Consulate Review: Nigeria
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : April 11, 2011
Embassy Review : First interview denied in 2009. Second interview alot better. It was still a few hang-ups but God intervined. The consulate officer this time around very nice and not rude at all. Thank God for that guy. Sorry not sure of his name, but he did do a little more thorough investigating from last interview which lead to questions of why first interview was denied. We almost thought we had to go through this journey longer when an I-601 was issued but it was withdrawed. Process extremely trying but positive results. The storm is over! My husband is home!

*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
