Consulate Review: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : October 23, 2010
Embassy Review : Arrived and had two separate lines. 1 for immigrant visas and another for other services. They checked our passport photos while standing in line to enter the consulate. A couple people needed to retake their photo due to hair covering the ears. Entered through security about 8am where we checked our cell phone. Headed upstairs to the immigrant visa processing room. Everyone was asked to put their documents in the correct order. Then we were called by name where they checked the order of the documents. After they called us to go into one of the rooms where they pulled our file of all documents sent to immigration and the NVC. He verified we had all the required documents and gave back all the documents previously submitted. I brought all originals and certified documents to the interview just in case something got misplaced in the process. But they received everything from the NVC and did not need anything more. After we sat back down and waited. We waited a long time due to the fact that only one lady was making the interviews. But after being called, the interview took about 5 minutes. The questions were basic: How did you meet, what she plans due to do in the U.S., Where we will live etc. After the approval, the lady gave us a green slip where we took it down stairs to pay the courier. I think standard service was about R$30.00 and expedited service which I payed was R$ 88.00. From arrival to leaving we were there about 5 hours. It was a good and pretty easy experience. The only complaint is the long wait due to one person making the actual interviews.
Rating : Good
