Consulate Review: Tokyo, Japan
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : July 12, 2018
Embassy Review : It was a quite smooth interview. Questions are as follow:
1. what is the name of your fiancé?
2. how do you meet?
3. when was your first time meet each other?
4. what did you do during the first time you visit the US?
5. when did you go there for the second time?
6. has he been to Japan?
7. when do you plan to get married?
8. does your fiance have minisota accent?(well this is a joke probably)

there was a very long wait before i got interviewed. i arried at 10:15 am, and got in the embassy without waiting online.
but i was the second last to get interviewed i think. so when i got out of the embassy, it was already almost 2pm. very bored and anxious.
so i would suggest to go earlier, since they are basicly not following the time given anyway.

btw i had a 15 days AP after my oral approval at the interview. 7 days in Immigrant visa application AP and 7 days in Non-immigrant AP.
this was quite a frustrating waiting, glad i did not buy ticket too early. so warning here, an oral approval does not gurantee anything. wait your case to become "issued" then make any plans.
Rating : Moderate

*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
