Event Description
Review Date : May 11, 2010
Embassy Review : Hi my beloved VJ Members, to late to post this but could still help little bit for those who will have their upcoming interview. Our interview with my daughter was a great experience and it went really so smooth.
Interview date last May 07, 2010 arrived at 5:30 in the embassy, was a lot of people waiting outside, anyway then minute after calling those schedule at 6:30 for interview and the security guard said that prepare your appointment letter and ID. Then waited for about 30minutes, oh should not bring any electronics with you. So almost 6:00am they let us fall in line so they could scan our bag, then just follow the blue arrows and go straight to their ticket both where they gave you your queue number and prepare your Appointment letter. Just a minutes after then they started flashing numbers by the way they will not call out your numbers but instead just look on their screen coz its where they gonna flash your number if what window you are.
So my number flash on their screen and went to window 1 for pre-screening, so this lady ask my daughter first, Her Name, Age, and Date of birth then ask me my Name, Age, Date of Birth, Birthplace, Husband's Name, Age, Birthdate, When did we get married? How long he stayed in the philippines? and How did we meet? then she ask for our chat logs, emails, remittance and 15 pictures and gave it to her. So told us to wait till they call our name for finger scanning, it took us almost an hour till they call us up. But anyway after the finger scanning just 5 minutes after then number flash to go to window 33 for the final interview. So went inside the room and greeted Good Morning then the CO greeted us in tagalog,
first he ask my daughter's name, age, and birthdate then ask me after, so he ask
Who is the petitioner? When did we get married? Husband's Birthdate and My Birthdate and gave me back the pics, chat logs, remittance and emails which i gave to the pre screener earlier and just a second after he smiled and said Congratulations Your Visa is Approved!!! Of cors i smiled and said Thank You So Much so went outside and waited till my name is called to get the pink stub and pay the Air 21...
Left the embassy around 8:30am :dance: :dance: :dance:

Didn't really expect would be this fast, so thankful that prayers really helps a lot. Thank You Lord...
And of cors my VJ members, this site really helps a lot. Thank You So Much Guys.. :thumbs:
Good Luck for those who will still have their interview, really there is nothing to be worried about as long you have all the papers needed and the secret is always wear smile, be presentable, be confident, be BEAUTIFUL and most of all be YOURSELF... :thumbs:
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.
