Consulate Review: Jordan
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : April 27, 2009
Embassy Review : He arrived 30 minutes early for his 8 am interview, and had to wait in line to go through security. After he got inside a lady met him to take his medical package and asked for his original police certificate and passport. He went to his waiting area and shortly was called to give his fingerprints. Then he waited and waited and waited for 3.5 hours, and finally got called to talk to a male CO who asked him;

How did you meet your wife?
What does she like?
What do you know about her ex husband? Why did they divorce?
Where does her daughter live? Who else lives there? What do they think about your marriage? Did you meet any of them?
How long did she stay with you in Jordan? How long did she stay the second time she visited?
What does she do? Where does she work... is it a hospital? He had to explain to him a nursing home when he couldn't remember 'nursing home'.

Amer told me he looked at the pictures a lot and asked about where we were and who else was in the pictures with us at the wedding and so forth[his different family members].

Then he said "congratulations Amer, you've got your visa" he was looking at Amer's passport then and said, "Oh, I'm sorry, it looks like your passport expires in 5 months, you'll have to update it before we give you your visa." Then my husband said no I just updated it and they put it on a different page and showed him where. Lucky for us we caught that beforehand. So it was ok, and they gave him a paper and said go pay for the delivery it should arrive in 5-10 days. He went to a different room, paid for aramex delivery and received his passport with visa on April 27th and 7pm.

*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
