K1 Visa APPROVED!!!!

36 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Had our interview today in Jamaica.... Arrived at the Embassy with my fiancé at 9:00 for a 9:30 appointment. Wasn't much of a line outside and checked in with the First Lady outside. She looked at our appointment letter and circled the date and time and gave it back. Also looked at the DS160 confirmation page. We were then instructed to go in the building, where we went through security. Went through the courtyard to the consular building, where we were greeted by another worker, who took both of our passports, and the appt letter , looked at ds160 confirmation, and receipt for paying visa. She gave the passports back but kept the appt letter. They had him write his passport number on a piece of paper and attached our number and directed us into another area where we waited for our number to be called.

We were called to the first window at 9:15. She asked for ds160 conf page, receipt of payment, original birth certificate for him, no impediment (original), police record (original), Affidavit of Support form along with tax returns and employer letter. I had the bank letter, statements, check stubs, benefits and retirement available but she did not ask for them. Only the tax returns and letter from employer. She had him sign 2 papers, 1. Stating he hasn't gotten married since No Imped issued. 2. That he wouldn't get married until he enters the US.

She then took his passport and passport pictures and stapled in our folder. Fingerprinted him and told us to have a seat and wait for name to be called..

Wasn't a long wait, but it sure felt like it was forever!!! We were both nervous. We got called up to another window and she was very nice and pleasant. Took fingerprints again for verification.

She asked if he had been married before, and if I had been married before. We both have so we showed her our divorce decrees and she gave them back.

Asked him if he had been to US before, which he has, and then asked why he came back to Jamaica.

She mentioned this was our second filing and the only other question she asked was why he didn't make it to the interview of our previously filed K1 Petition.

She took NO evidence of our relationship or any other documents. Told us everything looked in order and to go home and wait for the Visa to come.... You are APPROVED, Best of Luck to y'all.

Only issue we had is that we have a trip planned in July that he will need his passport for and with the computer glitch that is happening we were concerned he wouldn't get it back in time. The lady was very helpful and eased our worry. She gave him an appointment for the day before our trip and said if he hadn't received the passport and visa before then he could come back to embassy and pick up his passport for the trip, and then return it to them when he returns. We walked out of the Embassy at 10:00...

We were excited and surprised that they let me attend the interview with him.. So glad that this step is over and we can move on... PRAISE JESUS... So glad our CO was personable!!!! Now time to pop the champagne!! LOL

Good luck to everyone out there waiting!!!
