Consulate Review: Islamabad, Pakistan
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : May 24, 2010
Embassy Review : All in all it was a good interview experience. The CO was very very friendly and she only asked me 3 questions. Took me only 2 minutes for the interview to be completed. I was there for a total of about 3 hours. Didn't receive any AP!! which was a true miracle as almost 99 percent of males receive AP but I was lucky enough to be spared. The only thing to remember is to bring a lot of proof just in case, be confident, and always hope for the best. Good luck!
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.

** Not all cases are transfered
