Consulate Review: Manila, Philippines
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : February 2, 2011
Embassy Review : Our wait at the embassy was rather long and boring but the outcome was good for the wait because we were approved. The first thing they had us do was to get a number once inside and then it was chosen at random when we were to be seen for the finger scan we had been there about 2 hours waiting for this. Then
pre-screen interview took place about an hour after that then they went to lunch so had to wait another 2 hours so now have been in embassy about 6 hours getting tired by now but patient's is a virtue they say. so after they come back from lunch we were the second ones called for our interview and it went good for us. Thank God javascript:emoticon('')

*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
