Event Description
Review Date : June 17, 2010
Embassy Review : Our Interview was scheduled for 8:00am we arrived at 7:15am and it was a long line and we were instucted to go to the line in the front and they checked his name off the list and wrote on the back of his pictures. We were told 5 at a time and we then went through security and out in the back and walked into another building we gave the guy at the desk the papers and he gave us a yellow slip to put hubby's passport info on and number a130 and said go have a seat to the right. It was so crowded that we had to stand and the numbers were call out of order. After about 1 hr we were called to window 5 and the lady took his finger prints and his medical and asked if he has ever been to the US before. She then told us to have a seat. As we were there everyone that went to the window got blueslips for police records and I was thinking to myself well they didn't know that they need a police record before they came here(STUPID ME). We sat for about another 1 hr and the we were call to window 9 and sworn in by a young lady she was nice but she told me that I need a co sponsor cause my income for 2009 wasn't enough so I told he i was laid off for more than half of 2009 and I called the NCV on numerous occassions and was told to that it was fine cause I make more that enough in 2010 I had 6 months paystubs and she said that it is Jamaican Embassy rule that they only use 2009 tax returns. She told me to have a seat and then he pick up the phone and talk to her and then he came back and said he also need to get a new police record. He had to leave the go sit in a line to pay for the record then when went to take the receipt so it can be order but what we saw neither of us was prepared for the inside was jammed and the line outside was to long to explain we stood out there for 5 and a hlf hours in the hot sun and he saw a guy he knew from Mobay and he let him get infront of him. The placewas to close at 3:30 we left there at almost 6:00 and it was still open an full of people. I must say me experience wasn't a good one because what they where asking for could have been taken care of before we got there. She never asked me any question or look at any of the things we brought.

*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.
