Comments : Kingsley day started at 6:00 am heading to the Embassy of Ghana for his interview. He stated the line was very long. The security guard at the Embassy of Ghana started letting people in around 7:30am. They called KO to the window @ 9:30am asking for his information and the money for the visa. Around 10:30am he was called for his interview by a male officer, which was very nice to him. The officer asks KO four questions, was I married before, do I have any kids, and their name and age, my address in the states, work history, and name of my employer.. The officer didnít ask for any photos, they only wanted to see my phone bill. VISA APPROVED.

Event Description
Review Date : November 23, 2010
Embassy Review : Kingsley day started at 6:00 am heading to the Embassy of Ghana for his interview. He stated the line was very long. The security guard at the Embassy of Ghana started letting people in around 7:30am. They called Kingsley to the window @ 9:30am asking for his information and the money for the visa. Around 10:30am he was called for his interview by a white male officer, which was very nice to him. The officer asks Kingsley four questions, was I married before, do I have any kids, and their name and age, my address in the states, work history, and name of my employer.. The officer didnít ask for our photos, they only wanted to see my phone bill. They try to bamboozle Kingsley with his answer to the questions ask by the officer. Everyone please stand firm with your answer, donít change your answer. VISA APPROVED.

*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
