Review Topic: K1 Visa

Hi VJers,

My fiance, a citizen of Botswana, had his K1 visa at the end of August at the Joburg Consulate. Interview went very smooth, no trick questions, and although we had mountains of evidence for the I-134, nothing was specifically asked for. The one hiccup was that the Consulate's printer was broken, so although he was approved at the end of the interview, he had to travel back to Botswana, DHL his passport to the Joburg Consulate and arrange for DHL to pick it up and ship it to Botswana---at his own cost. That added another 2 weeks from the time he got approved to when he physically had his visa. Other than that the Consular staff were super responsive and friendly.

Review Topic: K1 Visa

My fiance's interview went so well! From the guards outside the consulate to the immigration officers handling his case, everyone was nice, friendly, calming and personable.
They let me inside to be with him, allowed me to come up to the window when they asked him questions and even allowed me to answer questions about our relationship.

It was great!

They asked:

Where did you meet?
When did you meet?
What do you plan on doing when you get to America?
You had a tradtional wedding ceremony, what was that like?
Will you be in Johannesburg for a couple to days so you can pick up your visa?

That was it!
