Comments : There was a very long wait in the immigration line at this POE which caused my husband to miss his flight. Even with a 2 hour stand by! He was able to catch the next flight which re-routed him to Atlanta and then finally to Houston where he was greeted by me, my sister, Harry Potter, and Spiderman--they're secretly my was really Halloween (lol)! :)

Consulate Review: Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : September 21, 2009
Embassy Review :

The interview lasted about 30 minutes. There was the American Consular Officer and a Vietnamese Translator in the room. There were a number of questions asked regarding our relationship and the details of it. The Vietnamese translator asked some other questions and made comments beyond what the American Consular Officer.

We were given the blue slip to submit the additional requested information by Friday, July 3rd, but later called with an amended date for Wednesday, July 8th--probably because July 4th is an American Holiday.
Rating : Moderate

*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
