Event Description
Review Date : August 9, 2011
Embassy Review : Thank you my VJ family! I got approved as well. It was really easy and super fast. No extra pics, no kind of evidence... I came 30 minutes too early and they told me to get a coffe and come back again, lol.. The lady just asked me 5 questions:
When did you get married? Do you know your husbands parents? Where will you live in the US? Where does your husband work?
Since when are you 2 together? So, when I told her that we met 4 years ago on an tropical island and fell in love right away and that we spent the best 2 days together then, she smiled and said "That's so romantic!" And I was approved right away, haha...
I'll get a call tomorrow and can pick up my visa anytime...
Rating : 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
