Event Description
Review Date : September 25, 2009
Embassy Review : My fiance got his visa! Now the details: We were told to arrive at the US Interest Section at 7am. Fortunately, we were there shortly after 6am, because around 6:15 or 6:30, they began reading lists of names and having people line up in order. I don’t know how that would have worked if we had not showed up until 7am. Around 9am we got inside the building. Around 10:30 we were called to the window to turn in the paperwork and then pay the cashier. Next was the fingerprinting. Then a long wait while around us others were being seen but we waited and waited until the waiting room was almost empty. We eventually found out that the people waiting for fiance visas were seen last.
At 1:30pm, we were finally called up to a window to be interviewed. We stood at the window, a frosted glass partition separating us from the waiting area. The interviewer was friendly and asked us a few questions: “Tell me about yourselves. How did you meet? Where will you live? What are your wedding plans? What are your work plans? This was a brief interview, lasting 10-15 minutes. Then the interviewer entered some information into her computer. When she was finished, she said “That’s it. Your visa is approved." She said that he could pick up the visa on Wednesday or Thursday. But we went back the following day, Tuesday, and it was already ready.

*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
