Event Description
Review Date : June 17, 2010
Embassy Review : Mi experiencia Junio 16,2010…7.30 a.m

Nos levantamos a las 5.40 a.m. y salimos de la habitación a las 6.35 a.m. nos paramos en el buffet a recoger algo de comer y nos fuimos a las 6.50 a.m

Llegamos a las 7.05 a.m a la entrada del consulado luego de parquearnos y no había nadie en la fila pues la seguridad entro a todo el mundaso junto..gracias a Dios que no madrugamos..entramos directo y nos sentamos..

A la 7.35 a.m nos llamaron a la ventanilla 14 para depositar los documentos solo entregamos el pasaporte, la cedula, el sobre con el examen medico, el ticket del popular y el papel de la policianos dieron el numero de la suerte 183…a las 9.30 a.m nos llaman para las huellas a la ventana 13.. siempre llamaban en grupo

Entre una cosa y la otra un señor que estaba sentado atrás de nosotros se le bajo la presión y convulsiono, me da pena que ahí no haya ningún equipo medico al final no se que paso con el señor..

A partir de las 10 a.m fue que empezaron las entrevistas… no vi al chinito creo que estaba en la 17 y no tenia vista

El de la 18 un gordo grande era un terror

El de la 22 un jovencito era un amor..

Entre las 10 a.m y las 12 solo entrevistaron unas 25 personas…de esas talvez 4 aprobaron luego todas las mandaban a sentar…y algunas las negaban ahí mismo

Hubo una pareja que de seguro eran novios pero se veía que estaban enamorados que cuando salió el numero la muchacha tiro un grito que a mi me entro un ataque de risa..

Fui al bano 3 veces

A las 12 p.m se fueron a comer solo quedo alguien el la 19 que entrevisto 3 familias en esa hora y los aprobaron eran familias

Ahí comimos un sándwich y un jugo

A las 1 p.m regresaron los consules

A las 1.35 p.m nos llamaron a la casilla 25 ..nos dimos un beso y entramos

Llegamos era un cónsul de algunos 38 anos..nos saludo muy amablemente..nos pregunto los nombres y nos hizo el juramento.

Abrió el expediente nos dijo que era un expediente muy limpio y arreglado que le gusta..le dimos las gracias

Nos pregunto cuentemen como se conocieron..Migue respondió y yo agregue unos detalles lo hize en ingles..de ahí el cónsul siguió en ingles y español..

Le pregunto a mi brujo te has casado anteriormente tienes hijos? el respondió

A mi: has viajado ¿? Cuando fue la ultima vez??

A Miguel: cuantas veces vienes y con que frecuencia??

A mi tienes hijos??

Nos dijo que si teníamos fotos que le mostraramos ..le pase un sobre con fotos, el las vio super rápido y le pase la revista de Oh magazine el se rio y nos dijo uaoo es la primera vez que alguien trae algo asi..



Luego escribió algo en la compu y nos dijo las palabras mágicas FELICIDADES su visa esta aprobada nos dio el ticket verde para pagar en DOMEX y nos dijo antes de irnos HEY DIGANME COMO SE LLAMA EL GRUPO DE ROCK ESE QUE ERAN FANS QUE LO QUIERO ESCUCHAR HAHAHA..le dije entre a youtube y lo encontrara..

De ahí pagamos y nos fuimos

Con el cónsul no duramos ni 3 minutos..

ENGLISH VERSION

We got up at 5.40 am and left the room at 6.35 am we stopped at the buffet to pick up some food and went to the 6:50 a.m.

We arrived at 7:05 a.m. at the entrance of the consulate after parking and there was nobody in line to enter, when we enter there were about
+ persons

At 7:35 a.m. we were called to the window 14 to deposit the documents only deliver the passport, identification card, the envelope containing the medical examination, the ticket of the popular and police paper. got the lucky number 183 ... 9.30 am we are called to do the fingerprints to window 13 .. always called in a group


Between one thing and the other a man who was sitting behind us was under pressure and seizures, there are no medical equipment at the end I do not know what happened with him. ..

From 10 am started the interviews was that ... I did not see the infamous chinese consul

Between 10 am and 12 met only about 25 of those people ... maybe four approved then all sent to sit ... and some were denied right there

I went to the bathroom 3 times

Then we ate a sandwich and a juice

At 1 p.m. Consuls returned

At 1.35 pm we were called to the box 25 .. we kissed

the consul was around 38 years .. .. kindly greeting us asked us our names and we took the oath.

He opened the file he said it was a very clean file ..he like it and we said thanks ..

ask to both .. tell me how you met and My hubby answered .I add some detail I did it in English .. from there the consul remained in English and Spanish ..

ask miguel: is this your first marriage?? do you have kids?

To me: "have you traveled to USA? When was the last time?

To Miguel: how many times you come and how often?

to me: do you have children?

He told us that if we had pictures that we want to show him .. I pass an envelope with photos, he saw them super fast and the I gave him the magazine he laughed and told us uaoo is the first time someone brings something like that ..



Then he wrote something on the computer and told us the magic words CONGRATULATIONS your visa is approvedgave us the green ticket to pay DOMEX and told us before we go HEY HOW IS IT CALLED THE ROCK GROUP THAT YOU WERE FANS I WANT TO HEAR THEM HAHAHA .. I told him go to youtube and you will found it..

From there we paid the courier fee and we left

With the consul did not last either three minutes ..


GRACIAS MI DIOS..THANK YOU GOD

*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.
