Consulate Review: Peru
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : July 17, 2011
Embassy Review : The interview process was a non-threatening, comfortable experience. We waited a long time outside and then before initial contact inside. We were in the embassy about 5 hours total. There was a long line when we arrived in the morning. We went to a couple windows to pay and present our initial documents and answer a few questions. Everyone was bilingual and let us choose English or Spanish. The interview itself took place in the closed room (Window 15?). We were in there for about 5 minutes (but the other immigrant visa interviews we saw were taking 15-25 minutes) and they asked two or three questions about our transition back to the US and then wanted some details on who the co-sponsor was. We were DCF-ing -- had been married a year, living together almost two, so we were sent on our way very quickly. They didn't ask to see the supporting evidence of a bona fide marriage. We had already presented financial co-mingling and friends and family affidavits with the I-130, as well as photos. Overall, a great experience. And I would include the two trips for presenting the I-130 previously as good, low harassment experiences too.
Rating : Very Good


POE Review: Miami
Event Description
Entry Date : 2010-12-30
Embassy Review : We were sent to the CBP office and there was only one person there since it was so early. They took our packet and the officer proceeded to have a 15-minute conversation with a friend instead of processing us. That was slightly annoying since our dog was waiting in baggage claim and we had a connecting flight to catch (the dog was fine and we made the flight, but just barely on both counts).

The officer chit-chatted a little with us about coming to the US and processed our papers after about another 20 minutes. He was very friendly the whole time, just not the most efficient.
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
