Consulate Review: Manila, Philippines
Review Topic:
Event Description
Review Date : May 18, 2010
Embassy Review : She had a very fast and easy interview. She went to the first window for her prescreen and talked to a very nice Filipina who only asked 5 or 6 questions. She only asked for our photographs. Merlaine waited about 30-45 minutes for her number to flash for the interview with the CO. The CO was very friendly and only asked about the same questions as the prescreener. He only looked at the photos as well then told her she was approved!!
Rating : Very Good

POE Review: Detroit
Event Description
Entry Date : 2010-06-11
Embassy Review : Merlaine got through with no problems at all. The officers there were very friendly and the actual process was very quick. 2 other international flights landed at nearly the same time as hers so it's was crazy busy, which was the only real hold up. It took her appx. 2 hours from the time she touched down until she was done
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
