Consulate Review: Sydney, Australia
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : September 13, 2011
Embassy Review : So just adding my review
Basically I got there about 15 minutes earlier. The security were busy and I got held up cause 1 of the cards I had, had a recordable message in it and they couldn't work out what it was that kept setting off the scanner. Anyway managed to get up to level 59, waited for 3 mins before they called my number up to go through my documents. They lady was really nice, they took finger prints and went through a few more items and then asked me to take a seat till I would have my interview with the Consulate officer.

I waited around 5 mins before I was called up, i was surprised it was just in the open behind the glass, i pictured it to be in a office at a desk and private. Anyway got asked the following questions:

Have I been to the US?
Have I had any drama with the police?
When did I go last?
When did we first start talking?
So if it was online, what website?
When did you first meet?
Does her family approve of you marrying her even if you haven't met them?
When did you first talk about marriage and when was it thought to go through the move to the US?

I can't remember what else they asked, But It was all over and done within 25-30 mins in total of being up there. Next minute she said, congratulations yours visa has been approved you now must marry within 90 days of entering the US.

For her to say that my body just filled with excitement. I was almost about to ask, Excuse me? cause i was sooo excited and glad its approved. Called my fiancee straight away, she was sooooo happy and screaming to me with excitement.
The rest of the day was amazing.
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
