Consulate Review: Manila, Philippines
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : July 15, 2011
Embassy Review : It has been posted many times about what and what not before you can enter the US embassy ground, so there;s no need to say it again one more time. Besides, its all the same from what they went through

July 15, 2011

I was inside US embassy at 7 a.m and was done around 11:30. I was interviewed first by a Filipina and the first thing I heard from her was "ang ganda naman ng buhok mo!" at the back of my mind I was like (rebonded kasi haha) and told her thanks. Her being nice really helped me calm my nerves. She even started asking me questions which can only be answered with a yes or no. Simple eh?

She was like:

1. So your name is Ms. abcdefghi? Yes
2. So you are 22? Yes
3. So your petitioner is Mr. abcdefghi? Yes
4. He is your boyfriend? I said no, he is my fiance haha and she was like, "ayaw mo ng boyfriend ha, gusto mo talaga fiance" and we both laughed.
6. How and when did you meet? Follow up questions were, when did it became official and when was the last time I saw him.
7. What did you finished in college and where do you work?

- She also asked about my BC and my son as to why it was late registered and she was satisfied with my answers.
- She then asked for my fiances I-134, W2, ITR and paystubs and wants to look at our pictures together. While she's scanning it, she keeps giving me and my fiancé good compliments. Then finally, she told me to take my seat and wait for the the finger scanning and final interview.

Finger scanning was quick, it was a beautiful American woman who was at window 40 and just asked about my name and date of birth as well as my son.

It took like I think almost 2 hours when my number flashed again and that's where I have to go for my final interview. Window 64, great! This was the consul whom the lady told me that was nice and very cool. Indeed, he really was! He greeted me with a beautiful smile and that washes the fears away. He then asked me to raise my right hand and took an oath. He also asked me questions with just a yes or no answer. Such as:

1. So your name is Ms. abcdefghi? Yes
2. Mr. abcdefghi is your petitoner? Yes
3. Have you been out of the country? I answered him right away and he said, okay great. I don't need to ask you question number 4. LOL
4.When did you meet? I gave him a brief and direct answer and he was like, I love your answer. )

He keep typing on his computer and he then asked me a question as if he almost forgot about it. He was like "Oh by the way, do you swear to marry Mr. abcdefghi within 90 days?" I was like, "Yes sir, I cant even wait" with enthusiasm in my voice and he laughed. After a few sec, he opened an envelope and told me those are our pictures and he wanted to take a look. He scanned through it while throwing very flattering compliments and told me he wanted to to see more of it but he doesn't have more time. It was then I heard him say "you're approved" really made my day.

And oh, he was also very nice to my son. He even told the boy " I keep seeing you roaming around the place and at last, its good to finally talk to you right now." LOL

Over all, it was such a pleasant experience. Our K1 visa journey only took 4 months, 2 weeks and 3 days. Thank God for guiding us through. I know the process doesn't end there but at least

Rating : Very Good

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
