Consulate Review: Ukraine
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 13, 2017
Embassy Review : We went too early. Google maps estimated a 15 minute drive time in traffic and we assumed a taxi would take 15 minutes to arrive at our hotel. The taxi took 5 minutes and traffic was non-existent from 7-7:30 AM.

There is a little trailer across from the embassy entrance to store (small) personal items for 40 UAH. You give them your stuff and you'll get a receipt to pay when you pick up.

We went through security and waited to be called to drop off documents. At the document window some basic questions were asked including whether or not fiance is present... and fingerprints taken.

We waited 15-20 minutes and then called for interview. He made her recite the oath... read her fingerprints... have you ever been in US? Is your fiance present? I was called over to the window and he asked if we could continue in English. How did you meet? He asked me about my work and my travel history (I have spent over half a year with my fiancee in various countries). Approved.

In general... pleasant and smooth experience. I've had far worse experiences in airports dealing with security and being questioned. We expected the worst and were shocked when it went so smoothly.

Rating : Very 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
