POE Review: Chicago
Event Description
Entry Date : 2009-04-29
Embassy Review : It looked like the first immigration officer did not know about the brown envelope that we received the instructions from the U.S. Embassy was about. He kept asking for the pink folder that we did not even get acquainted. However, the documents inside provided enough information that he later sent us through the second immigration officer who conducted the fingers-printing and also stamped our passport regarding our 2-year conditional status.

Process took us around one hour to complete. Then, he sent us to the customs to have all of our bags x-rayed.

It will be a little bit challenging for the non-English speakers to encounter the Immigration Officer at the first time.

You should allow at least 2-3 hours for the connection flight via Chicago if you arrived here the first time. All international flights arrive at Terminal 5. Then, the visitors must take the electric trains outside to travel to Terminal 1 & 2 (United Airlines) or Terminal 3 (American Airlines) to connect the flights to the destination.
Harassment Level : Low

*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
