Embassy Review :

My interview went good today . visa was approved. Here's my interview experience:

As i live closeby I started from home at 8.15am n reached 8.25am there really 30 minutes before n stood in a line with appointment letter n passport n other docs...thats all i was purse /bag , i entered,,,, i went thru the security check..very smooth...went inside a hall where they gave me a white token J26 (i didnít knew all i have to do is to wait for this token number to appear on counters there for most of the time ...thats all ya do there...wait wait n wait for token number to appear.) so i reached sharp 9am (my appointment time) at 10.30 am They called my number and i went to the counter 29 for pre-screening of docs where an Indian man took my pending docs (birth certificate n medical report) and my fingerprints. He got the vfs package n started to return me the original docs ( i was returned everything original / all pics i submitted n all the call logs , boarding passes etc..infact everything that constitute proof of relationship) After he aligned all the paperwork he gave me a token to pay the fee draft at counter number 24 n return back to him the receipts..did so n then was asked to sit down n wait for my turn for final interview.. so waited for till 11.50 am till my J26 again appeared on the counter number 22.

The CO officer was a very nice n polite American. We greeted eachother n he asked me if i speak English..i said yes n followed the oath to speak truth. I donít know if i looked funny..he smiled at me n asked the following questions:

1. Who is your Fiance?
2. Where did ya meet?
3. He smiled n asked ...what was i doing at the dating site n why dating site?....i answered n he laughed ...i smiled too
4. If our parents approve of our wedding? What about his parents?
5. Where do they live?
6. Ya live in new delhi n he lives in gujrat...i said no he was born in gujrat n lives in US.
7. Where does he work?
8. What is he working there as?
9. Why are ya getting married in US n not in India?
10. Did ya had an engagement party?

Didnt ask to see any pics ...

He smiled again n said visa is approved n shall get it in a weeks time..
All this while he went to type something just once..else it was a very normal conversation of sorts..i never felt i was being interviewed.. The guy was really really nice n kept similing all the time.

All these Questions just took about only 2 mins...yes only 2 mins ..n i was done.. reached home at 12. 10 noon. Had lunch..relaxed posting review for all of ya

All the Best to Everyone .....Cheers!
Rating : Very Good

*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.
