Embassy Review : Hello again.

Hopefully our experience will help.
OK well here it goes

My wife`s appointment was at 9:00AM (keep in mind this was in Bangladesh),So she arrived around always a huge line ahead..she stood on line then went in.{experts say always arrive an hour or hour/half early prior to the appointment time}.So she went in and was waiting to be called so officials call my wife she went to window number 1 made her sign few papers took the photos and passport.Then she went back to waiting then a second time she was called window number 2 , they took her finger prints and such.Back to waiting again then for the 3rd time she was called into the interview window the agent said "
Agent: Hello
Agent: So what is your name?
Agent:OK so who applied for you?
Wife:My husband
Agent:so when and how did your husband go to America?
Wife:responses...blah blah blah
Agent:May I see some pictures
Wife:hands him the pictures
Agent: {makes her sign a paper and gives her a token}
Wife: smiles dances whatever...takes the token asks a few questions.
Agent:OK please come back tommo for your visa packet and passport

PHEW! that was real quick and easy about 3-4 minute interview..

so she exits the building and doesn`t find the people she came with lols a guy helped her etc etc.

was told to attend at 2:30pm for visa packet and passport
She arrives around 2:15pm stands on line and goes in (real quick)
waiting to be called she was called ..went to the window Agent told her the instructions
She came out (AGAIN) that was real quick!!!!

*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
