Consulate Review: Sweden
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : September 29, 2016
Embassy Review : I arrived at the Consulate around 7:20 and when I got there, there was one person before me in the immigrant line. Remember to go to immigrant! As the embassy opens around 8am, we had to wait. Eventually they started calling people in, and as we got through the embassy security, you walk up to Window 7! The guard right inside helps you a lot if necessary.

I got called up to Window 7 and the friendly woman in the window took my papers, asked me a few questions such as how did you two meet, when did you meet, what did your parents think about your meeting (as we had letters about our relationship from his parents as well as mine). Remember, that this is not the interview! It's just to gather information and documents. I then got told to take a seat and wait for my name to be called.

After about 10-20 minutes, I got called into the next window, and that's where my interview was held. A very nice man held it, I took my fingerprints and I held my oath.

Then it was time for the actual interview! I got the following questions:
What does your fiancée do for a living?
Where did you meet?
Why did you decide to get married?
What will you do in the US?

After that he looked through my paper-folder, and he said that I was approved and can expect my visa in 2 weeks!
Rating : Very Good

POE Review: Denver
Event Description
Entry Date : 2016-10-21
Embassy Review : Easier than I thought it would've been! I arrived late afternoon Friday, and headed straight for VISA section of Denver airport. Down there there was probably around 20 people before me and within 10 minutes I was in front of the officer.

I told him I was there on a K1 visa and he was new at immigration so he had no clue what I was talking about. He asked for help from another officer and he told him to make sure I know I have 90 days to marry and that sorta thing. He grabbed my papers and excused himself once again and left. 5 minutes later he showed up and asked me the following questions:
* Who is your fiancée
* Where did you meet your fiancée
* When did you meet in person
* How many times have you met in person
* Is 3 times enough to marry? WIth a grin.

After that he took my fingerprints and my photo, then he stamped my passport and sent me going. It was really easy and not at all hard.
Harassment Level : Low

*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
