Consulate Review: Mumbai, India
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : April 21, 2017
Embassy Review : Hello All,

I will keep it to the point.

Reached consulate at 07:15 am for a 07:30 am interview. No bags and cellphones allowed. There are rickshaw drivers outside who provide locker facility at a bomb price.

Went through security and was in the waiting area within minutes. There were long queues for "Non immigrant" visas but for K1 applicants.

Documents were organised by a lovely Indian lady, she asked for the following.

1) i134
2) Employment letter and pay stubs (petitioner)
3) Tax returns and W2 for 2016 only.
4) I volunteered to give her bank statements for 6 months.
5) My birth certificate , original and copy; original was returned after.
6) Passport.

All seemed in order and I was asked to wait.

About 30 minutes later, I was called again, this time to be interviewed by an American Consul officer. He was very polite. Took my oath and interview begins, it seemed more like a conversation than an interview but here is what we discussed.

1) How did you guys meet?
2) When was she divorced?
3) How do my parents and her parents take to us getting together as she is "Pakistan origin"?
4) What are our plans for marriage?
5) Whether I read the domestic violence pamphlet?
6) A little about the children?

He asked me to wait for 2 minutes and he came back and said "Congratulations, your visa is approved"!!!

No proof of relationship needed or any uncomfortable questions asked. If your relationship is genuine and if you answer everything honestly, you won't have any trouble.

Good luck to everyone else who are waiting to get with their loved ones.
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
