I'm sure it says somewhere on here what the procedure is at POE, but I was curious if any Australians who came to the US on the K1 would share their experience. (I know I could look through timelines, but there tends to be little detail.) My fiance was told everyone gets pulled aside, is this true?

Thanks,

Kat

You may want to ask the specifics for Australians in the country forum. However, depending on your POE, you can read reviews of other experiences here: http://www.visajourney.com/reviews/poereviews.php

I did CR-1.... but yes everyone gets 'pulled aside'. But it's not usually the bad experience ppl think when they think of getting 'pulled aside' at immigration. They usually just need to take you to a secondary area to process your paperwork (ie hand in the big 'Do Not Open' envelope that will be sent from the consulate). All they did with mine was take a quick look at what was in my package, have me sign a form, took my fingerprint, and stamp and date my passport.

Hi,

I had an easy entry and was not pulled aside. I was also not issued with and I94. This is apparently no problem, but I'll have to wait to see if I get an RFE during AOS. Coming from Aus through LAX they don't worry too much because we are a Aussies.

Filed 15th June, 2012
NOA date 18th June
Bio appt 20th July
Transferred to CSC 21st July, 2012

Received Green Card 6th October. No Interview. Amazing!
Thanks for all the help, see you again in June 2014

No it's not true that everyone gets pulled aside. I entered via LAX and had no issues. My review is in my timeline :)

Yes I'm quite interested to see the outcome. Getting an I-94 is very important so I'll be really surprised if you don't get an RFE (but of course happy for you :D).
