Consulate Review: Bogota, Colombia
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : April 13, 2011
Embassy Review : Our appointment was for 9am today. We arrived 8:20am. We approached the lines and moved over to line 3. After a few minutes jumped upfront to see if we were in the right line. The girl told us to just come in after we showed her our papers. Passed security, like flying out, but they would not allow anything electronic to pass so they held on to my cell phone, iPad and camera. Walked over to the registration or first parts. They gave us a folder and told us to place all of our paper work I. Order as listed. After that turned it back over and the girl said wait till they call you. After 2 hours they called us to window 32, the lady there reviewed our paper work and asked my wife a few questions about our relationship. Once she reviewed everything and dumped several other papers we were told to wait to hear our name again. After 1 hr we were called to window 2 where they took my wife's finger prints then asked again to wait. After another 45 mins were called to window 3. the guy there gave my wife the official interview. I was next to my wife the entire time. Took about 5 mins, asked a few questions and showed our pictures. Poofff we were approved. Went over to pay DAS (under 60 mil) and off we were. They are to mail my wife's passport with visa in 10 days. Ovrall it was an easy process just had to wait ALOT till our names were called. We are so happy this part is over. Thank you all for the advice and guidance on this site.

*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
