulate Review: Morocco
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : September 14, 2009
Embassy Review : Aziz had arrived very early and was instructed to give them his appointment letter, passport, and 2 pictures. Then he waited about an hour till his interview. As he looked around the room he noticed that there were a ton of people and he was given a number. First, he was interviewed by a Moroccan man that asked him a few questions, possibly 3 minutes and told him that his interview would be in English. Then Aziz waited for 20 minutes before he had his interview with the feared blondie. That made me worry, but he said today she was on her best behavior and that she was really nice to him and that he could understand her very clearly. She asked him these questions:

How you meet your wife? Who is her stepfather? Who is her biological father? How did you meet your wife? How is it that her father introduced you to her? How many times did her father visit Morocco? Is he married to someone? When did she visit the first time? When was the last time she visit? When was the first time you talked to your wife. Where did she study? Where does she study now? What are her hobbies? What kind of movies she likes? What are her favorite movies? Why did she stay in morocco so long without a job? He said that interview only lasted 10 minutes, but that she wanted him to answer her quickly without pausing or guessing or doing anything like that. He said that there were a lot of people waiting, maybe 100. After the interview was over, she laughed and said good everything is ok, you can come back tomorrow, your visa will be ready? She didn't even look at any of the evidence and Aziz seemed to be the king of evidence there. The best thing throughout this is that he got approved without any setbacks. He actually told me that he didn't have to pay for his fingerprints, that surprised me really, but it is what it is. Way to go Casa

*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.
