Event Description
Review Date : March 4, 2009
Embassy Review : well finally got the visa... Im going to make this as informtive as bare with me. We left the hotel Celebrity suites at 530am for 7am thing because what could go wrong did {oh and hotel was great nice price 72.00 a night a very modern} so we have 20 minute drive and arrive at gate. When you first pull up it is a little itimadiating, chances aare you will be aproached by some guys in yellow "foto' jackets that will look at youre papers real quick I am not sure if they are a scam or not as I was not willing to take a chance with nt having a 10cent copy.So we walk across street about 50 yards to make a copy of one form and head to gate. By 640am the line was almost to steet as you stand in the main line workers in Majenta jackets will work theyre way down the line one will check form with photo glued to front{seems the photo we had was not acceptable as she marked with blue mark} back to photo center for new photos. We did not attach photo as lady had told us they would do inside the embassy. you will be guided to the apropriate line and given a green dot with number. You then wait for security to put you through the main gate to be scanned{they are supposed to take phone but I saw many inside} so m girl check brand new I phone {why she brought I dont know} at the check point. You then go into the "room' {guys its an open air shelter" very unstressful}. You then proceed through line to assemble all paper work ie w2 her bio info her birthe certificate, have these ready as we didnt and got brown folder {no big deal we still got ahead of other people who were there first} any how now the first part of waiting occurs. We waited maybe hour and was called by name to window fiance is asked for papers in folder and then I was called up and gave this years W2 and 2 current pay stubbs, and letter from work, now second part of wait. You now must have fiance fingerprinted this was amazingly long for how much time process took. About 45 minute later fiance called to window 6 ove loud speaker. Heres where it gets crazy THE ONLY QUESTION THEY ASKED HER AFTER STRESSING ALL NIGHT WAS WHERE IS FIANCE IS HE HERE. que youres truly We had many photos I only took last 2 months emails I had two scrapbooking books done{ yes I scrap booked} we took all photos out before we went up to window YOU ONLY HAVE A SPACE THE LIKE OF A BETTING WINDOW TO PUSH THIS STUFF THROUGH. So I go up to window and say ' whatsup" lady with handfree headset say "boy youre happy arent you" I said for this early at least I am awake, she laughs. She asked how did i meet fiance I say online she says what sight I say latin cupid she says ok How man times have you visited i said ah ah ah ...this is 6th trip I said you dont want to see my scrap book she says " If I didnt belive you she says problabu yes but no thats okay .she says where do u work as she is looking at the paper I say Papa Johns she says what do yoy do I say I am regional customer rep for notheast[what comes next is pricless} she says Oh my god as she pulls doen her glasses "you problby have more stress than me" I agree she says okay aproved Bye. Never have Ibeen so stressed out an hyped up and was unnecasrry. We went to courier paid the 55.00 and left... One thing take a pen...other than that dont sweat it.any questions shoot me an email and good luck ps we were out by 1115am

*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
