Long wait for both the initial screening and also the follow-up review of the K1 visa. Agent was friendly and asked only basic questions, including city of origin, whether we had a wedding date planned yet, etc. Total of about 2 hours to leave customs and immigration with the luggage.

I waited almost 3 hours to let go from the custom after my plane landed. My information was checked once at the port of entry where everyone waits in the line. The waiting time was around 40 mins the first inspection. After answer few questions, I was handed a box of which my passport was locked inside and told I need to go to another room for further inspection. I then walked into a room where people have their luggage scanned. The room has approximately 30 people waiting at the sitting area. I waited about 2 hours, and finally someone start to go through my paperwork. I was asked simple questions about wedding date and where my fiance is (who was waiting for me outside for almost 4 hours). Then my passport was stamped. The entire waiting thing is totally unnecessary if they have someone working at the port of entry with ability to process K-1 paperwork.

We stayed in line for three hours before getting to the immigration stand. When I got there, the lady took my passport, put it in a transparent box and sent me to “secondary”i guess. I stayed another one hour there waiting to be called. The officer called me and gave me a pen and a piece of paper to write my fiancé’s address. I wrote it down and she said welcome to America. I took my suitcase and left to meet bae who had been in the waiting area for six hours waiting for me. Lol.

CR-1 VIS APPLICANT:
We landed in IAD at 6:30 am. The officers were very stone cold, but it was smooth. We went through a special line, after asking where to go for first entry to U.S. We waiting in line for 30 minutes, hearing how they grilled other first entries. The Asian officer was rough and very rude, frankly; but we got the Hispanic officer who spoke Spanish, but he chose to speak to us in English. He was stone cold, no emotion, no smile. He opened our sealed packet and then sent us to follow down the red line on the ground and into a hallway to another security check point and waiting area. The officers took our paperwork and told us to sit in the waiting area. After 5 minutes, he called us up and said “okay you are good to go.” I clarified the renewing of the CR-1 and he said the green card would have the expiration date and that we could always call USCIS to confirm.
