Transferred to Local INS office in Washington -Aug 15th RD


Registered Users (C)
Can we keep in touch with this thread for the guys whose cases are getting transferred to Washington office?

My I485 application is transferred to Washington DC local INS office for Interview.

Can somebody throw some light on the following issues?

1. Is it good or bad
2. How long does this take to get interview scheduled?
3. Anybody in the same boat as me?
4. What are the chances of 485 getting rejected if we go for interview? Not that I am worried but wanted to get ducks in a row...

Thanks for the support guys!

I know of only Northern VA cases which got transferred to Arlington office. I don't see any other local office in VA so it could be Arlington..


Registered Users (C)

magesh_kk: No I did not mean that.. all NVA cases are transferred to Arlington, What I mean was if they are transferred for interview they will be transferred to Arlington.

Dhanush: Sorry to hear that.. What the hell are these guys doing there?? Did you approach the Senator/Congressmen?? Did you personally visit Arlington office?

Hope you get interview call soon...

ALERT !!!!


One of my close friend whose

RD is : 12/19

Got his case transferred to Arlington, VA sometime mid of August
and got his interview scheduled yesterday 09/06. His pay was
cut short due to the market situation by our desi consulting
company. He showed his 6 months pay stub, W-2 forms,
Marriage Certificates, Employment letter. The INS officer asked
him how come his pay is less than one specified in the LC. Did
the company file any amendment?. He explained the officer that
this was due to the market now & the company has promised
him to raise in couple of months.

B'cas the INS officer was quite nice, he got through the
interview and he got stamped yesterday. It seems like all the
Northern Virginia cases (DEC, JAN, FEB....) will be transferred to
local Arlington office.

My another friend is also in the same date range (RD 12/21)
and currently he is not in the project. But his employer is ready
to give him employment letter but not pay stubs. My question
his whether INS will just accept employment letter & W-2 forms
without seeing last few months pay stubs??. B'cas GC is for
future job and he is getting employment letter from his employer
(which is a promise for future job). It's mystery. Anybody came
across this situation? Please suggest or post your experience.

Iam also eagerly waiting for the transfer.
