Consulate Review: Manila, Philippines
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : September 25, 2017
Embassy Review : My fiance and I arrived a little before the schedule time. No phones allowed inside! We were quickly transferred to the interview window section and seated to wait for our turn. When we were brought to the window to do a pre-interview with a lady, we were asked for all the required documentation, supporting documents, etc. She also asked me about several trips to other countries, including a couple day trip to India.

When asked for the relationship evidence (we didn't frontload), we passed over a couple folders of photos, emails, chats, etc. over the past couple years together. She briefly looked at a few of them but didn't seem too concerned. Two photos of particular interest were selfies of us dressed up for Halloween and a silly photo of us in the snow. She laughed at them and said it was fine, and lightened up at that point. We were at the counter for about 11-12 minutes, which seemed longer than most others.

After that, they took my fingerprints. The guy taking them was visibly annoyed that the system was not capturing many of the visa applicants' fingerprints well. Oh well. I didn't have any issues personally.

Afterwards we were put into another area to wait for the interview with a CO. The family in front of us got a 221g for missing documents (a police cert, IIRC). The CO greeted us, swore me in, and seemed happy that my fiance was there with me (she asked him some basic, friendly questions as well). The CO asked about past travel plans, wedding plans, what we do together, etc. Nothing really unexpected. She said everything looked good and she will recommend an approval of the visa. We both said thanks and she gave us a pamphlet and we left.

*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
