POE Review: Atlanta
Event Description
Entry Date : 2010-05-08
Embassy Review : Atlanta is a very big and busy POE. I understand CR-1s take a considerably longer time to process than K-1s because of the additional upfront paperwork that has to be processed for GC, etc. I guessed I would have to wait maybe an extra hour or so, but was surprised by a three hour wait instead. He said there were no problems per se, but the process is incredibly slow and there were just so many people. His flight was booked to capacity and there were of course many international flights landing in ATL.

Advice? Maybe pick a day other than Saturday and plan to wait a long time. Reuniting at the end makes it all worth it of course.
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
