Event Description
Review Date : November 22, 2010
Embassy Review : Sorry we took so long guys to make and update and tell you how our interview/day went...HERE GOES>>> Our trip to Kingston on November 8 was harder than the interview, head out a lil b4 6:AM on our way up my friend hit a pothole in the road, blowing out both tiers on the right side, good thing thx to God he can drive else it would be worst, now we only have one spear so we r stuck, funny the same pothole we hit their comes a guy 10 mins after hitting it and chopping his 2 right tiers too...OMG. now am worried am gonna be late, no tier shop open that early, well we put the spear on and rim it to the gas station, reach their they don't sell tiers...WTH...finally we convince a taxi drive to sell us his spear thx 2 God, lol...we get moving just as we about to hit the highway, the holder for the spear under the car fly...I was so mad, stop again. fix that running late take the Boulevard, traffic like hell, now we r late but the drama aint over their comes a dummy running into the back of our car. AAAAAHHHH WTH, i was saying why me, why me this morning???? But my beautiful Fiancée kiss me on the cheeks an say " ITS GONNA BE OK BABY" Settle,luckily the damage wasn't 2 bad to the car, I finally make it their after 9:AM, explain to the Ladies @ the front they went over my papers and let us in, my Fiancée was allow to enter but she has to sit in the courtyard not in the interview room unless the CO ask for her to enter , we were happy she could come inside.
Now the wait begins it was long but i was more nervous than worried about the wait, but it went well, my number was called hand in all my docs, then comes my interview the CO was stern, yet professional with what he ask, funny I never felt intimidate after the first question I just relax...
1.If its a coincident that after I was denied 2 times my Fiancée file for me? I explain to him.
2.When i leave the U.S.A?
3.How long was I @ one of my previous jobs in the U.S.A?
4.Since I've been to JA how many time I see my Fiancée?
5.Then he say, if you had gotten ur previous visa don't you think you Fiancée would take a bit more time to know you?
6.Ask how we met?
Next thing I hear can I have your passport, funny he had it in his hand, I smile an say Sir you have it in you hand, thats the first time he, the he says ur approve give me the pink ticket an say go to DHL, say thank you to the CO,enjoy the rest of your Sir, he says thx, you too...I must say I give the Embassy staff 5 out of 5, especially Kevin, that guys just keep us smiling yet professional about what he does. My advise be prepare, be honest, funny I had all this evidence but wasn't ask for it...

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.

** Not all cases are transfered
