Consulate Review: Egypt
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : December 9, 2009
Embassy Review : First thing to do when approaching the Embassy; is to talk to the man at the door and tell that it is for immigration purpose. There is definitely another line and much shorter.

The procedure I understand was that She went inside on one line to submit the interview papers and passport and photo etc. Here this lady :
took the most recent Police Certificate (even though she said that the existing one from past 4 months is valid until a year);
took the passport photos;
returned to my wife all Tax forms except for the year 2008;
and, took my divorce certified papers (even though I already submitted it in NVC process).

Then she went on another line to get fingerprint done.

Then she went for her interview.
Same questions as we have been hearing from others:

1) How did you meet your husband? Through her Uncle here in USA
2) Did you immediately accept the proposal? He came one time to meet the parents; then one time for engagement; ...and so forth
3) Where did you go for honeymoon? Only Cairo due to finances and vacation time constraints
4) Do you have any wedding photos with family members? She gave her the whole bunch of electronic printouts of digital photos

That's it. The interviewer said Mabrouk and that the VISA will be mailed out via DHL to her home.
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
