Consulate Review: Islamabad, Pakistan
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : July 27, 2011
Embassy Review : My husband had his interview June 15th. They did question him for quite some time about our relationship, my work, my ex, my children, the reason for me converting to islam, whether or not I was on his facebook and asked to show the CO his Facebook account. There are too many questions for me to put on here.

In the end, he of course had AP...and we had to submit another document to verify my household.

After 6 weeks on AP I got a call on Monday June 25 from the same CO that interviewed my husband. He basically did a phone interview asking me about 15 questions.

In the end he said while he can't technically say we are approved he can tell me that we have nothing to worry about with our case and now they can do one last check on my husband which is namecheck... I asked him how that worked if it ws similar to our banking check for new customers where we put in name and if all is fine we open account but if it has a hit we put a little more detail until we are satisfied that customer is ok ...he said that is exactly the way it works. (it seems that they don't begin this particular check until they are satisfied the relationship is genuine)

On a side note he also said that they do this kind of extra checking because they want the USC to be happy and its their job to be sure the person applying is sincere.

So while we don't have the actual approved yet... becaue he said to me several times we have nothing to worry about and now they can do the last check I know Adil will be home soon!!

*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.
