Consulate Review: Manila, Philippines
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : July 7, 2010
Embassy Review : When you start the process, do your homework and spend the time to put together your I-130, AOS and DS-230 packages completely and make 3 copies of them. Once you get your I-130 approved (NOA2), things will begin to move very fast so, have all your paperwork ready. Do all your payments online and you will save lots of time as well. Once the NVC approves all your paperwork and forwards it to the Embassy, go take your medical and also go sit for the film at the CFO. Do as much as you can in advance and you will save lots of time and stress as well. The interview is a tossup really. Our prescreener only asked a few simple questions and wanted to see our Photos. The Consular asked only 2 yes/no questions besides Mine and my Husbands names and birthdates: Have you been to another Country before, and do you have kids. I was disappointed because I had been carrying that heavy file pouch around since 5am. I almost asked, IS THAT IT?..LOL..Just glad it went so easy. GOODLUCK TO ALL ON YOUR JOURNEY AND THANKS TO ALL OF YOU THAT HELPED US ON OURS...

*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
