Consulate / USCIS Member Review #31895

Guayaquil, Ecuador Review on March 18, 2023:



Review Topic: K1 Visa

The consulate in Ecuador is still doing a two day interview process as of March 2023. She was the only person allowed into the consulate for the interview.

Day 1: My fiance arrived at 12 PM for her 12:30 interview. Once inside she submitted all the requested documents and they took her fingerprints. She was asked if she was single and free to marry, if she had ever lived in any other country outside of Ecuador, and if she had any kids or had been previously married. They then gave her a copy of the original I129F I submitted to USCIS and gave her an 8:45 AM appointment the next day, but told her to be there by 8:30. She was out of the consulate at 1:30.

Day 2: She arrived at 7:40 AM to a much longer line. There were a lot of people with the same appointment time so the wait was longer. We've been together for over 10 years so the first question they asked why we haven't gotten married yet and what made us decide to marry now. They then asked how we met, how many times I have visited her in Ecuador, how long were my visits, how many times has she visited the US on a tourist visa, and to explain how I proposed to her. The asked if she or I had been married before, and also asked if we had any kids together. The officer then approved her and gave a small paper noting the approval. She was out of the consulate at 10:20.
